after my last big off when racing the i realised that broken bones don't heal the same when you get older so i decided to pack it in.
with doing so i was on the look out for a good all round proper sports bike for the road & the odd track day.
I have previously owned a blade, 3 r6's, 1 gsxr K1 750, zxr 750, R1, Mille r, and loads of off road stuff.
I ended up buying the K6 750 due to all the good reports i'd read, and how right they was.
The 1st thing to change was the rear sets, (diamond £160) then i went down 1 gear the front sprocket, and fit a pair of supercorsa's (which i used when racing) then went to oulton park (trackday) to put it through its paces.
The first big issue was the suspention by the end of the day it was dialed in to its hardest settings and it was squatting coming out of some corners.
so i had the front & rear resprung and revalved to my weight. as i'm now riding on the road i didn't want to spend a fortune on ohlins shocks ect so i had the suspension set for fast road riding with enough left to dial in when on the track.(£450 kias suspension)
Mid range was a bit poor so i also bought a full leo de vince race system bargain (ebay USA £370 delivered) power commander k&n filter again from the USA. Dyno'd at rocket center blackburn (£145).
next a track day at angelsey (great ciruit now revamped)
OH my GOD what a difference i had to dial in the suspension a little for the track but no big deal.
I can not beleive the difference this exhaust system made to this bike.
the stock cat must restrict the bike no ends.
Bare in mind i've been racing sports bikes for many years with ohlins this and ohlins that all set up for me by people that know what there doing.
This bike is great straight out of the crate
for the road and the track the best there is in my opinion.
little tweaks here and there like front sprocket 1 gear down and the suspension setting up make a big difference.
but a full system, power commander, air filter and dyno make this bike an awesome machine. A 1000cc bike in a 600 chasis.
the finish on the suzuki's are not as good as your honda's keep the metalwork clean and lightly oiled (wd40) as it can fur up quite easily. WHO KNOWS MAYBE WE WILL SEE A CBR 750rr ONE DAY!!!!
