Hey boys and girls, I just picked up an 03 600RR with 4900 km on it. I had it inspected and the bike checked out. It just needs a little TLC.

The question I have is where should I start. My big issue is the motor is a little slow to rev. It doesn't have the same "pop" some of the other bikes I've been on had.

Thanks for the input!!

about 230 lbs (yes I'm a big boy)

The bike makes more than enough power for my skill level, there is just some hesitation or time between when I turn the throttle and when I feel the motor rev up

If I weighed 230 and rode a 600 I would get new sprockets and re-gear it. You really wont loose much top speed and it will seem less sluggish. I weigh a lot less than you and I re-geared my 03 600rr. Just leave your front sprocket alone and throw a 48-50 tooth on the back (basically it's the same as -1 +2 with an extra tooth or two.

Also check the chain slack as mentioned already and check your idle. What does your bike idle at? And check the free play in your throttle. If you just bought it I would also change the oil.

yea, 230 is fairly hefty for a 600. i weigh 160, and a couple days ago i took my sister on the back (she weighs about 120) so total= 280. the bike seemed to have about half the power i'm used to. that's why i'm suggesting that your weight could have a lot to do with why the bike feels sluggish.
