I have rode a 636 before and yes I have heard of the transmission issues just dont by an entry level year.. but I will tell you a 636 is the only thing that will give a 750 a run besides of course the 1000's.. If you can find a good deal try out a 750 I have had a gsxr 600 and a 750 and the weight is very similar and there is enough power difference to tell your on a bigger bike.... good luck man!!

i can give a few literbikes and 750's a run for their money on my 600....on the track, it's mainly about the rider, and not so much the bike.....only when you reach someone of the same skill level is when cc's make the difference.

the 636 does have that extra edge....but not by a landslide. the 2008 r6 is probably faster than the 636
