Yeah I really don't mean to argue, cuz I know how internet arguments go, it's just that there's already enough bullshit and wrong information going around the web, and it really doesn't do anyone any good to have more out there so when someone makes some claim that's way wrong, regardless of it being on topic or not, I feel compelled to INFORM, not argue, the facts.

If I came out here and said "All kawasakis are green, because I've only seen green kawasakis", I would expect some dudes on the forum to correct my stupid ass for making such a dumb claim. We've all made wrong assumptions many times...the point is to learn. Personally I've learned a lot from others correcting me in the past when I assumed wrong things (not just bike related). The choice is yours if you want to go the same route, or be like the 18-year old kid I had in my MSF class this weekend who acted like he knew everything, but in fact was pretty clueless.

Cool thx man. You do have a lot of knowledge. Hopefully you have that kind of knowledge for a Zx6r because that's what I ride. CBR's as well. Definitely could pick your brain on both those models if I ever have a question.

A play on words, or words on play
Last chapter, verse in the final act
Words well scripted, each sentence choking
Inaudible gag, blanket which suffocates
As you eat another's words
Malnourished, you starve.

I don't think "huge" difference is the right term, but the extra displacement does make a difference. Having raced with a few people that have the 2013+ model, I noticed that I was never able to catch them on the straights even when I was coming onto the straight slightly faster. And my bike has a full exhaust, PCV with a custom fuel map. Some of the 636's I raced against had less than that.

So you are 4 inch's shorter than me and I've got 25 pounds on you.

No one has laughed yet at me. Well that I know of.
Several may cuss me while passing me, to date none have come to the pit's to tell me.
You will be fine.
