Gonna get into racing.. Need some advise

Hi All (especially @Anthony D )

I need some advise. Gonna start looking for a race bike to start racing.

Unfortunately will need to sell my k5 1000 to fund the project.

Looking at 600 4 cylinder bikes or preferably the 650 twins like SV650 or the Kawasaki option. I'm intrigued due to the lack of power and the videos I've watched are awesome with rider skill really becoming important.

Any advise on what to look for?

Buy a fully prepped bike and you will save tons of money.

Look here: Bikes for Sale | 13x Forums

That is a great resource for race bikes.

Edit: Shit, my bad, forgot you were in S.A.!!!

What you need to do is figure out the rules of the race org you are gonna be riding with.

Can you post a link to it?
