If you're insurance doesn't sky rocket and you respect the bike, why not?


Have fun and be safe (ATGATT).

Both have their advantages, what are you looking for? You have something you're looking for?

Do you only ride on the street?

Street, track, commuting, weekend warrior? I have a 1krr and must admit it is nice. But the 600 had some advantages.

Really depends on what you want, how much experience you have, and how much your willing to pay. Just keep in mind that with that extra power comes extra responsibility and extra money!

So..your reason so far to get a 1k is because you are living with your gf now?

That is not typically the case or reason to move to a 1k for most, as you can ride a 600 w/ passenger just fine, unless you exceed the GVWR. If that is the case, get a cruiser..you will be more comfortable chugging along with a passenger if you care about the passengers comfort. Our bikes are not really designed for comfort in mind, let alone passenger comfort.

Ima decently big dude and I ride with my wife My 600rr is perfectly fine. And. Yeah. I won't go fast.... My butt. If you get a 1k your wanna experiment and see how fast it is and how different it is to the 600. Ur rr will get to around 160 mph Why would u want anything faster lol. That is pretty darn fast bro

Well, I was also thinking the reasoning behind it is since he has moved in or vice versa, there is more funds available to purchase the 1k. And in that case, I would say, "HELL NO." Things change and ladies get nutty. So if you can't do it on your own, don't do it.

Though everything you said about pricing makes sense brmoore.

im in the same debacle too...i mean if i do it wont be for another year, i'll forsure ride this next season on my 600, but the 1000rr....mmmmmhmm haha!

but then there is a part of me that knows i dont need that power for anything.

I partially think part of the reason i want one is just so i can talk smack to my brother haha, but after riding his gsxr1000 and how quick that power is there makes me want it...but scares me at the same time, reality is i dont need it, but i want it!

where the brain (logic) and the heart (emotion) clash, the heart always wins. there is no logical reason to upgrade to a 1000, in fact, there are a dozen reasons NOT to upgrade, but you want it, can afford it, so you will upgrade.

EDIT: note how i mistakenly used the word upgrade, indicating wrongly that it would be better for you. its not, its emotive.

I think if you have mastered your 600rr, then sure, it makes sense to go with a 1000rr. But I doubt most of us have mastered a 600cc sportbike. I know I haven't, and I'm not exactly novice.

I would venture to guess that if you are disenchanted with your 600rr, you just haven't had the opportunity to learn how to have real fun on it. Put your money toward some track gear and a couple trackdays, and then revisit your desire to get a liter. 600's leave a slim margin for error sometimes, liters cut that margin in half. Food for thought.

You'll never master a 600.

They are different animals, they each teach you something different and they each allow you to enjoy them differently.

Better idea: buy your gf her own bike (a 250) and keep the RR!

Personally, I think the 600rr is slow and anyone can push the bike to its potential, especially on the street, where 170mph just isn't good enough. You need that extra 10-15mph to really have a good time anyways. Yeah, they are lighter and easier handling middle weight sport bikes, but who needs that when it's easier to go in a straight line anyways. The 1000rr is a better choice for anyone, even beginners really. If you don't get killed, then you can move up to the hayabusa in a week or two. Just don't completely total the thing, otherwise you'll have a hard time getting anything out of it to put towards your new bike. Make sure to put a power commander, full exhaust, and a k&n air filter on it during the first couple weeks because it makes it so much faster and more powerful. Most people on forums do it for a reason, because their first sensible initial reactions are that it needs more power, and how right they are. Brakes and suspension aren't important at all, either is gear or riding ability. All you need to know is how to let the clutch out and shift through the gears (even if you suck at that) if you can do that you are pretty much good to ride any bike at a moto gp level. Those guys aren't even that good anyways, most of them started riding little 250's and 500cc two strokes...(same engines used in weedwackers). Make that move man, these 600's are child's play! Impress your girlfriend too!

Hardly anybody "NEEDS" a 1000 (nobody needs it on the street). But it is certainly nice to have. If I were planning on always having a passenger, I wouldn't feel as bad if I took them on the 1000 ( I feel guilty for weighing my 600 down like that- I'm heavy enough by myself). I would say the decision depends on your riding experience and whether or not you are financially stable enough to make that move. If I had the money I would definitely buy a 1k, but I would be hesitant to give up my 600 because I still love that bike.

What is all this talk about pushing a 600 to its potential?

First off you can't push ANYTHING to it's potential on the street. Unless all you're talking about is hitting the rev limiter.

Any potential can only be realized on the race track, and no, not anyone can push that potential. If that's true, how many lap record holders are there here?

How many of you are within a second of your local track record?

Ah... Didn't think so...

best advice yet!!! i was hospitalized for a bit so i gave the wife my 600, she loved it so much i got to buy a 929 Lol.

now she rocks a custom 250 ninja and i have my rsv1000r. we also have a vulcan 1500 nomad for 2 up cruising.

no matter what type of riding we want to do she can chose how she wants to enjoy the experiences.

got 2. 8yr old daugher rides a CRF50 and my 4yr old son rides a PW50. the daughter is getting a bigger bike in the spring.

not that it pertains too much to this topic, but some days i prefer to just sit in my lawn chair, drink a few beers and watch the kids destoy the lawn instead of riding.

If you have the gear, funds, and time then try riding on the track just once. You'll find a new appreciation for what RR is capable of.

Full coverage, insurance wants more for my CBR600RR than my 1098.

Don't let insurance be a deciding factor. Shop around.

Yeah, they are lighter and easier handling middle weight sport bikes, but who needs that when it's easier to go in a straight line anyways. The 1000rr is a better choice for anyone, even beginners really. If you don't get killed, then you can move up to the hayabusa in a week or two. Just don't completely total the thing, otherwise you'll have a hard time getting anything out of it to put towards your new bike. Make sure to put a power commander, full exhaust, and a k&n air filter on it during the first couple weeks because it makes it so much faster and more powerful. Most people on forums do it for a reason, because their first sensible initial reactions are that it needs more power, and how right they are. Brakes and suspension aren't important at all, either is gear or riding ability. All you need to know is how to let the clutch out and shift through the gears (even if you suck at that) if you can do that you are pretty much good to ride any bike at a moto gp level. Those guys aren't even that good anyways, most of them started riding little 250's and 500cc two strokes...(same engines used in weedwackers). Make that move man, these 600's are child's play! Impress your girlfriend too!
Haha awesomeness
