Question 600 to a 750

Anybody owned a gsxr600 and upgraded to a 750 (or vice versa)? i havnt been fortunate enough to make friends with a 750 owner and im really curious as to the differences..

or anybody ridden both a 600 and 750, preferably the same year model, 06 or later?

do they feel like the same bike, but with a small power difference? acceleration, low, mid, high range power, handling...??

input would be greatly appreciated as i am trying to decide what bike to get after i sell my 06 gsxr 600.. im leaning toward a cbr, but id like to ride a 750 first

track please sir, w/o riding one it seems like it would be a nice upgrade from my 600 since they are basically the same bike with a few more horses? my 06 just doesnt have the midrange that my friend's 08 cbr 600's have.. im by no means an experienced track rider so any input would be great

Honestly, I couldn't tell any real difference top end just how it came off corners on a 750. It wasn't any faster than a 600 with a supersport motor either. I have actually gone faster at MSRH with a bone stock 600 motor, and the 600 is way more manageable... the 750's torque can get you if your not being careful.

I feel ya and your post was excellent. I'm just pointing out that Tom is far more experienced than the OP is. You've got to learn to ride what you have before adding more power. Must learn how to walk before you start running.

Read the link posted above. Top speed isn't appreciably higher, but they do have more grunt coming out of a turn.

Hey, WTF mate!







I was also making a change to a '06 750 from an '03 600, which is a big difference. The '06 600 and '06 750 are not too much different other than with the 750 you can keep most of the liter bikes close in the straights.

There is a lot of grunt out of the corners, but nothing you really can't get out of a 600 too with good corner speed and throttle control.

Well my gsxr is my trackbike ONLY cuz my RR is not payed off yet. IMO the 600rr is the absolute PERFECT streetbike and is super fun on the track. Tons of midrange and torque, very flickable and extremely forgiving. The 600RR is my favorite bike.

The gsxr I only have 5 trackdays on, so I'm still getting used to it. It's a good bike needs to be in the perfect gear at the perfect time while on the track. With re-gearing it now has plenty of torque but less top end, which sucks for fast tracks like TWS (Texas World Speedway). It's a little more "bulky", if you will, coming into a turn and exiting. I think I just need some serious seatime on it.


But IMO the RR is way "funner" to ride ANYWHERE

It's still a GSXR though...

You need to buy more sprockets man. Different track require different gearing.

Last season I kept a 15/16 front and 43-47 rears with me at all events.
