This site has helped me a lot. The most important one is to let the bike warm up before you turn it off, unless I don't might taking the plugs out. (which I did twice) before I realized why I fouled them up.

I almost agree with Toe. The site used to be about performance and now the majority of the posts seem to be cosmetic. Is that the direction this site is going? It seems 1 out of 10 riders here have chosen performance upgrades before cosmetic. And I'm not talking about a slip on (that's mainly cosmetic too,) I'm talking about suspension, lightening the bike, brake upgrades, safety concerns for street riders (performance if you come home alive,) fuel management, track days, tire experimentation.
I understand there are a lot of posts on these topics, but it seems like latley 600rr.net is lacking substance. Is 600rr.net just about wires and LED's?

Where is the Beef?

Diversity is our future! Some people are satisfied with the performance of our bikes the way they are designed! What more do you need for the street? Why not ask the cosmetic questions? Any true enthusiest will make a contribution to these questions as well as performance questions. I did not buy my bike to see how much faster I could get it to go than what it was engineered to do. I bought it to ride and enjoy! This is a mass produced bike and anyone with credit or cash can have the same bike. In order to set our bikes apart from the rest we must change something. We do not all ride on the track and think that we can ride our stock bike to it's full potential, so we make it our own by changing it's appearence from every other bike in the city. I respect all who are fortunate enough to have the skills to master this bike!(I personally think that very few can even come close!!!) I know that I am not one who can! I like to think of myself as an excellent rider with years of knowledge and experience. I would also like to think that the purpose of this site is for those of us with any interest in motorcycles what so ever is welcome to ask any questions or make any comments without negative critisism from people who happen to feel that they are better than others!!! I am not suggesting that you feel this way, I am just stateing my opinion! I am all for performance and cosmetic modifications to any bike as long as you are making an improvement! I would also like to thank everyone who has made a contribution to this site and answered all of my questions and made me feel like a welcome part of this community!

Very well put ADRENALINEJUNKY. All contributing members should be praised for this excellent site. We shouldn't divide the users into two different groups: Racers vs. Street riders. Neither group is better than the other. The more diverse the site, the more quality information can be shared amongst us.

When I first joined this site, I was strictly a street rider. My only upgrades were cosmetic. I still don't need to make this well engineered machine any faster. Heck, I can't even come close to pushing my bike to its limits.

Now, I am looking forward to trying my first trackday in two weeks. I never would have been inspired to do that if it wasn't for this site. I've been riding for 8 seasons now, and it wasn't until I started coming here that I completely changed my outlook on riding.

I'll admit, I used to be a complete squid. I rarely wore my helmet, didn't own any leather protection, etc... But now I can proudly say I gear up before each and every ride, and encourage others to do the same. I have this site to thank for that.

Back to the orginal question posted... If the only thing you take away from this site is how to install a FE, then you've really missed out. There is so much more information that is available.

Okay, but does anyone else feel like the old timers on this site have left?

If this site is all about flushmounts and fender eliminators, wouldn't really knowledgeable people decline to comment on those topics. Ever notice the second a topic on suspension comes up, Zenodamper chimes in. Or fuel mapping, Birdman chimes in. Of course you get backprotector questions and License2ill pastes a shitt load of info. If you ask a question about flushmount blinker resistors you will get 20 experts on the subject.

How about this post: https://www.600rr.net/vb/showthread.php?t=43326

Only 10 posts responding to an engine builder who has built an engine that puts out over 135 rwhp! Did everyone just miss this post?

///another turnsignal rant////

I personally don't understand how a newer rider can spend hundreds of dollars on turnsignals and FE kits when they can get a nice steering damper. I myself have done just about every mod to my bike, but one thing I won't do is touch is the turnsignals. Clear lenses work fine for me. And my bike looks trick even with the stockers. Just about everything on my bike has a performance purpose including the turnsignals.

