Well im in a weird spot making a decision. Basically I lowsided awhile back on some dirt in a canyon. Messed up my beautiful paint job on the 600rr. I managed to repaint it myself (its alright, for being done at home) white again. Im debating selling it... or keeping it, repainting it again professionally, and doing a big tune up. It has 22k miles and needs a chain badly. If I were to sell it, id get around 4500-4800 for it, and since i do a lot of communting been considering an 04 R1. (just for the extra grunt down low and i can be lazy with the gearing) However I know I'm going to miss the way my 600rr handled, specially on the track. But the reality is 98% of my riding is commuting and canyon riding on weekends. If I keep the bike, i'll want to 1. Repaint it professionally. (500-700$) 2. Get new frame sliders ($60) 3. New Chain and sprockets (-1 +2) ($180) 4. Get my valves done. (???) If I get an R1, ill have to put another 1000-1500 on top of the proceeds from my bike + taxes. Insurance is only 100$ more a year so no biggie Question is, with 22k miles on it is it worth doing all that work to it? If I did that, i'll keep it around another 2 years or so, and make it a track bike when it comes time to upgrade after college. Thoughts? I don't wanna pickup another 600 because i dont like the look of other 600's that much, and picking up another 05-06 600rr would be kind of stupid.
