06' gsxr 600 worth the price difference over 05'

ready for an upgrade finally.

I want my new bike to be dual purpose (street/track) which means ill get a extra set of complete wheels with track tires for track and a set of track body work for whatever bike i decide on.

I know the 06 has the slipper clutch which really has me leanin toward spendin the extra cash for it, but the 05 uses alot of the same parts i already have plus parts are easier to find bein that its been out longer.

If you had $7500 to put into a bike would you get the nicer bike to begin with and have no money left over to upgrade(at least not right away) or spend more like 6k and have 1500 left over to upgrade right away

I just dont want to buy a 04 or 05 and then find out later that i should have spent $1000 more for the 06.

ill make a poll too.

experiences/opinions/anything welcome

In my opinion, yes. 06 has adjustable rearset for those that don't already know. The styling is better looking and current for resale value. Over all better bike for the price.

Aside from what the spammer above thinks...

I'd go with the '04/5 bike for the reasons you listed, and take it one step further by saving money by buying a '04/5 track bike and keeping your current bike for the street.

Having a street/ track bike is usually not very productive or practical (I know some that do it and don't have a problem, it's just my opinion).

Get the '04/5 "track ready" bike for even less (and usually has the spares you listed included in the price) and keep your current street bike for the street.

Why not just get a 750 without doing the work?

Why? Not hatin', just asking. Doesn't make any sense to me for a track bike. Why not just get a 750 instead of spending the money on a 600, then spending the money on a 750 engine, and then having the problems only a mod like that can bring?

well in my opinion, i think the new style is ugly,tail section looks like you flipped ur bike,and the blinkers in the mirrors? ugly,even on track days,when guys fold the mirrors foward,and tape them,vs. taking them off. and the difference on 05 and 06 they did the motor internals diff as well as the bodywork,but for a street/track bike he wants,i would do the 05, cause all the hassel to change fairings upper would be a pain cause the mirrors with the lights and all. but thats my opinion,id still go with a 04/05,plus he can upgrade parts from the 750's too. they fit the same. if he swaped out his motor to a 750,all he has to do is a 750 map and he's done

Not for me, I have my gixxer6 and wouldn't trade it for anything else.

Just for perspective though, you could very well get a race ready 750 for $5k or less with spares. Get a slipper clutch for $600 and a power commander for $250, suspension is already top-notch except to maybe add a Ohlins shock.

For a track bike, IMHO, especially for a new guy to the track, there is no good reason for getting a '06 vs '05.

I rode my '02 GSXR600 yesterday, then I got on a friend's '07 GSXR600... WHAT A DIFFERENCE!!! The '02 was so heavy and big and blahh feeling compared to the '07... between those two, my choice would be easy (money not being a concern).

I guess the '04/'05 would fall somewhere in between...
