new gsxr600

i went and looked at them yesterday,and found out that you can control the tuining of them with a flip of a switch
well the point is has anyone rode one and does the down tuning really work?
if so thats a pretty good idea for starters,so people dont waste money on 250
they say you can tune it to right around 400,and o the lowest of like 290,and of course the 599.
n e ways im thinking about just buying new if this works as good as they say they do
if n e one knnows about them tell me what you know
thnks oz

Some of the new suzuki's come with a power mode selector switch.
It limits power output on the lower settings to make the bike a little bit more manageable when riding in wet weather.

Contrary to popular belief, it's purpose was'nt intended to allow new riders to start on a SS bike.

"Dad, will you buy me a new Gixxer 600? But Dad!....... I won't get killed. It has this switch. It makes it into a 250 or a 400. But Dad!....... I'll use the switch.........Promise!.............. No, of course I don't have a switch on me. You always treat me like a little kid!!!!!"

. People been dying for years and all they needed was a switch. Suzuki should be sued for not thinking of this sooner.

While the switch does decrease the power output, it's not like turning it in to a 250 or 400 or whatever the salesman told you.

It's still plenty potent and will still go very fast.

It is not a replacement for starting with a smaller bike.

i have the bike and tuning it is just the same as the 1000 - A,B,&C mode of course A being full power which is always on and C being lowest, to tell the truth i really havent tried de-tuning it because they isnt what i bought it for, but i have heard you dont notice THAT much of a difference. ill try in the morning and let you know how it goes
