Cripple tripple or build a low cc bike

So after riding the ninja 400 during a trackday i really enjoyed it and felt that I improved in riding then with my d675. I have a 08 gsxr 600 and was wondering if it would be better to cripple it then getting a low cc bike and build it to make it track worthy. Anyone who has done a cripple tripple I was wondering how much it costed to mod it and if its super easy to revert it back to a 600. I assume it's way cheaper to cripple a 600 then modding a low cc bike unless I'm buying a track prepped bike. If anyone has info let me know thanks !

You want to search the racer's corner. Plenty of stories and how-tos if you want to do a cripple triple. It seems like a great class.

IF you have nothing going on this weekend, come out to Sonoma for AFM round 6 and chat with those guys. They're very helpful and friendly.

Do you intend to race it or just take a 600 down to 400?

If you are not going to race it, I don't see any benefit. You will have just a bike that's heavier than your Daytona but with less power. Unless I'm missing something.

This. The benefit of a cripple tripple is to make it legal to race in the 450 class. Without the 450 class, there really isn't a point to it. Just ride your GSXR600 and put money into the suspension.

Well then, convert it back to 600 for better durability and driveability and use your wrist to limit the power.

That said, I honestly don't see any benefit at all over your Daytona 675 but there is a lot of potential downside. You might be better off getting the suspension on your D675 dialled in/upgraded as I suspect that's the core of the issue.
