Default From F4i to 600rr :)

Currently i ride a 02 F4i....
Last week i came across a almost mint 05 600RR with only +/- 7000 miles on it...
Yesterday i went by the shop and to my suprise it wat still there.. needless to say i traded in the F4i

Picking up the 600RR next weekend.

On my F4i i have a Leovince SBK, which happens to be on the 600RR also...
Does anyone now if the silencer for the F4i SBK will fit the RR?

First thing i'll be doing is removing the rear pegs, and relocating the rear fluid reservoir. I've been using the search option and came up with two ways;

brembo 15cc/ml remote w/45 degree spout
rear brake remote reservoir mod : Honda CBR 600RR Sportbike Forum : 600RR.Net

Or the "G-Craft" reservoirs, which looks way more stealthier but i cant seem to find them for sale anymore?
What to do w/ rear brake reservoir? - Page 2 : Honda CBR 600RR Sportbike Forum : 600RR.Net

Does any one know where to get these, or happen to have one left over?

Ebay would be the place to get them.

Non for sale there....
I'll go with the brembo reservoir instead.

Any thoughts on the exhaust?

I'd just use Tygon tubing. It's cheaper and I think it looks cooler.


On my 600rr, I had a no-name can on it that sounded great. Everyone commented on it. It's mostly about personal preference though. I'd get the can that you like the most. Any end can is going to do about the same for you as far as performance. Some of them stick out pretty far beyond the tail light - I didn't like those.

Yeah, problem is when going on track it can't produce more then 94/97db depending on which track.

The RR I bought doesn't have the silencer with it and on the f4i I did need it.

I'll wait till I get the bike and take it to the shop to measure the db's.

Thread title was misleading, I thought you meant the F4i was greater than the 600RR. Having owned both, I would've had to disagree, although my wife wouldn't since the banana seat on my '04 was much more comfortable than the high-back on my '09 RR.

Good luck on making the jump and do post pics!

Yeah the title means the F4i is better, which it is depending on what you want to do.

So traded in the F4i and picked up the RR:

Not completely stock, it has a leovince slip on, SS brake lines, and dark Puig windshield.

First ride home was a 150km high way run and i noticed it accelerated way better then my old F4i....
Took a good look when i got home and noticed a 47T rear sprocket.... didn't look at the front yet since i didn't have the time to take the front cover off.

Stock is 16/42 right?

Also the bike has Pirelli Diablo Rosso (2010) on the rear and Rosso Corsa on the front.
Does anyone have any experience with them?
Maybe its the new bike but the rear seems to slide around way more then the Dunlop Sportsmarts i had on the F4i.

Nice 600rr. I had those exact tires on my 954. In the dry, I loved them. Very predictable, they didn't slide unless I wanted them too, and they seemed to do pretty well mileage wise.

In the rain, I thought I was going to die the first time.... The rear would inconsistently break free. I didn't feel like I could lean at all...


I think its because on my previous tires I could lean a bit more on them in the rain. But I never did get used to them, I ended up taking them off and selling them. The guy who bought them was going to use them as a track day tire....
