Personally running -1/+2 520 conversion. Brings the 600 to life much quicker. It's the all around go to sprocket change.

You could run even higher gearing at GSS, but I don't see much point in spending the money for more options unless you're racing there.

Probably the easiest solution:

If you're not riding on the street with the CBR anymore I wouldn't waste the money though. That speedometer should be taped over.

if you think -1/+2 brings it to life try -1/+7, it will take a whole day to relearn new lines, but a lot of fun

With a quick turn throttle and the gearing change I can easily lift the front through the first three gears coming out of turns. I don't really want to wreck any more than I already do by turning the throttle into an on/off switch.

15-43 then. O and yes, tape your speedometer. You should be looking down the track not at the speedometer. Then again, I'm slow as ....

throttle control is a must. If you're lamely gearing the bike simply because you're a herp derp with your right wrist, you're missing an important skill.
