how do you do it?

ive been debating on buying another track bike and putting my current gsxr back to street duty. but how do you figure out the value of a track bike?


example.....

1998 gsxr 750.


Nice SRAD currently set up for track use only but can be converted back to street with a few lights. All harnesses are intact. CLEAR title in hand. Current mileage is about 6500 miles but since there's only a tach on the bike, it's an estimate. There was 3000 miles on the bike when converted to track and it's been used for about 30-35 track days. Here's the cool stuff: race fairings have a nice custom paint job and have not been down; forks have been re-sprung by Race-Tech; new Fox Twin-Clicker shock and Eibach spring for 200lb rider (with gear) as well as original spring (170lbs); Akrapovic exhaust; engine work done by Hypercycle, custom map on Powercommander II, bike dyno'd at 128 RWHP this summer on race gas. That's as much HP as an '06 GSXR750!!! Also included are an extra set of fairings in good condition. Bike is completely safety wired and ready to go with Pirelli Supercorsa slicks with a couple track days still in them. Why take the chance of wrecking your new bike at the track and spending thousands on OEM plastic? This bike kicks ass on all 600's and most 750's. Also included is 10 gallons of race gas. ($10 per gal. at your local shop) Price dropped, must sell ASAP, already bought new bike. Make an offer!!!

Personally I'd try to go for something of a bit later model. There should be plenty of 03-05 bikes up for sale that are all race prepped and ready to go. Things like aftermarket shocks and forks set up for your weight are big things right from the get go that can get very expensive if you have to do them yourself. Great things to already have included for certain.



I personally don't care much for heaps of engine work.


Lots of spares with the deal are always a huge bonus, it's something I over looked initially but it's nice to have spare things that typically break in a crash. Extra set of rims are nice but not absolutely necessary.


Happy hunting, I'm sure where you are there are plenty of track bikes to pick from. lots of guys are always looking for the latest/greatest so a few year old bike should be easy to find.:cheers

exactly, if you plan on racing get something newer, and if you plan on doing trackdays get something with a stock motor so you dont end up having to do more than change the oil..im not positive but id imagine it takes quiet a bit of work to get that kind of power out of an 98, if you want to go for it make sure hes got dyno slips.. cheers and good luck finding one

At least up here ( BC ), track bikes are pretty cheap. Lots of them are not streetable anymore but you can get a good condition '02 600 fully race prepped with space parts/plastics/etc for $4k CDN. Depends what you want to do, I guess. Personally, the 02-03 gixxers dont' fit me very well so I'm looking towards a k4 which are typically more expensive

+1 on getting a more modern bike. Atleast FI. I find 01-03 gixxer 600's for about 3-4k. I've seen an 05 r6 for 5k that was a race bike.

^wonder what the condition of the bike is in, such as the transmission and clutch. I had a friend who used an F4 as a race bike and he used the brakes so much that he warped his rotors... that has to be some serious heat build up to do that.

-wera bbs (on top right of screen)
-scroll down to bikes for sale.

Search for a week or two to see what the going rates can be. You can get a fully prepped 2002 gsxr 600 with tons of race spares for under $4k. There's a ready 2 race 2000 EX500 for $2000 right now which i'm seriously considering for smaller circuits.
