Kawasaki ZX9R....very similar, if not greater comfort levels when compared to a Thundercat and an absolute missle in a straight line. I have been lucky enough to ride a 2000 and 2003 models at various times. Fantastic bikes. Available very cheaply for the level of performance

I think you should stick with the Cat, after the couple of incidents you've had surly your insurance is going to be high if you go towards a more sports orientated bike?

What is it you are feeling that makes you think there is something wrong with your current Cat?

Sounds like it needs a service, new plugs, oil change, clean air filter and carb balance would sure help. As you know a loose chain doesn't help a smooth ride at all.

It is normal for the wheel to turn when on the stand and in neutral, but you should be able to easily stop it (not that I'd recommend you try though).

Find a decent service center and have it done professionally, especially seeing you are not able to loosen some bolts. I think you'll be amazed how the bikes feels afterwards.
If there is something really wrong with the bike, the mechanic should tell you about it.

But you've just come into some money? And Im sure a service is a whole lot cheaper than a new bike? Plus you'd sell it for a whole lot less if its got something wrong with it, Im sure.

There must be some decent mechy nearby.
I too wouldn't take mine anywhere near my Mr Yamaha workshop.
Maybe ask on the Scottish bikers forum who is good in your area.

Any reason you don't trust the wee garage? I take mine to possibly the most scruffy of looking places imaginable. The mechanic is good and I doubt there is anything he hasn't come across. He doesn't stick to manufacturers service check lists, goes over everything and adjusts/ replaces if needed.
