how much experience you have riding? First thing your gonna have to do is determine what fits inline with your skills and what you want to use it for.

How do you outgrow motocross? I'm 34 and I still love it!

Start off with a 600 or something like that. Or, just borrow your buddies bike until you get all of your learning and crashing out of the way, then buy your own bike

Than get an F4 or F3, stunt worthy and a solid performer.

High Noon 954 has a MINT CBR 954 for sale. It is very clean and they make awesome stunt bikes. I think he wants 6,900 and it has 12k miles on the clock. Its in the for sale section.

Seems alot of people on stuntlife are complaining about their gixxer motors letting go. Mine blew up a few weeks ago. If you want a solid stunter, do the F4i deal. Gixxers seem to like blowing up after a few wheelies, and mine liked to stall out during endos (talked to a few older gixxer people, and its more common than I thought, newer ones dont seem to have the problem though)

Ther are some notable gixxer stunters, though the Fx series of bikes are the hot ticket, especially if your into slow stuff. If money were no object i'd say F4i, if you ant cheap, reliable, and very stuntable, any Fx bike. I'm not suprised he wants a gixxer though, seems like the popular route nowadays for one reason or another.

Could it be an oil starvation problem when pulling a wheelie?

if wheelies are your goal w/ the gixxer, yes the oil pickup needs to be relocated and there is a simple part that todes this, same story on older 900RR's. Honestly, I'd take the rigidity, dependability, reliability, etc. of just about any honda if stunting was my goal w/ a bike.

yea, oil pickup is at the front of the motor, R6 and gixxers seem to need the oil pickup relocated to stunt well. You can pull it up and let it back down, but no long wheelies on em without that mod.

Still seems a few of em on stuntlife were complaining about blowing up motors even with the oil pickup mod though.

I haven't gotten any bites on my bike, and it averages for around $3k. With all the expensive stuff I've done to it it's hard to believe people aren't beating my door down to buy my bike for my asking prive of $2800. I'll probably put it on Ebay soon.

Billy, I am interested in your bike but don't have the funds at the moment. I didn't want to waste your time with making an inquiry but I have a 4-wheeler to sell first. If someone shows up with some money, I will be giving you a call.

You are not free whose liberty is won by the rigour of other, more righteous souls. Your are merely protected. Your freedom is parasitic, you suck the honourable man dry and offer nothing in return. You who have enjoyed freedom, who have done nothing to earn it, your time has come. This time you will stand alone and fight for yourselves. Now you will pay for your freedom in the currency of honest toil and human blood."
