      would make a good track bike 'great front end'

      kawasaki zx7r
      Ive always liked kawasakis because of there engine note and there intake roar i cant believe how good they sound with a standard can you don't need to buy a race can so that will save you a few quid and points on your license lol. although i feel its lacking abit in acceleration. or it might be because the bikes power delivery is so smooth. but this is one of the best handling bikes ive owned and ive had a far few to say im only 23. ive had the footpegs scraping a few times so that proves it does. the chassis is very responsive. it does what you want it to do straightaway. ive heard a few people saying that the brakes aren't that good but i cant fault them mine are brilliant very responsive. the only thing you need to watch out for is the carbs icing in the winter and the standard down pipes corroding.

      good bike not for the faint hearted

      yamaha yzf r1 1999 model
      my r1 is like a pukka track bike and im still trying 2 get my head around its proformance. its a complete rocketship ive owned a 2003 fuel injected r1 but it dident feel as fast. the power delivery was to smooth compared 2 my 1999 model what is a rocketship. ive seen 174 on the clock only on a trackday tho.the only thing that seems to let it down is the pillion comfort. my girlfriend dosent like 2 ride pillion because she says its 2 high up its like sitting on someone's shoulders but you dont buy a r1 if you want to go touring and carring passanges. in my opion its a toy for the weekends and trackdays the other thing is the exup valve has got stuck a few times and stopped working resulting in loss of power in the midrange you can tell if the power valve has stopped working if you hear a clicking noise when you turn the egnition on. i phoned a yamaha dealer up and they said dont panic and told me its a fault on the early r1's you just need to strip them down a keep them clean.
