Re: Looking at buying 05 for track
1. R6s in general are good trackbikes, regardless of year IMO
2. Don't need too many engine mods as a new track rider. I would focus on suspension, and handling. Good grips, levers, damper, etc.
3. From what I've seen it's kinda of a love-hate relationship. You'll love modding it and racing it, but you'll hate how you're gonna spend all your money on it. That first time you add up all you've spent on a track day/bike can be a shocker .
If I were building a newer track bike (I'm going almost full track bike on my 2002), I'd go for the 2006 over the 2005 personally. 7 more HP and a slipper clutch.
