Well, I've got a 2002 that is in kind of rough shape cosmetically. I'm planning on buying a CBR1K this coming Spring and wanted to redo my RC51 as a winter project. Next season I plan on getting in on track days and was shopping around for a cheap track 600 (R6/CBR6) and thought maybe I should just turn my RC51 into a track bike. How many of you have tracked out your RC51s and can give me a first hand account of comparing it to running a 600 on the track? More or less I want a track bike that can help nurture me on my path to getting faster.
