    Thanks for the help everyone who didn't take the questions to heart
    Maybe you should have started on a smaller bike... We won't go down this road too far AGAIN but who told you a 600rr was a good first bike? I want to know just so I can call them idiots to their faces.

    My first bike was a 97 zx6r. I did just fine. Don't want to get into all this first bike discussion, but if you have any brain that function properly and are not 18 years old, a 600 CAN be your 1st bike.

    Lowering 03 CBR 600RR

    1997 ZX6r
    Peak Horsepower: 92 bhp at 12,000 rpm

    2003 600rr
    Peak Horsepower: 107.2 bhp at 13,500 rpm

    There is a slight difference.

    Slight difference indeed which wouldn't stop one from killing himself anyway.
    This is what I had in the 97 zx6r manual, same numbers as in Bikez.com ( I did copy/paste )

    1997 zx-6r
    Power: 105.00 HP (76.6 kW)) @ 12500 RPM

    2003 600rr
    Power: 117.00 HP (85.4 kW)) @ 13000 RPM

    Obviously power rated is at the crank.

    Lowering 03 CBR 600RR

    thanks for all the help everyone...the bike is already bought (even though Virtualbong was sad to see it go) and like I have posted before I sat on the bike and messed around with it when I brought it home and I am much more comfortable on it. The first time I went to look at it it was the first time I sat on a bike of its size so I guess you could say I was in awe haha.

    it's all good now and hopefully I will be around next season for some group rides and a couple track days.

    I checked this weekend, I have a set of lowering links for the 600RR if you're interested.

    It's all water under the bridge, and we do enter the next round-robin. Am I wrong?

    I don't think you understand how much I am missing it...thank God it's winter time and I wouldn't be able to ride it anyways and I just realized that I won't be able to use my dad's Integra (he totaled it the other week) as my winter beater, so I have to get snow tires for my G, which is going to drain my account...just when I thought I could start saving again...

    btw. I honestly think you will be fine on the bike. Just take it easy and don't go nuts on the throttle (I don't think you will anyways).

    I really wasn't referring to the power... I was referring to the size. A smaller sized first bike might have given him more confidence is all i am saying.

    Good luck with your ride dude, keep the shiny side up.
