07 Kawasaki ZX-6R Track
05 CBR 600RR Track

Another comparison - 04 Kawi ZX-6R vs 05 GSXR 750

I have two bikes I am looking at. Each offers its own attributes.

Here are some details:


04 Kawi ZX-6R
No title, bill of sale only.
Much further than Gixxer
a few hundred cheaper than the Gixxer.
Listed as OBO.
Power Commander IIIusb
Full Exhaust system
BMC air filter
NRC Covers
Slipper clutch <<<-----
Front and Rear Braided Lines
Race Pads
Gearing includes 1 down in the front and 2 up in the Rear
Triple Penske on the Rear
Race Tech fork internals (.95 springs)
Transmission has back cut gears, new shift forks, and shift star.
Set for rider about 200lbs (I am about 220-230)


05 GSXR-750
Much closer than Kawi bike
few hundred more expensive.
No title, bill of sale only.
Akrapovic exhaust
custom paint job ( UGLY THOUGH IMO)
clip ons
vortex rearsets
PC (tuned)
dynoed at 134 rwhp

So as you see each has something good to offer.
Not just looking for raw power, but for fun in the riding, and having good track tool to use/keep growing on.
I am trying to get an opinion from those who have ridden them, to see what the general consensus would be. I hope to decide soon (this bike chit is driving me nuts).

2006 GSXR 600

question: if you go the kawi route, what happens when you are ready to sell it being that there is not a title? will that effect the resale later?

The gixxer has crazy power for a 750- you can run with most liter bikes with it (I have done it with an '05 GSXR 750).

Slipper clutches are the shiznit, but your clutches will wear faster too.

I'd get the Gixxer and buy a slipper clutch for it if you want one that badly- they're about $800 and adjustable whereas the stock Kaw slipper is not.

PM me a link for both bikes, I'm not buying, so I won't try to buy it out from under you. I'm curious as to the bikes you're looking at so I can make a better decision. Possibly knowing the bike would help me make a suggestion to you.
I am Tyler Durdin's bad attitude.
