shopping for a track bike

so ive convinced myself i need to start club racing ive been told/read that you cheat yourself by starting out on a 1000 by not learing to carry speed through corners etc. so im shopping for a 600 to bang around for a year or 2. ive found a couple bikes that im looking at one is a 01 r6 2 complete race fairing sets with 21k and a clean title for 1450$ and an 08 zx6r with 3k a race fairing with damage and salvage title 2900$.

i like not spending money but the difference in suspension might sway me to double my investment

whats your thoughts? those that know...let me know

Get the 08 it will remain competitive for several more years to come. Plus it will likely be more reliable

Damn... I payed $3k for the 04 636 I just picked up. That 08 would have been a no brainer.
