@ Straight 6 : My budget depends. But the most ideal would be 3L. Since this would be my first SBK, I dont want to spend too much that I cannot afford to have an upgrade later. And if the paper work is clean, then its worth the deal. ZX-6R,CBR 600, Honda Hornet, FZ6, Gixer....this would be the ideal list.

Are you looking for the Roadtec Z6 or the Sportec M3? 120/70 and 180/55 right?

I know of a nice '98 gixxer 600 with clean papers and its supposed to be with its second owner right now. its in Bombay and an MH-02 reg. You should be able to pick that up for 3.5L.

I don't know if they sell separates. They should. There is a dealer here in Bombay that sells tyres. Manson had bought his tyres from him. I think it should be around 8-9K.

@ Straight 6 : Thanks for the quick reply. Now let me trust you on this... Since you say it is a nice one, I believe I can it take it for granted that its engine is in pretty good shape and that you mean its worth the deal for that amount. Isn't it ? Do let me know

Manson should be able to give you that guys contact. He may not have this particular brand though.

P.S. - Do you have a sound clip of the Hornet on youtube?

Kunal, the Metzelers are going to be considerably more expensive than 8-9K for a rear. Thats the price for the Michelin/bridgestone/dunlop rubber.

Prabhu, i had picked up a set last year for the Ace for 15K, BT - 020, for the rear alone you are looking at some 8-9K that i mentioned above.

For the metzelers, i think poncho, or killer should be able to hook you up with a dealer down south. Killer was using mets on his R1 a while ago.

Revo, i suggest you jump the budget to 3.5-3.75, that would set you up for a nice mid or late 90's 600/750. Jumping the budget by 50K in the entry level space will surprised you with how many more options you have.
While getting yourself a sbk, spend all that you can, and try avoiding to save money.
These are long term assets, they do not sell overnight, so a few extra grand would probably get you a cleaner bike with better papers than you having saved money and ending up at your local mech to sort out wiring issues every other weekend.

A clean cbr 600 f3, say 97 spec around the 3.5L mark should be your best bet, they were virtually trouble free, comfortable, smooth, were not a handful through the traffic, and spares are available pretty much all over.

@ mason :- I do agree. Then maybe I will have to wait for a few more months. I dont want to go for a complete loan you know. I want to pay ready cash as much as possible and may be take a little portion of loan.

Meanwhile, if in case, if at all I get lucky, and you people come across something do let me know. I am sure you guys would know this better.

The only reason I kept a tab on 3L is becoz, since there is a lot of SBKs' to be released, I thought its good that I try getting that cheap. Coz if its about stretching a little bit more, may be, for e.g., KTM duke might be available for 6.5 lakhs which would be brand new. But then, I should get lucky for these figures

From what i have figured being around the sbk scene, 3L isnt a sufficient budget for a clean, not too old 600, 3.5 is what will get you one, so ideally i'd try and have a tab of 3.75 instead keeping my option open to something exceptionally clean.
And, have a slightly higher budget than the requirement even aids negotiating the price, esecially if you are buying from someone who likes to swap bikes regularly.

According to my friend who is a colleague of the owner, the bike is with its second parsi owner and they are both around their 50's. In the last 6 years the bike has been with those two. He says, the bike has 3.5L of duty paid. The owner is asking for 4L but he should give it for around 3.5L if you are really serious.

I have seen the picture of the bike on my friends phone. I intend to go and see that bike personally sometime soon. Here's a picture I took off the net. Its identical to this except, its got a Yoshimura exhaust.
