  • Can Not Underestimate A 600 ....

    i do not consider to be the best rider in the world but i can hold my own when it comes to corners and doing some stunts...i have a couple of friends with a new R6 AND 600RR both bone stock keep in mind.. and we tried doing 4,5,6, gear roll on's and straight line stop light racing ( on an old road no one ever drives on). and those damn 600's were right there with the TLR every time do not get me wrong i love my TLR to death but damn those things are quick for 600's i could only imagine if you put a good quality full system pipe and a couple of other go fast goodies on it.. i imagine they will whoop my ass here shortly... oh well just thought i would vent but no way am i getting a machine that you can turn your head a every stop light and see one ...but all i wanted to say NEVER EVER UNDERSTIMATE A 600

    Don't ever worry about a 600 ever again, go hunting for I4 1k's and bigger...

          The trick to 600s is to not roll on with them. Take them from down low. It is their achillies heel.

          Start down low, and show your dominance. They will respect the head of the pack, and then just tell them you aren't into strait line racing.

                and the other stupid. low end corner bashing fun. it pisses those high rpm whizzers off every time.....my buddy has a new 03 r6 with full micron race system and pc3usb, and everything but the 520 conversion done to it. i admit high speed roll ons are pretty close, i still beat him though, but corner exits i make him my bitch everytime...

                      I thought it was youth and skill, but anyway.... I used to have an '00 R6 and I could keep the fornt end down long enough to race anyone. 1st and 2nd, after it hit 6k the front end came up wether you wanted it to or not. Racing from a stop you may of had the advantage there. Sorry to say but on a tight coarse a 600 will whoop a liter bike (twin or I4) no matter how much low end TQ it has. That 600 is already through the corner by the time your powering out of it. Fact of life. I still wouldn't go back to a 600.

                        that is like saying a 250 is the fastest bike in the twisties...while it is true, it takes a rider that understands holding high corner speeds and doesnt try to point and shoot the bike. a big bike (with lotsa grunt) and a decent rider will take a 600 with a rider of the same skill pretty much everytime in the twisties. and if there are short straights mixed in...fahgedaboudit!!

                        2000 tillis plus stuff with some polished stuff and some carbon fiber stuff and a little bit of tlr stuff and some gsxr stuff

                          exactly kevh. while i see your point gxrklr, the fact is, you need to be a hell of a rider on a 600 to keep up with the literbikes, even in the twisties. all other points aside, i am a pretty skilled rider, and my buddy on the r6 is a newbie this year, inspite of him having 7k on his bike so far this year....oh yeah, pretty damned sure my quote is 100% correct, but i still cant remember who said it... maybe a search is in order here

                            True, but that would only apply to below average skilled riders and maybe average. A somewhat skilled rider will know the differences between the 600 and the liter and how to take advantage of thier strong points and compensate for thier short commings. A less skilled rider can go faster on a liter becasue it has that extra grunt to compensate with.

                              Don't know what kind of rider I am, I hope atleast average. But from watching video taken from the Gap, I was quicker on my 600 than I am on the R1.

                              Oh, you can get that phrase on a T-shirt.
