Suzuki switch to Yamaha

Been racing them there sportbikes for some years on Suzuki 600's and I think it's time to switch to R6's Next year Ill be on them yamies got the #1 plate for 2015 BTW

Comments? Crashed R6's

My intention is to purchase a 2014 used bike and build it up

suspension
engine
magnum wheel (for superbike build)

Anyone know of a crashed bike? I want to keep it to 2014 so to be in with contingency monies

I may keep my Suzuki for Supersport races until I can afford another R6

Anyone notice the new Yamaha shop that opened downtown Chicago on Randolph?

Why don't you buy an ex-AMA bike from 2014 or a used Graves bike? Probably cheaper than building up a bike. My 09 had 1200 on the speedo, no seat, tank, bodywork for $1800 in Oh. i've got maybe $2500 into suspension, blew two motors (so that doesn't count), steel lines, cheap aftermarket slip on with 05 header, vortex clipons rearsets, reflashed ecu with dynojet PC V and quickshifter setup.

I purchased EX Vesrha bikes for years. 15,000 each. I would look for a 2014 Yamaha but haven't seen one for under 14,000.00


I have all my Suzuki 600's for sale. Ill try to post em complete with photos ect on this site for sale someplace.
