600? good enough to stunt yes?

so im totally new to stunting. anyway, i had a friend say that i should stick to bikes 750 and bigger, that too many mods had to be made to a 600 to be fun. i took that advice with a table spoon of salt and decided to get a 2nd opinion. was considering the f4. just wanting a cheaper stunt bike cause i know ill be wrecking it at least once. hopefully no more than once. anyway, help is appreciated.

cya

I have a question from one who does not stunt, why is the 600 preferred, is it the cheaper cost or lighter weight or something else?

The main reason is that throttle control is alot easier, not as twitchy

F4i's and 636's, aka Cheater bikes, are the most used for stunting

yeah...give most of those young cats out there killin it on a 600 a liter bike and they would kill themselves. Most have no throttle control cuz they only learned to ride with a handbrake. Speaking of that, take the H/B's off their bikes and they would kill themselves!

The thing with SS coasters and no handbrake is you cant go far, gotta have a HB to rock those for distance, it's kinda like doing SS no-handers, you can only go so far before it either falls forward or back to the bar...You comin out tomorrow Joe?

like i said im new to stunting so ill have questions that are obvious to most of you. the handbrake you are all referring to controls the rear brake yes?


im guessing 600s are good enough to do highway wheelies right?
