Hello all, my name is chris, I am upgrading hopefully to a 2003 Suzuki GSXR 600 after I sell my 250 that I started on.

Any info on that model year is welcomed. Thankyou

Welcome. Ninja 250?

I don't know that any year of the fuel injected bikes are much better then other years.

Generally the newer bikes got a slipper clutch, a bit more horsepower and better stock suspension.

Depending on what you have to spend, buy the newest one you can afford. Some people are more partial to the design of certain years than others but that is just personal preference.

No matter what you buy, look it over carefully for lack of maintenance, accident damage, etc.

Thats a pretty good step from the 250. You'll get used to the extra weight with time. The 600 will seem more stable especially at highway speeds, feels more solid. Fuel injection is nice, its harder to foul up with 3-6 month old gas than carburetors do.
If you get the 600 post up some pictures.
Really good guys here. You can learn just about anything you need to know
Most of us started on smaller and ended up where we are now.

Oh, Jesus. You are not even close to ready for that 600. By, at a minimum, a year.
Also, don't forget to tell everyone your age, your riding experience, and your crash history.

Hi Chris,

Like others have said, it's a different forum, but it doesn't change facts.
We'd also like to hear things like you're new to Sport bikes, and motorbikes in general,
and what is it? You're 16 y/o, right?

I'm not trying to rain on your parade here Chris.
But do yourself a favor and

DON'T try and come into a corner 'too hot' anymore.
I'd/we'd like to see you posting on here 5+ years from now.

We only recommend here Chris, we wont attack you like some forums do.
I myself stepped up fast in motorcycling, but all my friends were far more experienced than I was, so I pushed myself and always tried to impress the other cool guys. I definitely learned the hard way. I only recommend since I had a hard learning curve myself.

If you can get to a road racing track, the sooner the better. You learn there 10 times as fast as on th street in a controlled environment.

That's great, -I think?
If and when you get this 600- just CRUISE around for a while, a long while.
Don't try to wheelie it (not for a while, if at all).
Just cruise around- NOT pushing anything anywhere near the extremes- it'll still be fast, trust me.

When I'm on my LiterBike- I took it our last Saturday- it got up to the 60's!
I put the appropriate air pressure in my tires, and rode a bunch of twisties with up to 7 other sport bikes during the day- friends of mine that I knew.
While mine was one of the faster bikes of the group- I didn't ride it like I had to shoe that to anyone, etc.
I didn't push it, and had a really enjoyable day.

I'd like to see you do the same.

Still, You have to have some confidence too, even to cruise it around.
I hope you were trying to be humble when you stated:
'This may not be my best idea but i am doing it. Im not carrying the bs from the other forum onto this one.'

I'm not trying to bust your chops Chris, and most on the 'other forum' weren't either.

Stay safe young grasshopper,

Todd

I am fully aware this may not be a good idea, but it's the most logical imo and even my parents agree. I see many people wreck these bikes and I am going to ease into it and learn the bike. It's going to be my baby.

Personally, I'd look at something like an FZ6R. It looks fast, is faster than your 250, but isn't such a big step. And it's a 600.

And we've all been 16. It'd be your baby, but as soon as there are friends/girls that goes out the window. You weren't finished learning the 250. Honestly, I've been riding for 5-6 years and I'm not 100 convinced I should be on my 750.

Just my $0.02, if my kid wants a sports car I'd get him a mustang, not a Porsche. A V6 most likely. But whatever you get, wear your gear at least.

I've got TOTW 2 the book, but never saw the film.
Local youtube wont show it in search results.
Ok, what other secret links do ya have.

I learned from reading the book I have, it takes going back to the book time and again to have everything apply to your riding. Also, it's a book about pure basics of cornering, so they dont get into body position, and time has also changed riding style and body position.
Kenny Roberts was one of the first guys to ever ride knee down in the corners.
The new school guys have hanging out far to be the norm now as well as elbow down.
I remember the first time I saw the guys sticking their inside leg out while braking hard into a corner, I was all WTF.
But realized they do that to try to keep the bike leaned while braking hard since it likes to stand up. I think it's more of a preference to riding style. You dont see Lorenzo doing that.

The same information is in the movie and the book but I found the different presentation helpful.

Yes, they've bootlegged the movie on youtube for years. Someone puts it up, gets caught, and then someone puts it up again.

I bought the DVD for about $15 on Amazon and consider it money well spent.

I took two Code school classes last year and then watched the movie again last November. Again, the same information just in a different presentation.

I guess I need to see it at least three times before it sinks in.

99.999% is in that video.

They don't cover lane position. Think defensively when you pick a lane position.

Dress for the crash, not the ride.

When the throttle is cracked open at the beginning of the turn, it is applied smoothly and consistently throughout.

Keep all body parts out of the oncoming lane. Don't care how fun the turn is.

Practice low speed maneuvers in a parking lot.

When the throttle is cracked open...

What to know about the bike?

It's stupid fast. It'll get you a ticket on the highway in first gear. Well, the 750 will anyway.

It has no forgiveness for mistakes. If you keep your hands stiff and lock your arms when you ride, it will buck like crazy when you hit a bump cause of the throttle. If you "oh crap" the throttle in first gear, the front end will come up. Chopping throttle with the front wheel isn't the best idea, but if you stay loose it shouldn't throw you. Better to ease the front wheel down.

It makes enough power to slip the rear tire if you give it too much gas in a turn on cold tires and not cold tires if you're turning hard enough. If you freak and chop throttle, it will likely throw you over the top. (Hence the throttle mantra Keith Code pushes). It has no forgiveness for mistakes.

It's fun as hell. And you can learn to ride it. Just keep in mind the power to weight ratios are insane.

The secondary throttle body valve motor will likely go bad on you. They have weak solder joints. Search for "Bugmans GSXR" website and he has a how to fix it on there.
