Building track/street bike. Need some info and help.

Ok, so I will be moving and loosing my garage space so really no room for 2 bikes anymore. Plus I have a family in my life now so I really need to simplify a tad. What I want to do is have a all purpose street/track bike. Some background I have been doing trackdays for a few years now and I would say that I run in the middle of the pack in level 2 comfortably. I don't really push much I just go out there and I have a good time, and I don't care about getting faster as much as smoother and being as safe as possible. (family reasons now)

What my idea is I have a track bike now with alot of goodies on it and a buddy is selling a newer version of the same bike with low miles, but no goodies. What I would like to do is pull the suspension off my track bike along with a couple of other things. The bike that I have now is 06 suzuki gsxr 750, the bike he is selling is either an 08-09 750, he is going to get back to me on that part.

For the new bike I would either like to get the full bazzaz (tc and quickshifter) or I have been told my other option really is to pick up a stand alone qs and have my ecu flashed.

So my questions are for you bazzaz users how is the tc compared to bikes with built in tc? Also what are prices to get a good tune put on and where to go?

With the other option of flashing the ecu where could I go to have this done and how much does this normally run? I think the stand alone qs is around $200 and this will be a cheaper option.

I will have an extra set of rims and running sticky tires on the track so that will help with tire slippage (so not really sure if I need tc or not.) I have never had much of a problem with tires slipping until my last trackday when I ran a tire that was not as good on the track. Now I know that I do need a track tire for track, not street.

To any of you that can help and actually read this whole post thank you alot. I know I got a tad long winded but I tried to be as clear as possible. Keep them on two wheels, and good luck this season.

I'm my opinion, nun of the performance mods are needed for what you want and for your pace. I would just get the newer bike and do mods for crash protection. Like case covers and clipons. Maybe some rear sets and better levers. Run sticky tires.

Street tires and stock bike are good all the way through level 2. It's your money, if you want the newer bike, go for it. But you don't need to do anything to it to run the pace you run.

My teammate has had issues galore with bazzaz both as a fuel controller and quickshift across 2 different bikes.

My annotori standalone quickshift has been flawless.

Suspension, steering dampener, and a roll of blue tape.

That's all I had on my Street / Track ZX6R. Did double duty fine. All that other stuff is not needed at your pace.

On the current SV I have suspension, rearsets, exhaust, and jetting - but the exhaust / jetting was already there before it became track / street bike.
