Good luck. But my three gixer 750's were rubbish. K6 and K7's. Build quality was fookin rubbish....
I'm aiming to move up to a gixxer 750 in a year or so.
How come you had three of em if they were rubbish?
Gixxers are great ...
..they wouldn't sell by the bucketload otherwise.
thing i can say is i sat on a gixxer 600 other day and it felt tiny underneath me
Is that a good or bad thing ?
Kindle not a fire that you cannot extinguish.
i dont know it actually fe;lt smaller than my yzf r 125 it freake dme out, wen tand sat on 06 r6 that was at sideof it and felt much better and a lot bigger.
That's comes as no suprise to me about the size between the gixxer 600 and R6, as the height of the R6 is 40mm higher, 850mm seat height.
As I am a shortie the R6 felt too high for me.
also felt thicker as well compared to the gixxer althoguh when im ready for my next bike i think it will be between an R6 and a bruce antsey rep GSXR600.
Wonder what tehy feel like whne riding them would gsxr be better because its smaller than r6 or will it be really cramped
Great choice mate, but i think the 600 is a bad idea and a waste of your money.
I did the exact same 6 years back, had a '98 ZX6-R and loved it. Upgraded to the Gixxer750 and still have this bike, it now has 55,000 miles on it and is going strong.
The reason I went for the 750 was cos i felt that I was really beginning to have to ring the neck of the 6R to get it to do what i wanted and so 750 was the obvious choice as i felt, and still do that buying a 1000cc superbike for UK roads is a waste of money, you will NEVER use all that power on the road. I've got 2 Gixxer750's.. a K1 & a K6 and i love 'em both.
I'd go straight for the 750 now bud, why you need a year on a 600 when you've had one for ages?? Good luck anyway mate and ride safe
sorry all wrong....
sorry guys....just go for the 1000 cc 08/09 Fireblade or ZX10R Ninja (can't comment on the 09 R1 or 09 GSXR1000)........both light, big power, handling.....ya beauty. Note the steering damper on the Fireblade is not great (if you push on rough roads!!), go for hyperpro RSC (reactive)...which I have on the Ninja....very good!!
