I'm going to be getting back into racing this year, but I need to finally admit to myself that I just don't have the nerve to run my R6 at a truly competitive pace. I'd like to drop down a class or two, if someone is looking to move up, and keep it as close to a 1:1 trade as possible.

I'll post more specifics/pics if it seems like there's interest, but the gist is as follows:

2006 R6
~24k miles
Ractech front forks
Racetech rear shock
Race fairings, forget the brand, but rest assured, they're ugly.
BMC filter
Power Commander V
Custom exhaust (stock headers gutted, y-pipe, m4 megaphone)
Clip-ons, case covers, levers, yada yada. It just needs an oil change and will be good to go.

Most of these bikes are going for between $4-5k set up like this.

What I'm looking for is a similarly prepped ultralight or lightweight supersport.

Thanks!!

Wow. Are people just having too much fun on their UL/L bikes, or is the 06 R6 just not as popular anymore?

The 08+ is the more desirable R6 for a number of reasons.

Happy to see you are getting after it again my friend! I daydream of going back to racing in a lighter weight class too, but for now I am spending every Summer weekend coaching my kids mountain bike team for at least the next 4 years.

Think about parting out your R6 if you want max $$, It is a lot of work, but you will get at least 2x as much. I parted out my 2006 Daytona a couple years ago after I crashed the shit out of it a couple times and then blew the motor. I still cleared $6,500 for the parts that were not wrecked.

Wow, totally worth the effort!

Taking it apart is easy. Especially knowing you don't have to put it back together. Shipping would be annoying though.

Hey man, good to hear from you!!

It's not really about the money, especially considering there's nothing wrong with it and it's completely race ready. I know I'd have no problem selling it high enough to nab a lightweight bike and still have spare change, I was just thinking it would be more beneficial for me and someone else looking to move up a class. Not having to deal with the whole buying/selling process twice.
