I am slower on my R6 at the track than my 1K, that's because I don't like to hear it scream.

Clutches are useless now days.

its comparing two different things clyde. the 600 is "smaller" but can do somethings easier than the 1k's.

you give up some to gain in other areas. now the 636 i love for the torque and how easy it is to enter a turn at high speed because of the rake.

Clyde, what in the heck are you talking about? Of course the 600 is not going to have the low end torque of a 1K-espesially a black 05 gixxer 1K Forget about that torque! That torque is what will get you in trouble on the street or the track. Just ride the bike more and you will learn what that bike likes to get that power that you are use to (here is a hint High RPM's). You will like the 600 better in the long run i promise. I remember when i bought my first 600. I knew the moment i rode it out of the parking lot of the dealer that i had made the biggest mistake. But after riding it a while i learned that if you keep the rpm's way up there it has plenty of power. Also like some of the others said gearing will help a lot. Good luck Clyde and don't give up yet!

youre so old that your nerve endings have shriveled therefore you can't really feel how fast you're going.
