Hey guys, I am in the market for a new bike and have to choose between a used 2005 zx 636 and a new 2009 zx-6.
The used 636 only has 4000km on it with not even a scratch, also has yoshi exhaust tinted windscreen integrated turn signals etc etc...
just wondering everyone's thoughts. I like to know pros and cons....comparison from looks to performance and everything in between.
I have already chosen in my mind i think, but want to see if anyone has insight i may have overlooked. Thanks guys.

One thing: 636 is great for a street rider, as per it's design. The ZX-6R is great for the race track, as per it's design. The 636 is a ZX-6R with bigger heads, and cams designed for a wider, more usable (although slightly less powerful) power band.

Personally, I'd go with the ZX-6R, cause I like having to rap an engine to get to the goods, but I'd hate it in traffic... :)

is the 636 the B1H or the C1H. the b1h is very very focused and aggresive! its not for the faint hearted ive ridden one myself.

thats because it most likely is felix!, that is the C1H the 636 version, it has been the fastest standard 600 since it was made.

sweet bike! i thought about one of those at one point

what does the c1h mean?? and the bike comes with all stock parts so i could put the original exhaust back on. sell the yoshi and buy something better.

C1H is the model, so its the C model, and the 1h is the 636 instead of 600, a 600 would just be a C model

also when it comes to the exhaust he told me it was just a slip on because he didn't want to fool with the power commander. So even though its ugly he couldn't have fooled anything up right?? It's just a matter of taking it off and replacing it with the stock. I realize the angle looks weird but if it went at the seats angle it would block the tail light. maybe its too long or something, maybe its suppose to be like that ?? I bet it sounds awesome...LOL.
