thought the 07 and 08 are pretty much the same?

i would use the 07 as a track bike and the 08 as street.

just cuz the 08 is newer.

hear is the deal
i have a 08 that has been droped at a very low speed. has a few minor scratches but needs a new sub frame and kick stand. it has 80 miles on it. i was looking at a local dealership cause i liked the way the 07 white and the blue ones look and i can take it in and trade it for a bike with higher miles but in better shape. and i jsut dont know what to do. i wanna get more into racing.

If your to get into racing, you won't be using OEM fairings anyway for long, so paint color is immaterial, I'd say its a wash, if the 07 has under 6k miles, I'd do it. of course, that all depends on what they want for a trade in.

The 08 would be better since it can turn faster...by .2*!
They're pretty much exactly the same, so they'll both make a damn good track bike. If you already have an 08 that just needs some work, turn that into a track whore. You're already halfway there with needing new parts for it.

ur's doesn't sound in that horrible of shape. if ur gonna track/race it who cares what the street fairings look like(the 07 white/blue). besides you don't know how much damage the previous owner put on a used one. if ur's only has 80 miles, i'd fix the small damage and track/race that one.

Proper Crash Kit ( frame,fork, bar end, sliders)
Race Fairings of a decent quality.
Your own gear (suit,gloves ,boots of a HIGH quality.)
$$$ for proper track classes.


After that, the basics, Tires, exhaust, BAzzaz, Tune.

Sliders, track skins, rear sets, brake lines and pads, and tires. That's about all that's really needed to turn an 08 into a good track bike.
