Are we really arguing over what goes faster at TWS (Texas World Speedway) a 1000 or 600? Same top Rider, same tires, ect... are you really saying they would go faster on a 600?

I get what you guys are saying. The gap is closer but to say that a 600 is "just as fast" as a 1k all things being equal is ludicrous.

I also realize it won't matter for op. He isnt a top club racer. But i would bet if you asked which bike ty howard went faster on a 600 or a 1k or even the 800 well....

There is no replacement for displacement.
No arguments here. You are completely correct on all of your statements. All I'm saying is that 600's are good bikes to go fast enough to get you killed if you are not careful. They are a bit more forgiven then the 1000's... I do think the OP is making the right choice by moving down. Like they say " it's a lot more fun making a slow bike go fast then to go slow on a fast bike"

That's all I was trying to say. I don't consider myself an inexperienced rider. I probably have 40k miles of riding but this is my first liter bike and sure my ego isn't going to get hurt. It's probably too much bike for me and I'm fine with that and maybe it's a comfort thing that o felt the 600's handled better because I was probably more comfortable and not as worried about the power or the rear tire losing grip under acceleration. Maybe this will change with more seat time who knows. I was just simply asking a comparison of the handling Sorry to step on any toes. I don't don't the majority in here are way faster riders than I am that's why I was just seekin a little insight

If the bike's in good condition, handling won't be an issue.

Wel I bought it with a stretch and lowering kit. Trashed all that junk and just got I back together. I'm almost positive that setting the suspension up proper will fix it right up. I know I came off as an idiot with the whole air pressure thing but I haven't been back on 2 wheels in 2.5 years and this last week after I got it back together has been a rush of collecting gear and getting that stretch off. Just slipped my mind. I haven't rode the thing more than 50 miles I probably just need to get the feel back
