Okay...I've been researching R6s for a little while now and I've narrowed it down to ONE last problem:

What freakin year am I going to purchase??

I want something I can put a lot of aftermarket parts on, but Im not looking to race or anything like that.

I like 2003 so far...but the oldest I'll get is 2k1. Looking to spend no more than 4k.

I found a 2k3 for 1,800 and almost screamed like Elmira from "Tiny Toon Adventures" (Remember that???) when she saw a cute lil animal.

So thats what Im going with so far. Point me in the right direction, R6ers!

A good 2003 still goes for around 5k, by good I mean perfect and low mileage.
lol...the minor scratches from the bike falling on the garage kind of bike

You'll like the 03. It's basically what I have (08 R6S). It is a great handling bike with great power and all that other great stuff. I just came over from the dark side (Suzuki) and I'm quite content with the Yamaha.

the s is the non racing version. you have probably mostly been seeing the race ready r6.
Is there a noticable difference in between the two? How can I tell?

<3 my '03 R6. Used to ride a CBR, but I'm absolutely in love with my new baby.

I got a pretty solid deal, she doesn't appear to have ever been dumped and she only had 1500 miles. $4775, and all that she absolutely NEEDED was new tires (the ones on it were hard and just concerned me in terms of safety). I found mine on Craigslist, I searched for a couple months and finally got lucky. Couldn't be happier, I have ridden her every single day since I brought her home (except for last night cuz it was raining).
