Find a gearing calculator already set up for the gears on your bike and trans and you will be able to see what your mph would be in each gear.

or


Use this one for reference and key in your correct specs for gearing and tire size.

http://members.aol.com/mwheele/rrgear.xls


edit: you could probably go -1/+1 and only lose around 10-15 mph on top end. But again you'll need to see what it is with your gearing and tire size.

Hey now, be nice...

I rode my 600 to work today to do some maintenance for my gf before she starts riding it again. OMG... It rolls over so easy, is so lightweight(and freakin low!) I can see why you'd want more power, a sprocket change may make its way to mine too

I dunno, kind of dangerous to be using it on the street..maybe in a short strech..not more then that...besides its not a turbo..its not to be used in a day to day basis.....additionally I need some testing to determine where it can be used and what not

i would have tried the gearing route first. A -1 front sprocket would have cost you twenty bucks or less and you could have found people on here to help you put it on if you need the assistance.
It's legal (not sure if nitrous isn't) and completely safe/reliable.

As far as beating a busa goes, it all depends on the rider and where you are trying to beat him. When i had my 550 motard I beat a Busa out at MSR Houston. It took me a few laps to hold off his lead on the straights but corner speed and braking won out eventually.

Sounds like you want to go fast in a straight line, If it were me I would buy a Busa, I heard they are pretty fast. If you want to keep the 600 I would try the new sprockets, that will make a noticable difference.

Considering the only power gain is the nitrous, on a 600... in a quarter maybe 2 seconds but likely a second off your stock quarter.

Remember there are gearing issues too... Larger liter bikes may have higher gears to shift less too... so you would be nitrous on, off, shift, on, off, shift... I don't think clutchless shifting w nitrous on a stock engine would be wise. Anyone with N chime in?
