Postby itln650r » Sat Oct 17, 2009 12:32 am

hey guys since the 650 is gone im never on here anymore but a pm notification made me think of yall. so hows everyone doing in here?? i got the job i needed to get my new bike and im well on my way. HOPEFULLY sometime in jan. ill be the proud owner of an 09 monster zx6. still havent given up total hope on the 675, well see how prices sit when the 2010's are on the showroom floors. ive been dieing to ride something since the last time i was able to ride was about 3 months ago. so while i was in daytona for the womans sisters wedding i rented this Image anyways thats what ive been up to for anyone who cares.

was in my roomates name, we originally bought it and paid half the payments, i ended up paying the full payments and riding it daily, plan was for me to take over the payments with my bank when i got a full time job, he moved back to ga after uti, and called to ask if he could have it back, i thought with 13k on it, wrecked twice, and still owe 8k (we got raped) id let him take it and i could get what i wanted when i was settled in a job and whatnot.

If you really want the Daytona get it. Even if it means waiting a little longer. The ZX-6r will fit the bill but a Daytona it ain't.

A month ago I was looking at the Daytona, Duc 848 and also toyed with the idea of an ZX-6r (because I coud get it the cheapest). In the end I bought what I wanted (Duc 848) because nothing else would have filled the void although the Daytona was close.

If you get anything other than the what you really want you will not be satified and most likely sell at a loss it in a year or so to buy the 675. I say get the 675, it has style and grace like the Duc. They stand out in the crowd and are not typical cookie cutter "Big 4" that in four years nobody wants.

Love that scooter pic. Got a similar one of me in Ibiza, Spain on a scooter - after riding a 650R on the streets of NYC for a year, a scooter in flip flops and shorts was cake.

Anyway, please make sure the police get a rape kit done on you guys to put whoever got you your financing in jail. And remember - a savings account and Craigslist next time!

Get the 675. The 2010s are already out, at least here. You could also get some good deals on one on Craigslist if you wanna go that route. However, I am impressed with the new zx-6. It's the first time I'd actually consider owning one.

Ya, I hear ya. First things first.

The local Triumph dealer has had a 2010 SE white and blue bike in their showroom for 2 or 3 months now. That's one sweet lookin' bike. They had a black one too the last time I was in there. I love those Daytonas :drool

new update. so, a lot of things have changed in my life since the last time i was on here, got a decent job, moved out to my own place with my g/f. finally got around to getting a bike....a 450$ 2003 katana 600. it turned out to be a fun, irritating project. heres a quick rundown of the project from bringing it home till now.
the way i bought it:
Image
rough mockup of the 02 gixxer tail:
Image
BIG jump with parts and paint:
Image
and its current status right now:
Image
its still got a little work to do. and i just recently got the opportunity to get another project with MUCH less work than this one for 600$ its a 1997 honda 900RR. so well see what will come of that. just wanted to hop back on and see what everyones up to. i might start frequenting this forum again, when my lease is up and i get a new place with a garage i WILL be getting a 636 or zx10.

lol no 2 wheels on the ground at all times. plus i think this pile is slower than the 650. im hoping to get a jet kit and afr sorted out sometime soon. its supposed to have 85hp stock, so it should add a ton of power after its done.

ya i did? im not using the stock cluster or anything. everything electrical is soldered and shrinkwraped. all the blinkers, headlights, tail lights, and indicator lights are spliced into, the tail isnt stock, its off a 2002 gixxer 600. im looking at different lcd gauges right now so thatll come soon.

and heres my rear blinkers http://s166.photobucket.com/albums/u85/S13DrIfTmEkAnIcS/katana/?action=view&current=101_0733.mp4

I just hate not ever being able to move backwards, ya know? I'd absolutely dread having to buy and reroute a new harness just to go back.

trailtech vapor or koso DB-01?

i still need to buy the Koso for my bike, but i havent messed with it in about a month. Its the last thing left.

let me know just how much of a PITA it is to get the speed sensor and all that crap installed.

trailtech vapor. says its supposed to be here tomorrow. i was going to go with the cheapest koso one. like 160 i think, but it looks a lot cheaper than the trailtech and 30$ more.

ps. ive kinda been missing my 650r lately. the kat suspension SUCKS big ones compared to the 650r.

koso DB-01R is about $150, and Im using that one because it has built in indicator lights for the dash. on the trailtech you have to buy that seperate $40 dash panel for lights.

you are definitely the first person I have ever heard who misses the 650R stock suspension :lol:
