Hi there guys how you all doin? I recently just bought a 2006 CBR600RR which I am absolutely loving atm! My mate just bought a 2008 GSXR600. We are both pretty evenly matched when it comes to riding ability and the bikes are very evenly matched...we can't really see who is quicker. What I wanted to know is what could I do to ensure I pump him...lol...other than a slip on pipe? Would changing the sprockets do the trick and if so which combination should I go for? Any help is much appreaciated.

Cheers, Joe :)

I don't really condone making your bike faster just to be able to beat your friend because then you guys are just going to start racing, but...

sprockets....down in the front or up in the back will take away top speed but will give more torque and quicker accel.

slipon...for best results, get a PCIII (or some other fuel management) to go with it and then a tuned fuel map for your bike for best results

if you get a PCIII you can get a few add-ons for it

There are plenty of other things you can do, but those are the easiest

Go one tooth down on the front sprocket and never tell your buddy. He wont be able to tell anything is diff by looking at your bike but you will walk him every time. :devil:

So one tooth down on the front sprocket only...don't touch the back one? How will this affect the bike? It will take off quicker right? Is that all or will I also have an advantage on rolling starts?

One tooth down in front is about equal to 2.5-3 teeth up in the back depending on what the stock ratio is. It will make the bike accelerate quicker but you will loose a little bit of top end. You just race him, pull far ahead and then let off before he has a chance to top his bike out all the way and find out he has a couple of mph more on top.

its not like we race to top speed anyway...400m is enough to prove the point...i don't hardly ever wrap it out to top speed if ever so it would prob be better since most of my riding is around that speed anyway.
