You'll crash just as quickly on any of them. Enjoy.

Doesnt really matter. 929 was a preffered stunter for a while, cause its so light, and f4i's are a favorite cause parts are cheap for them. If you really want to get into stunting I recomment a dirtbike. seriously.

You're right, that was a bit harsh. Not being a stunter myself, I couldn't give you personal advice. However, I have seen many people doing wheelies, stoppies, and many other stunts on just about every "new" ('03-'05) 600 sportbike. If it's dedicated, you'll probably end up changing sprockets, and I'd imagine a cage/sliders & 12 bar would be likely additions.

I would take Vash's advice though.

Good luck, and do yourself a favor: invest in some gear.

R6 is the way to go. My buddy has an '06 f4i and he has alot more trouble getting his to stand up. Its too heavy with not enough low end power.

Any 600 is going to stand up if you tach to about 7 and throw it all the way down though. As for stoppies... don't even try it until you get at least 1 or 2 seasons in!

whata? who is this guy? f4i wont do wheelier? what a bunch of crap. Tell you buddy to get more practice, he just sucks. and it may be hard to imagine, but a great many people find stoppied easier than wheelies. I did. besides, if you crash a stoppie, at least you wont be going as fast.

I'm telling you... I have riden alot of bikes. Busa, R6/1, F4/F4i, Katana and the r's are the way to go. The F4i just feels way to bulky and the balance point is non-existant when trying to ride out a wheely. Besides the F4i is a hell of alot slower at the strip!!

As for doing stoppies... I would agree they are alot easier to pull of but they are also alot easier to drop (at least in my experience)!

Have you considered that you are most used to the R6 and that is why its easier for you? I got a buddy that rides the crap out of wheelies on an sv650, talk about underpowered.
