More importantly, what's the best oil?
And, should I get the 1k or the 600.
I've ridden dirt bikes all my life and don't want to get bored with a tiny 600 in just a few months.

Gsxrs take special oil. synthetic oil with gold flakes mixed in. If u add a little redbull to the mix, it'll give u 50 extra hp......and wings!

Get a 1000, just keep it in c mode. It's just like riding a 600 : shifty hahaha

Redbull? negative. NOS energy drink is where it's at, or so I've heard...

Re: whats the diff if u change sprocket sizes

Changes the speedometer and mileage depending on the size difference. bigger rear sprockets are usually used to get the front up easier mainly used for stunting some not so big may be used for dragging, and smaller rears for mileage, and more top speed.

So am I a drag racer or a stunter?. I use from 42-46 tooth rears and 15-16 front.

Odometer changes are negligeable btw.

Lets do some simple math here.

First off, we will forget the fact your odometer is already 10% off from the factory, which means my numbers will be even larger than the average person simply making the change.

After a sprocket change, lets say it is 15% off. So for every 100 miles you go, your odometer gains 15miles. For 1000 miles, that is 150 miles. 5000 miles that is 750 miles. For 10,000 miles that is 1500 miles added that werent there.

Do you think at any one of those mile points the mileage added negatively effects the bikes value by any significant amount?

Would you buy a 3000mi bike for a given price, but pass on a 3750mi bike for the same price?

How about a 10kmi bike vs an 11.5k bike?

Nope. Not me

It is negligible in that sense.

take out the initial ten percent you have stock anyway, and those numbers get WAY smaller. 5%.

At 10k miles you get 500 miles off due to the 5% added by the sprockets as compared to the average stock bike.

Do you keep certain responses saved in Microsoft Word so you can just copy and paste them when needed?

I gotcha. The numbers I had in my head were about the same as you said. And youre right, from a reselling view those are small. The example I had in mind was our trip to Indianapolis. At the end of the trip my motorcycle read over 100 miles more than my dads Goldwing. It made me say what the hell till I remembered the sprocket change. Comparing the two bikes on the trip it seemed big to me, but not from a value sense like youre saying
