Will you stick to a 600?

Just curious what the general consensus is. I was talking to my cousin today and he has had numerous bikes in the past (750s, 600s) and recently picked up a new zx6r. I asked him why not a larger cc bike since he has lots of riding experience and he said "no need...I dont think I would ever get anything bigger than a 600". His reasoning was pretty simple. With a larger cc bike theres really no need for performance mods. But he said thats the whole fun in having a bike, to mod the crap out of it. He plans on adding a full exhaust and all the other usual things. So that got me thinking and thats why I made this poll.

I myself dont see the point in anything bigger. 600 is where its at for me. Ive ridden larger cc bikes but they just dont appeal to me. I cant wait to get my full system, filter and custom tune!!

Vote away

for what?

Most of us are nowhere near what AMA Supersport pros run at the track.

For example...

the AMA Supersport record at VIR is a 1:26.78 held by Jason DiSalvo...which is about 10 seconds faster than a Club EXPERT RACER can run on a 600cc.

There's absolutely no need for more than 600cc (supersport) on the road or the track.

2007 600RR - Arata Full Ti, Bazzaz ZFI/AFM, Pipercross Race filter, Repsol 4T synthetic, 520 ERV3 conversion, 15/43 renthal sprockets, Galfer Superbike brake lines, Vesrah RJL's, Bridgestone BT002 Pro Soft/Medium, Vortex rearsets, Ten kate replica intake, red/white/black rattle can spray job.


R.I.P. Chenhan Wu aka Phatstud 05/08/1980-10/19/2010. May you find Peace and may Peace find you.

I said sticking to the 600. I've been there, done that. I bought a 954 after owning my 600 for a couple of months because I wanted more power. Went back to a 636. Went to a SV1k, then got a Gix 1k and had a ZX for track duty. (I know, I'm retarded) Now I just have the RR and don't see myself getting a 1k unless its used for street use. I just don't ride the street enough to make it worth while to own another bike just for the street.

I have had ALOT of bikes in 14 years of street and track riding and still to this day I have never owned anything bigger than a 600. They are the perfect balance of power and weight to beat almost anything on street or track unless it is a long straight away. 600 with some different sprockets is my weapon of choice and dont expect that to change.

Lucky SOB!!! :icon_lol:

Would be nice to have both a 600 for the track and liter for the street. I once i finish with 2 more trackdays and Biketoberfest this year I plan to sell the bike. then next year save up for a cheap track bike than can ocassionally be ridden in the street. I'd luv to have a used 750 or 600RR 06/07 or an 06 1kRR/GSXR1k.

Litre bikes are only good for the highway and racing. I dont know too many things besides bigger bikes that can beat even a stock 600 and I dont do enough commuting for the litre to worth it. Im stickin with my 600s.

Before you go getting a gxr, check out the dyno charts. You might be surprised!

Since it should be about 2yrs until the update on the 1krr, I'll probably have the 600 paid for and be ready for a bigger bike by then. I'm also thinking about cruisers or customs for my next bike, but who knows. As for now, I know I'll never get rid of my 600. I friggin' LOVE this bike!!!!!!!
