good stunt bike?

since i have some cash built up (roughly 6000$) im almost 16 yrs old and i want to get into stunting a street bike, if you dont know my background i race motocross in the 250 A class or commonly refered to as local Pro on my 2005 yz450f. im looking to buy a used bike preferbally a liter bike and i want it to be very common bike for replacement parts and such, as to my dropping it a lot, i know ill need frame slides and all that but whats a good bike...
something like a 2001 cbr 954rr or a gsxr 600 04' mostly wheeling and doing stoppies not the 180mph runs. maby a 150 or so but no more than that.
whats the weight on a bike, the both of them, does light weight make that much difference?

If you are looking for a bike that you can find parts a dime a dozen...go with a GSX-R.

im no pro, but i dont think a 600 will give you what you want. Too much work. I say 750 because its just as light with more power.

They are the heavier of the bunch though. But not by much.

so looks like a cbr 954 is good or a 929rr?

will a 600 power wheelie above 60mph if in the best gear...


i sat on a 2005 gsxr 600 today @ the bike shop and man i think that bike is perfect in ergos and looks, im gonna get a hotbodies undertail exhaust on any bike i get and maby a power commander thing and that it 4 performance and i just want a fast bike with some stunting capabilities, i plan on having 2 bikes. perhaps a 750 would be right for me?

Money??? Whats that???
You defiantly need at least two bikes if you plan on stunting one. Broken parts and down time are the norm for a stunter.

Submit your ride for the TWF Bike of the Month here


Currently ride 1987 GSXR 50, 1996 Ducati M900, 2005 GSXR 1000

Not too mention most stunt bikes shouldn't even be on the open road!
