ok everyone i have decided to get the 05 zx10r, now it is just a matter of who has the best deal, if i can save enough i would even go to an 04. If anyone knows of where i can get a good deal around NC please let me know, the Kaw dealership here (wilmington) is a bit of a rip off. They want the whole MSRP price, the only thing they offer is three sets of tires for the bike. But i don't really care about that, i want a good out-the-door price, and/or good finance rates. Please let me know what offers your local dealers are offering. I have tried to look up some NC dealers on the net, but not coming up with much, I do know that Charlotte and Raleigh area dealers have some good deals sometimes, just because of the volume that they sell. Please any help would be awesome!

The sets of tires aren't that bad of a deal. That thing will go through a set of tires like butter :) . I hear people say good things about the KAW place here in Durham off of Highway 70. I don't know about that first hand though.

the tires are a nice bonus, but the difference in o.t.d. price between this place and at least one other that i have found is like $1500-$2000, and that is quite a bit as far as financing one goes

Don,t forget brewer cycles in henderson-252-492-8553.
Ask for david grissom and tell him kevin told you to call him-sales men are cut thrroat but it all comes down to what the owner will let them do.
I have worked for the place in durham and I have worked for Brewers and I have heard alot about Matisons-all bad about their service dept.
Hope someone gives you a good deal!

i dont know you, dont know shit about you blue. I'm NOT trying to start a dumb online shit talkn session. It sounds like you want a big CC bike for bragging rights and to show off. Is that true? I mean really, what can the 1000 do that the 600 cant besides hike up insurance?

id go with a 636 but thats my personal plan for the future. 01 and higher.

1000cc = Easier power. Easier Wheelies. Less shifting. Less people to race on track for club racing (600 is the most flooded series). Less money to make competitive. Only a few lbs more. More fun. Same cost to repair.

In conclusion, my book report shows that 1000cc bikes can do quite a few things 600cc bikes don't.

Not all riders are n00bLOLOMGLMFAO's... If he gets hurt on it because it's too much, then we can make fun of him. At least I know I will.

In a test for Cycle World the Yamaha R6, ran a [email protected], backed up by a [email protected] 600's are plenty fast, at least the new ones are. If you want the low end torque to twist up an easy wheelie, just get a power commander, if you have an older carbureted 600 bike like mine, you can pick up Ivan's jet kit for less that 200 bucks - a far cheaper alternative than paying for an extra 400 cc's plus and the iinsurance punishment it brings.

Ummmm.... Is that a stock 600? 'Cause if you're going to sit there and tell me it was and it did the quarter mile as fast as pretty much every 05 Liter Bike tested by just about every magazine on the planet with the same results (9.9x seconds) - I'm going to call you clinically insane.

Scan it and post it or give the issue #. And then do a google search. Actually I'll do it for you (some older, but the R6 Engine hasn't changed all that much in past 3 years besides a few more Revs and a few more HP)

See what I'm hinting at?

And no amount of technowizardry will replace cubic inches as you make it sound. Tell you what, why don't you slap together an R6 with undertail pipes, and your Pixie Dusted Power Commander, and blind test it against an actual R1 with someone who knows how to actually.... Ride. I'll bet 2 cases of beer that even a gimpy rider can tell the differences.

I don't get it. Why is it that everyone tries to talk someone out of getting a liter bike.

He had a 750, now he wants a 1000. SO WHAT.

exactly my point, i just want to step up, i started on a 99 zx6r, about a year and a half later went to the zx7r, and now i want the zx10r, has nothing to do with bragging rights or any of that other shit. if was about bragging rights i would be getting a hayabusa, then talking about putting turbo on it. but nope, no busa here i want the zx10r mostly because kawasaki quit making the zx7r and if they still did i would probably get it, but they don't. so the next step up in kawi's lineup is the 10r. I just really like that bike and everything about it. Like Tragik said i had a 750 why would i step down. power commanders add hp, but not as much torque, the only way to get that much more torque is to go up in CC's. when kawi introduced the zx7r it was competing against liter bikes, so it had plenty of hp and torque (still not quite as much as the liter's). Hell I hardly even know anyone that rides around here, so what good would it do to get something to bragg about. I do have one friend that i ride with quite a bit, and he has an 05 zx636. I have riden his bike and it is not bad, it was kinda fun to ride but really it was just to high strung for me, and the low rpm acceleration is nothing compared to mine. i know mine was a 750 and his is 636, but his is an 05 and fuel injected, mine was a 98 and carbuerated, and mine was about 100lbs heavier, and i would still dust him. The point is I want the zx10r, because that is what i want.

Well Cycle World doesn't publish their articles online so I couldn't find crap at their website, Google wasn't much help (which is no surprise because google has been getting increasingly shittier as a search engine, but I haven't found a better search engine yet) however the guy who test rode the R6 at the 2005 Shootout was Rickey Gadson and he is online, you can read his comments about the test here....you'll just have to take his word for it. The bikes were stock but were apparently lowered a few inches.
