I have an 03' zx6r.I smoked a 00' gixxer 750 by about 2 car lengths. I won 250 dollars what a loser. Gixxers suck . All of that uncomfortableness and no power.

Nice kill. [^]

BTW, GSX750Rs are nice bikes, you must have been a better rider than he was. Gixx750 are a nice balance of power and handling.

Well wow, good job if you beat a 750, but I gotta argue with ya on one point... Gixxers have "no power"??? Seems to me the 750 Gixxers are one of the fastest motorcycles on the planet. Torquier than a 600 for sure too, even the 636 rocket you're riding, and they rev out almost like a 600... BIG power in fact.

But it's all rider rider rider on launches, and 600's are just plain easier to launch than big bore bikes, I've proven it repeatedly.

A buddy of mine (2001 6R) and I (my last bike a '98 6R) beat a Gixxer 1000 in a 1/4 mile race SOUNDLY because of the huge holeshot we pulled on him off the launch. It's even hard for a big bore bike to make up that kinda difference on the start, especially when they start lofting the front end overdoing it trying to catch up.

I like to look at it this way... if you drive a big-bore superbike and you race a 600, you really can't win. If you win, well DUH, you should have. And if you don't... oh man you'll hear it... heh...

(and for the record, on standing starts I have a VERY good record against big-bore bikes. Roll ons ... well, okay not very good...)

Can't wait to see how my NEW ride does against 'em...

I agree with dj wholeheartedly on this one. It is very much the rider who makes the difference. However, I do think that after we get our modifications made to the 636, it will be all the tastier to eat them with! LOL
