Is this your first bike? How much riding experience do you have?

You definatly don't need anything over a 600. It will take years of riding before you can evern remotely outride a 600. You hear a lot of people saying they want something bigger because they are tired of the bike, but that just means that they don't know how to ride as good as they should.

thank you for you help. would you also know really good places to look for parts for the 600. a guy i work with has a gsxr 1000. guess what, it was his first bike he owned, wrecked it the first week he got it. i think he said he hit a puddle of oil. he has been riding for years on his friends bikes before he bought his own.

What kind of parts are you looking for, Cosmetic? Performance?

A little bit of both, defenitely an undertail. But i guess mostly performance. I like the yoshimura exhaust systems. i also saw online somewhere a yoshimura engine management system, but they didnt have what bikes it worked on and it directly pluged into the ecu. but to simply answer the question mostly performance.

well you can go to yosh's website, to research info on that, gsxrzone.com(i think thats the site) has a lot of motor mods. Indysuperbikes.com kneedragger.com have stuff. Umm, I'll try to list some more when I get home.

Have you taken the Motorcycle Safety Course? If not, I would suggest that, or trying to find somebody with a small streetbike that would let you practice.
And know this, There are two types of riders, those who have wrecked, and those who are going to. Your going to wreck sooner or later, some people do it the first day, first week, or maybe not ever for 5 years, but it still happens. I rode for two years before my first wreck.

I would really suggest taking the time to take the class, you will learn a lot and they will teach you stuff that you might never think of, and you also get to learn on somebody else's bike.
