i'm trying to decide on prepping my 94 ZX7 for the track or buying a race only 600 for next year. i know my 7 is outdated & i will be limited on the classes i can run ,but for the money i can sell my 7 for i not willing to part with it (it's got high km & it's alittle rough around the the edges to look at). its still mechanically strong & with the amount of seat time i've had on the bike i feel very,very confident on it. next year will be my first year racing so i figure it doesn't really matter if the bike is super competitve as much as it matters that i'm comfortable on the bike i'm racing. here in lies my delema, to track the 7 i'm going to spent roughly $1500.00 getting it ready (race fairings , new race tech front springs, gearing, exhaust can repack, etc'). then depending on how quick i advance i maybe very limited to the classes i can run & have a non competitive bike or do i buy a 2 or 3 year old 600 for $5000.00 to 6000.00 & have a bike thats competitive in many classes but something i have to get used to? i'd love some feed back so feel free to give me sugestions.
