2005 R6 or 636?

Im working on getin a newer bike. Which bike should I get? I like both bikes and I have a chance to get the 636 with 4k miles for $6800. I don't have a car so I will be riding the bike a lot, but I will still have my zzr for to and from work. I was kinda woried about the comfort level. I think the R6 is a little better for comfort. Well any help would be great thanks guys. Oh yeah and I have until like wed to make mind up on that 636. :dontknow:

$6800 for a 03-04 636 is too much. if its a 05 then yes. the 03-04 zx6r has a very aggresive stance that can be a pain in the . i shaved my seat and can only ride for about 1hr straight without having my burn.

Re: 2005 R6 or 636?

Yeah its an '05. Do you think it would be dumb to buy an '05 now that the '06s r about to come out? I dont want to spend all that money on a new one, but you think I should wait and see if I can catch a better deal closer to the end of the year on the '05s?

Re: 2005 R6 or 636?

Im going to talk to him in the morn. Hes trying to trade the bike in at wild west honda in katy. He talked to the sales manager at wild west this afternoon and told him he has a buyer at the 6800, to see what kinda deal they could work for me. He said something about an "in and out" sale. Where he trades in the bike and then they turn around and sale it to me at 6800. Have any of yall heard of something like that, or are they taking me for a ride?

that doesnt happen here in houston with motorcycles since riding season is all year long. maybe up north where they have to winterize their bikes but here prices usually remain the same, IF they havent sold out. they usually are low on inventory near fall, which means a set price that they wont budge on.

if you buy it from the dealer with this deal be sure you dont have to pay tax, title, and registration. that price might just be the sale price. get the 05 zx6r since it is very comfortable and has alot more options than the R6 like wave rotors, under seat exhaust, etc.

i think syd (outlawDcustoms) bougt his bike with a "in and out" sale but supposedly he has friends at yamaha and just happen to be there when the opportunity arose.

Re: 2005 R6 or 636?

Definitely the 636, great bike, nothing wrong woth the R6, good bike also just the 636 is much more versatile IMO.
Typically the advertised price is less TT&L, so take that into consideration. BTW the DMV has been cracking down pretty hard on the "I bought an '04 600 for $500.00. The loss in tax revenue is their incentive and there have been some pretty stiff fines levied. Just a caution.
If you're buying the bike from an individual make sure it has a clean title in his name with no liens on it. In order to transfer the title you'll need a title transfer 130U sheet signed by both of you and proof of insurance. Make sure he signs both the front and rear of the title and make sure the VIN matches the title.
If you're not wanting to deal with the title transfer, SuzAnne is a notary and has a title transfer license, she can handle it all for you for $50.00 plus the taxes and registration fee.

Re: 2005 R6 or 636?

Thanks for the help guys. I went and looked at the bike tday at wild west honda. He was trying to trade it in today but there was some kind of money delay at kawasaki so we have to wait until wed or thur. The guy im gettin the bike from said he will call me when he goes up there and we will both go in there at the same time he said that would save everyone some paper work. The dealership is going to do the title transfer for me. The dealership said I will have to pay TT&L when I get the bike. Anyone have a clue on how much that will cost? I need to know how much to get from the bank.

Re: 2005 R6 or 636?

for a car its usually 6.25% tax. plus fees like tittle about $50 and other misc. fees, so another $40.

so about $7315 IF the taxes are 6.25%. they usually are 8.25% in Texas.


ITS NOT A GOOD DEAL! i bought my 04 around this time last year for $7900 out the door. 0 mile, warranty, and 3.9% interest for 36 months. j14 bought his for $8400 OTD when it first came out. he bought the first one in houston when the truck dropped all of them off the same day to the dealers.

both bikes purchased at Pasadena Kawasaki. javier bought his in january. we were calling all dealers for about two months every week to see and the 05's finally came in and they did on the same day everywhere. everyone was trying to receive the 05's after the fiscal year to avoid paying inventory taxes.

Re: 2005 R6 or 636?

Thats about what I was thinkin. I am getin the loan from wamu and it a personal loan. is was thinkon of getin $7600 so I can go ahead and get my stababilizer and a few other things. Or do yall think that is a bad idea? Im not planing on going crazy with the money I just think the stababilizer would be a good thing to have.

Re: 2005 R6 or 636?

what interest rate will the loan be and how long is it for from WAMU? kawasaki approves buyers fairly easy since they really dont check how much you make, just if you have good credit.

get a new 05 for around $8k OTD with a warranty and 0 miles. the stabilizer will run about $275 on kawifourms.com. with a personal loan from a bank, you may need full coverage. kawasaki doesnt require full coverage for a credit line under $10k.

Re: 2005 R6 or 636?

I agree with the ZX636 being the best bang for the buck this year. I picked up an 05 at the beginning of the year and it just makes me shake my head in disbelief of the performance compared to my 2000 model I had prior. I had a couple minor headshake issues to I installed a Hyperpro which works pretty sweet. I've never been a steering damper fan but now I'm a convert.
