Sorry if its a repost but im not understanding how your actual mph will be thrown off if you change your sprockets since i thought there was a sensor in the front wheel.

No sensor on the front wheel, it's on the front sprocket. The speed sensor just reads front sprocket RPM and any gearing change or change in rear tire diameter will effect the accuracy of the speedometer. BTY stock they are off by 5 - 10 % Gear it lower, down in the front or up in the rear or a shorter tire that error will increase. This error can be corrected with a Speedohealer or YellowBox.

Get a Speedo Healer as soon as possible. Real easy to install and calibrate. Without it you will be adding extra mileage to the odo and it sucks to be doing math in your head while riding to figure out how fast the cop is clocking you at.

I don't know about the 600 rr, but certainly there is no front wheel sensor on gsxr's. Triumph's still do them, and my RT has both front and rear wheel sensors (front for the speedo, and front and rear for the ABS.)
