I say listen to your instincts. If you feel a 750 may be too much for you, then it likely is. I certainly would not reassure you that you can handle a 750 as I don't know you or your riding ability. Follow your instincts and you wont go wrong.

If you get a 750 doesn’t it have the a,b,c switch to gear it down? And for anybody that has a newer 600 does that have a a,b,c switch and does it gear it below s 600?

I felt the same way when I bought mine. I realized I wanted the 750 just bcuz it sounded better than 600. LOL

I am very happy with my 600 and its performance. I'd just stick with a 600 personally.

If you are even a halfway responsible rider than a 750 would not be too much to start on. This has been debated to death but definately listen to your instincts.

Like I was told in the beginning, they are all fast enough to get a ticket or get hurt if youre irresponsible.

Maybe if you posted a picture of yourself it would help us gauge better which CC bike to reccomend.

Really though, I've got a k8 600 and a k8 750, i'm a 6'4" tall guy that weighs in fully leathered and geared up at about 300 lbs. I'm happy with the 600 as well as the 750. Neither of them are slouches, and both are more bike than I ever use on the street....legally. If you were more comfortable on the 600, then stick with it. I'm sure it won't disappoint you. If you get the 600 and in a year decide that you want a 750, I'm sure you wont come out of a trade too badly. You can always trade up to a larger CC bike when your comfortable, you can't trade down to the smaller bike when you get into a situation that having a bigger bike that you aren't comfortable on can get you into.

Now as for the guy that suggested the A,B,C mode switch...I would not rely on that lil' decrease in fuel and timing to make you comfortable on a bike. The day will come when you forget the switch, feel you can handle it, and it may bite ya.

My question is can you lift up a 750 easily?

My 600 gsxr 06 cannot wheeling like my old CBR could ,its more front weighted..

Can you powerwheelie the 750 up easily?

Only way I could ever wheelie is using engine power.

She's been riding for 2 years and isn't even sure if she's ready for a bigger bike. I don't think she can answer your questions. Wrong thread dude

stick with a 600, you're a girl :p
What does that have to do with it? My neighbor rides a repsol 1000 and does it quite well I might add. Gender has nothing to do with it.

Good call I left mine on the C mode for a while until i got used to it. Then you can bump it up when your ready.
