Few questions on my bike.

Hello. Whats the top speed on a 06 gsxr 600?. I have searched but came up with anything from 120-170. Also, If you want to accelerate your bike as quickly as possible, how do you do it? Rev up to high rpms then take off in first. then max it out and on to all the other gears. Trying to keep the revs up high? Finally I was trying to lift my frontwheel off the ground today a little. I think i might of poped a small wheelie but i may have just taken the weight off the front wheel. IS the stock 600 capable of poping a wheelie easily? I tried to get up to high rpms in first. then let off the gas then hammered it back on and i think it lifted a little. Just trying to experiment and get comfortable. but alot of people say its not easy on a stock bike. What do you guys think? thanks

well if you are trying to get the most out of your bike then ya, you want to take each gear to the redline and get the most out of them.

you should top out around 150-160 depending on conditions.



I havent gotten my front wheel off the ground yet but damn near close... your gonna have to chop the throttle harder than you think to get that front tire up.
