I would buy a bike already put together for racing. It will save you in the long run and it is also a little harder to find parts for your 04.

I'm with 969mike but not for the same reasons. I think you'd find parts just fine for your 04. But it sounds as you might have a fair amount of money invested in it and if you are going racing, it most likely/definately will hit the pavement. I'd look for a race or at least trackday prepped bike. Have you raced before? Some organizations won't let novices race 1000s, plus a 600 or even a 650 twin would be best to learn on. You can usually find pretty good deals on some of the racing forums for used bikes reasonably priced.
