1. R6. Best Chassis with a good motor. 06-07 you need to keep fairly fresh bearings in them or they'll eat the crank. Replace them every year and a half or so should be good for most. 08 and up you can go a bit longer. Pipe, Power Commander and U4 and it's got competitive HP.
2. CBR. Competitive power fairly easy, good chassis, but parts are more expensive. Pipe, PC, U4 and it's got the power.
3. Kawasaki. Easy but not cheap to get competitive horsepower. 07-08 model still competitive as long as the motor is fresh. Needs Kawasaki kit ECU and harness, plus power commander and pipe to get competitive HP.
4. Suzuki. Chassis is good enough, not quite as much feel as the R6 though. Biggest problem is getting competitive horsepower and staying reliable and legal for supersport classes from what I've heard.

I personally love the R6, especially on the track... Coming from two GSXR's... Course the R6 is the first bike I've ever had on the track. Just got the ECU flashed and a few other goodies too, so this thing should RIP this weekend!

So, Kevin Edgington's 07 Kawasaki 600 made 119.2 on the ESP dyno. It had a head gasket, kit ecu, pipe and power commander. On pump gas it made 114 iirc. Still fast for a dependable 600. The R6 and Honda are pretty close to those same numbers, the Suzuki is about 8hp lower from what I'm told.
Do not be afraid of the 07-08 Kawi's. The 09, people had alot of trouble getting the front end sorted with the big piston forks.

Race tech springs, k&n filted, i hack sawed the cat out and welded in a strait pipe with a slip on, and changed the gearing.....thats the only crap ive done to mine, And i beat the hell out of it, and granted i buy the most expensive Repsol oil i can find and i keep up on maintenance. Im pretty happy with it. Actually i think maggie gets jealous because i love my jap girl TOO much lol. (But if it was me, leif, get a r6 people go fast on those things pretty easy)
