I have a opportunity to buy a 07 f6 lxr for a great price, but I have never rode the new style cats and I am used to riding a 02 zr 800. I was curious if anybody has any good input on the sled - Do they handle well? ride comfortable? is the power solid? reliable? any issues? any general info. would be nice. I planned on buying a 04 Rev if i didnt get this sled I have rode the rev chassis and really liked the ride.
No doubt you would love the ride. The rider forward positioning is an A++ compared to your zr. The f6 makes 118 horsepower. From 0-60 the f6 would be right beside your zr800. I think the f6 is the best motor as far as reliability of the twin spar chassis generation or arguably of any 600cc cat motor (suzuki motor). My buddy has 10,200 miles on his f6 with not one problem and only on its 2nd set of sparkplugs. I own a 2011 f8 sno pro which is the same chassis as the 2007 f6 and I love it!!!
