I wonder if the parts on mine have been sold yet. My 2006 GSX-R was stolen 4 weeks ago, I'm guessing it is now on a far away race track with the plastics and other useless race track accessories up for sale on ebay. I've owned a 2004 Monster S4R before that and traded it in for the gixxer because of maintenance costs and the type of riding I do (I basically beat the hell out of my bike in the mountains every chance I get), I have to say I was faster in the mountains on the gixxer then I was the Monster, but I could have made some basic modifications to the S4R that would have really helped. The main thing the gixxer had going for it that made me go faster was it's weight and the confidence it gave me. I could simply flick it from side-to-side faster, and the built-in steering damner really helped with the head shake. However I missed the engine from the Duc. The low end torque is really helpful for mountain riding, which is why I will probably switch back to a Ducati. However I will most likely get a sports classic 1000, or a used 999/749, or the new 1098/748. As I learned from the S4R there are just too many changes I have to make with a monster to make it right for me, and the price adds up quick. I'd probably get an S2R1000, then I'd have to buy a $1300 arrow exhaust (I hate the exhaust canister under the engine), then I'd have to buy a $300 set of clip ons, then I'd need a $400 Steering damner, and a $100 fender eliminator. While I love the way the monsters look, that's just too much money to sink into it basically just to turn it into a naked super bike.slowpoke13 said:Hell, you can buy gixxer pieces on amazon.
