Seriously, that is everything you will ever need. Besides new tires every other weekend.

Buy that!!!!

All that shit for less than a new bike.

You go racing and become national champion!

Raleigh NC isn't that far.

10 or 12 hour drive.

You don't want to buy a bike like that. Don't you want to touch, hear and look at the bike in person before you drop 4600 bucks on a bike that mite have a bent fucking frame and a blown motor?

Jeez Biggy..your budget on this keeps getting bigger and bigger!

I suggest the one you PM'd about, looks to be the best deal you've found so far. Close, fairly new, with some spares, decent price.

That actually might be a first.

Mike 7k for a track bike that you litterally have nothing to do on. That's a deal if I ever saw one. Plus it's only a couple years old. You ride it for a couple of years part it out and almost come out even

Not to mention, the bike is a bit overpriced. You're paying a lot for the extras. I see the bike being worth somewhere in the 5k range perhaps?

Sell some of the spares and make up some of the money

Ok the bike is worth lets say 5 or 5500.

At least 500 bucks for the spare wheels with rotors

Rain tires are 350

You're already approaching the 7 grand mark.

Spare rims are a necessity.

Couple things. As peaceduke and I discussed. I'd like a bit that I wouldn't care that much about dropping. And that bike I'd care a bit more. I don't really need the rims because I'd probably simply pass on a track day if it's pouring the whole day. Also, don't need rain tires because I'm probably going to run regular Pilot Powers, which aren't bad for wet conditions either. I'm not racing...just going to do track days every couple weeks for fun. I just don't quite need that much bike in that price range. I need a nice little, ride for around 3k ideally.

Generally, track day riders don't need spare rims. Hell, I've got a set for the SV with rains, and I've used them TWICE in two years. And the last time I used them, I pretty much roasted my rains, even at a severly slowed down pace. Damn goofy BHF weather patterns!

Mike's $3K range should be able to get him a late 90s 600 track prepped and previously raced (and dropped).
