I have read through the threads and still need some guidence. I am currently on my L's but going for my R-Date in July, My current bike has trashed it's motor, due to both carburettors leaning out because of some junk in the fuel line. :? That sudden bit of extra power was a bit wierd, I knew it was accelerating harder then before . Anyway, I am currently looking at replacement bikes as its not worth repairing the motor of my old bike. Theres a nice hole in the bore. There is an FZR600 for sale near me, that i have always wanted Now i know the FZR600 is no where near legal for an L-Plater but if i am going to spend the money I need to get something i can ride for a long time after i get off my R-Date. Is it possible in SA to by the FZR and place a restrictor or something on the bike to lower output power to make it R-Date compliant. I am 6,5" with size 14feet, 94kg's, and need a bike that will fit my dimensions and not struggle up in the hills like my 250 did. What sort of sportsbikes would you suggest tall people will fit on comfortably that are in a $7,000 budget range. I want a bike that doesn't look like and feel like a pocket bike when i ride it.