You won't se any negative comments by me in someones flushmount turnsignal thread, but you will see positive comments when someone asks about the clear turnsignal lenses w/ amber bulbs for the stock signals. Someone is actually using their brain! I laugh when I hear someone with greggs flushmounts has left the resistor off because they like the way the signals blink fast. It gets drivers attention in downtown Chicago. WTF? You can't see those signals from 10 feet away. Why does it make a difference if they blink fast or not if the drivers can't see them anyway?
///end turnsignal rant///

FYI, the quote that started this post was from this guy:
http://www.peterverdonedesigns.com/CBR600RR.htm
You would think that he would frequent this site regularly, yet he is not even a member on here.

I will always like this site because I have met great friends and I have learned a lot of stuff on here. The direction that this site is going is beyond anyones control. Cosmetic mods and performance mods are only a small part of what goes on around here. 600rr.net is like a big family and I respect that. PVD's comment hit a soft spot with me because I like this site so much. I just thought I would bring it up for discussion. Feel free to reflect as I have... One way or another this site will go on even if it does filter out the racers and include more wires and LED's... ;)

it's true.

but that's what happens to every site that stays around for years. discussion goes from one thing to the other. And hey, how many guys actually go to the race track??. or wanna change suspension settings on the street???

oh well, this site is def good for getting deals (nick @ MRI), track issues (Tuna and others), group rides, cosmetics (tripage), performance, etc...

Problem is, all the performance subjects have been done to death. the only new threads starting up are Newbies asking what exhaust is prettier, or what FE is hot right now.

Isn't there a new RR coming out for 07????
let's see how that changes things around here.

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 found this site very helpful...from a performance stand point...to a cosmetic in depth view...i've learned so much from all the old timers on here. if it wasn't for this site my bike would not be what it is today. I feel i'm a better rider from reading some of the tips ppl have posted on here. This site is amazing IMO...

totally disagree....this site has helped me to be better aware of what my motorcycle can do, how it could look like, and how to save some major money on doing things myself....not to mention most everybody here tries to help fellow members out with deals/group buys

When you've been here for 3 years yeah, everythings been discussed. Of course you seen it all and you get sick of seeing the same posts over and over. I come on this site, help people out when i can, and look up information and post topics occasionally if i need help. I like to think that i help a lot of people out, and i always get my questions answered when i ask. That's what the sites for, theres new riders and theres people who've been riding for years; so of course the all the new riders are gonna come on and ask about the hottest slip-on and the most trick FE system. The people asking about suspension settings, motor work, and performance mods are just the people who have already done all that sh*t to their bike and don't want to deal with the same posts they were asking when they first got here.
Now I know some people are getting all bent out of shape now, but its true nobody likes the tractor mudflap and wants to set their bike apart from everyone else's. Everyones done cosmetic mods to their bike. We have 10,000 members here and probably 1/4 have no more than 5 posts that are about fender eliminators and exhaust. It's just what happens. As long as this site is always helpful when i have a question whether performance or cosmetic i have no complaints, thats what its here for.

So yes, cvlighthouse while i mostly agree with you, what do you expect? We keep getting more and more members and all the new people end up making the same posts.. But as long as you get your questions answered whether performance or cosmetic is what matters to me. I don't sweat the topics that have been beat to death, i just try to ignore them.

Jardine Slip-On (Titanium) - Polished Lips and Heelguards - Larry's FE System - Vortex Frame Sliders - Intuitive Swingarm Sliders - LP-V Short Stalks (Front and Rear) - Sprocket Specialists/Driven 15/43 Sprockets - DID 520 chain- Woodcraft Rearsets - Vortex Race Clip ons - Pazzo Levers

This site probably saved my life, when I just started riding this thing, I logged on here and got a lot of valuable riding tips and tips on how to stay out of trouble. Combine this and riding with veterans, taught me a lot and kept me safe.

Love the site. 600rr specific info is awesome. Good people and lots of help and info available. Tech tips, write ups, after market user feedback and just bouncing ideas off other riders.

Some of the juvenile flammage and temper tatrums get old but hell you get that anywhere on the net.

The idea that it is turning into a "cosmetics" site is way off. I think we are just seeing more members and as such we see more requests for info, and threads related to, the bling factor. I like both performance mods and bling so its all good.
