I just posted on my 03 gsxr 600 not having enough power and got a great response to boost my power but just as that gent explained its going to cost wayyyyyyy to much. so I need some advice from some who have jumped to the 750 or higher. I want to trade my 600 plus some cash for a 1000 because I think the 750 is too little of a jump and ill get board really fast. but I don't want to die pushin it too quick any suggestions

You hit the nail on the head there. If you go to the 750 how long will it be before you think "i wish i had a 1000"

True the 1000 can be a bit intimidating but you need to ride accordingly, at least at first.
There is a gadget fitted to the right hand side of the bars, you may have come across it whilst riding, dont twist it so far and you will be fine:eek:

I think the K8 onwards have a power mode selector, you can set it to A, B or C which changes the throttle response, A is 100% B is around 75 and C is 50 power, from what I have heard from owners the 1000 is a bit on the heavy side, so it's not as nimble round corners and town as the 750, all depends on how and where you plan on riding it I guess, but personally I would go for the 750 as I would prefer the agility over power.

ive gone the other way, just swapped my gen 1 hayabusa for a k1 gsxr1000, so for me its much more nimble on the twists, and the speed and power feel pretty similar if not better for the lighter weight. go for the 1000 and just take it steady until your sure of it, then have some fun.

ride safe, ride fast, and don't get caught
