Just bought first bike, 01 CBR F4I
I know how to ride, but don't know how to work on a bike. What should I do first?
I got smoked by a new R1- **** those are fast!
How do i reprogram the Power commander?

Having owned a CBR 600 and being the current owner of a 2004 R1, I can tell you exactly what to do....sell the bike and buy an R1...

You need a busa to catch a R1

For real man, you can make your bike faster, hell you can make it really fast. I would start with learning how to ride it, I mean really ride it. If you plan on drag racing it, then learn how to start of the line, how to control power fluxes, etc. If you plan to road race the you need to be practicing the turns, etc. You can have a slower bike and smoke a faster one just by being able to control it. In a straight race you will never beat an R1, ZX-10, Busa, or any other liter bike for that matter.
Ride your bike for a while, enjoy it, then upgrade when you are ready. I'm willing to bet the money in my bank account that the guy on the R1 cannot ride it to it's full potential (or any other bike for that matter)

aren't the busa's primarily for drag racing and less for cornering? i could be wrong but i thought the longer swingarm in the back was to keep the front end down under heavy accelaration?

The only reason I wanna get an R1, is because im 6'3 currently around 220lbs and while its still easy to do wheelies and such on 600's, itll be even that much easier for me at my weight on a 1000.
Congrats on the purchase, BTW

I had a 600RR and it was sweet. I also don't ride to race but just like relaxing. Don't get me wrong I like to haul ass every now and then and when some rice rocket car wants to rev I have to smoke him, but I just like to cruise. I have ridden with a few guys that have busas, and the main problem with them that makes them not as nimble on the street is they are so freakin heavy. I rode with a guy that had a 1300 and he could ride it to the max. Needless to say he was a big boy though.
