Well I'm pretty new here, but wanted to post up some photos of my new-to-me 600rr.
It's only got 9800miles on her, and a few mods (PC3, 520conversion, slip-on, etc) Lots of little touches though, so tell me what you guys think! I really love this bike, super fun. But I did have a few gripes: the throttle is almost impossible to roll back on from coasting without 'jerking'. Any fixes for that?
Plus my wrists get sore/numb after a while, so I got the gel sport grips, but didn't really help. I usually ride without gloves. Any Ideas?
Well here's a pic, click here to see the gallery:

nice bike bro...do you get any heat from the cops with your license plate?
about your wrists, try to hold yourself a little more upright by gripping the tank with your legs...it might take a little getting used to, but it will take pressure off your wrists. try not to lock your elbows too.

Wow, you must like like the sense of touch. Getting gloves would help but it's probably to hot there in California.:bootyshak

nice i gotta red 03 too but mines a tribal : )
you should definately get some gloves they will help. You just need to get some throttle control it comes from seat time. You said your from SoCal? Whereabouts?

I know. A car turned into me without signaling on my other bike. And my ONLY injury was to my hand. Sucks, but I just like riding without gloves.

BTW I have 20,000+ miles on the street and 8 years riding experience.
I've learned a good amount in the 6 previous bikes I've owned, this is just my first super sport bike. :icon_lol:

Cool. Your bike is a bit illegal considering how cops roll in SB. May want to move that plate and get some proper signals.
