I've just went through the specs for the new kawi 6RR/636. It seems that it has every kind of modification we would want in a 600 supersport, (slipper clutch, USD forks, radial brakes, etc.) . No doubt that Yamaha, Honda, and Suzuki will be following suit. What else can future 600 supersports offer? It really blows my mind to see what kind of bikes are coming out these days.

So I'll start if off, I'm thinking maybe bigger radiators, and more titanium components.

(BTW, I'll be reposting this topic on BARF.)

Yeah, a Ti exhaust would be nice,
and steering damper,
and steel brake lines,
and Mag rims,
and custom springs (fronts and rear),
520 chain w/ gearing aimed towards more torque,
a programable ECU. Just to name a few... :roll:

coulda swore our exhaust was Titanium, but thats just me. . .

yeah a 20lb-30lb diet is about the only thing i can think of. . . bigger brakes maybe, never hurts to have better brakes.

I'm not only talking about the 600RR. I was referring to all the 600s. The already kawi has a slipper clutch. What can the manufacturers throw on a production 600 bike that they haven't already done yet?

cvlighthouse is on the right track.

keep em coming guys...imagine one day going into the dealership and buying a bike that needs absolutely no aftermarket mods.

If it were Ti, it would have to be the heaviest titanium ive ever felt...
I would like to see integrated lap timers (a la zx-10r I believe), USD Forks (w/radial mounted brakes of course), ss brake lines and a damper stock. Possible a 2 or 3 way rear suspension, but that might be asking too much.

but imagine not having that pricetag and maintenance headache.


I totally forgot about the lap timers. The 520 chain would be good too.

kenezzite, a slipper clutch replaces the conventional clutch, it "slips" under hard downshifting regulating the rear wheel so it doesn't skip around when your diving into a corner.

Was the kawi the first production bike to have it as a stock component?

I saw this on barf. What if they started offering option packages?

I want better fasteners! I hate plastic fairing fasteners!!!!! quick release rims like at Daytona, adjustable speedometers for gearing changes. I want to be able to go from street to track in less than ten minutes. Make all the turn signals clip off, headlights/tailights pull out and have an insert to put in its place, liscense plate holder/rear fender easier to remove. Another good thing would be to have all the proper bolts pre-drilled for safety wire. Figure out how to make it to where we can change the oil without removing any fairings/overflow resivoirs. (know what I mean) Adjustable rear sets and clip ons would be nice also.

Well, THAT'S not fun!!!! :razz:

A big part of the enjoyment is making our bikes uniquely our own.

I was having a conversation with Jimmy Lin (AFM#756) the other day and telling him how I had debated between massively upgrading my last bike, an SV650, or selling it to to get the 600RR. I told him I made by final decision based on the fact that even if I spent the $2000+ to mod the SV, it still woudn't be as good a bike as the stock RR.

To which he replied...."and so you bought the RR, and you spent $2000+ on mods anyway!"

:lol2: :lol2: :lol2:

So true.

Yep, it doesn't matter how technologically advanced a bike is when it rolls off the showroom floor...most of us are still gonna find some reason to mod it.

hehe but seriously

- I'd have to say softer seat (like the corbin), at least for street riding
- always been a fan of dual filiment bulbs instead of having to listen to "hey, you've got a headlight out!" all damn day
- definately slipper clutch
- oem throttle lock would be nice but would never happen
- dual pipes
