Track Only Bike

I have been thinking about getting a "track only" bike so I don't have to worry about screwing up my cherry 10R on trackdays. I have been doing alot of research and looks like you can buy a decent track bike for 3000-5000. Like fully prepped SV650s, Ninja 650s, and other 600s. Jake Holden's 2004 GSXR 1000 is for sale at a shop nearby for a great deal. A local tuner is building a crashed 04 R6 up for 4-5K. Any suggestions? Any of you have dedicated track bikes?

i'm thinkin about doin the same thing. i'm lookin for a 03-04 zx-6RR (05-06 would work to), so it has the slipper clutch. after riding with one on the 10r, i dont want to be without it! the honda 600rr is also a great handling bike.

The track only bike is great if you can afford it. No compromise when doing set up on suspension, gearing and buying parts are much more fun. I'd suggest going with something sorted. The track time is expensive trying to get the bike working. I'd go for a winning bike so you can focus on riding and fine tuning rather than trying to find the ballpark.

What about an '04 10R, mild mods and a set of race plastics for $6k?
