Hey guys,
I'm coming off an 08 gixxer (trackbike) bought an 09 cbr600rr couldn't pass up the deal, I never owned Honda.
Today we had our 1st practice due to some bullcrap going on with the track with dbls levels and neighbors.

100% no regrets.....!!! Will never look back again to Suzuki again....
Key factors.....
-Never did I experience any brake fade... did 3 (45min) sessions not once did the lever fade in....
-So much more lighter then the gixxer
-More flickier, I smoked through the "s" like I never did before
-Totally wants to finish the turn while going to WOT
We have 1 more practice tomorrow then I race on Sat.

I can officially say now
HONDA RULES...!!!
But I'm sure you all know this....
Hahaha....
just my .02 cents

Really? No brake fade??

I hated the stock brakes on my 2007. Too squishy and faded like crazy.

Put in new fluid, just to make sure. No difference.
Upgraded to Galfer braided lines. Better, but still crap.
Replaced with 2010 GSXR master cylinder. LOADS better. Feel is much more progressive with much less brake fade. Hurts the most when I'm able to ride 2-3 Red Flag free sessions in the summer.

I agree with KnightShade. I've experienced brake fade on all of my CBRs '07, '09, '09, however, street use they are great. Honda ALL the way :)

Glad you're liking the new ride!
