What would you guys recommend, I'm kind of stuck on what woud be the better choice.
the 10R is $950 more than the gsxr750 according to msrp, of course

I would get the 10 if those are the only two you are considering. why didn't you look at the cbr1000rr for 2008?

Thanks for the comments guys, I'm definately happy with it. Tons of power all over from what I've felt so far, feels alot more nimble than I expected it to be, I'll let you guys know how I feel about it after break-in. I'm still deciding if I want to drop cash for the Akra or if I should just go for the M4 which I also like. I'll take some better pics once the fender is off and everything is neat and tidy.

I've come to the conclusion that the Ohlins dampener that comes with it is a POS. The bike is crazy fast and the handling is good, ALTHOUGH it feels like you're gonna go into a tank slapper once your around the 150 ballpark.

that's always one of the first things a 10 owner reports! hahahahaha

I went with a Scotts, a lot of guys use GPR, in my opinion on the 10R a radial damper is the way to go

i preferred the aftermarket ohlins R&T linear damper i had on my old 10R. the factory damper works much better after you put some thicker weight oil in it.

that's only if you have the ability to get all the air out (which is virtually impossible without the appropriate vacuum equipment), and you don't mess anything up while doing it........the factory damper actually has no valving, so it's not much of a damper, really..........the aftermarket linear ohlins are the sh*t! but for the money I'd rather have a radial.......

Scotts FTW!
