    Not sure they are quite as rare as the man says, I think there were 45 sold in the UK, out of 461 made altogether. A really nice one sold on here a couple of months ago for 4K.

    Radials were standard. They have a special eprom, conrods and airbox. Should have regular pipe and chip with it too.

    I am ashamed to say .. no.
    3500 would get me a truly mint 03 model, I couldnt possibly justify 5k on essentially the same thing. especially as having something rare then throwing tonnes of miles on it is a shame.. equally, having something so good to ride, then sticking it in a glass box is sacrilidge . i'll just wash my hands of it and let it be a problem for someone else lol

    Yes, my thoughts too. A lot of extra money for a bike that's only really marginally better than a standard 2003 rsvr. At 4K I'd be tempted.

    I'm usually buying bikes for friends in november at the lower prices, often make money selling 18months later.. at least break even.

    Thing is, I dont want to miss another summer just because I hate my current bike now...

    Skullface is one of my best friends. He's here looking for an RSV because of me after I changed his mind from a GSXR1000.

    So, he knows.

    Yes, I'd worked most of that out already...hence my comment that a ZX6R is not going to help.

    As much as Phil deserves a kick in his kwak.. its actually part of why I know I need a change.. the ZZR600 I have now can keep up with those ZX6r-s happily.. but its so damn different to ride, have to wrestle it about.. though to give it fair dues.. it does go well once pushed. I rode his 6r, and only a G model.. and it was night and day difference. Thing is I'm sick of it. Want a bike like a new puppy, desperate to do anything to please me and skitish as feck.

    ohh... and would be nice to get back to a place where I was scared of abusing the throttle.. tried all sorts of 6's and always spend far too much time at WOT for my liking.
