I'm aiming to move up to a gixxer 750 in a year or so.
How come you had three of em if they were rubbish?

That's comes as no suprise to me about the size between the gixxer 600 and R6, as the height of the R6 is 40mm higher, 850mm seat height.

As I am a shortie the R6 felt too high for me.

Millebb..

Great choice mate, but i think the 600 is a bad idea and a waste of your money.

I did the exact same 6 years back, had a '98 ZX6-R and loved it. Upgraded to the Gixxer750 and still have this bike, it now has 55,000 miles on it and is going strong.

The reason I went for the 750 was cos i felt that I was really beginning to have to ring the neck of the 6R to get it to do what i wanted and so 750 was the obvious choice as i felt, and still do that buying a 1000cc superbike for UK roads is a waste of money, you will NEVER use all that power on the road. I've got 2 Gixxer750's.. a K1 & a K6 and i love 'em both.

I'd go straight for the 750 now bud, why you need a year on a 600 when you've had one for ages?? Good luck anyway mate and ride safe

:biggrin:
