I know on our board here on SBW we have a guy on an 03ZX6r. In fact that is his screen name, drop him a PM. He is a big dude. In fact, he is bigger than you. He rides it ok.

Personally, I would do the RC-51. I love that bike!!

I wouldnt trade mine for anything, i know its definately not the top performer or the most comfortable but its got soul.....plenty of torque and hp. Im 6ft 240lbs and it fits me just fine no real unusual aches or pains.With a nice set of pipes and a power commander its all you could need on the street plus some.Hope you like setting off car alarms from the rumble, i refer to it as my hot rod, kinda like a muscle car of bikes with the sound. later

I'm 6'01" 195lbs on a CBR600RR. I looked at a pic of me on it and I thought I looked sorta big for it. But........when I ride it, it fits great.

I'm 6' @ 210 lbs, and my 600 has never had "too little power" for me. No complaints about the size. But you should see me on my wife's Ninja 250!

Well i own an RC-51 as well, works fine on my 6ft1 230lbs.
get a used one with some sato's & a PC3 drop a tooth in the front and you are set.....
They are going for cheap these days.

I am buying a new 600 to add to the stable but i like the monkey on tricycle feel.

How it fits...

I'm 5'11" 325 and the only thing I need to do to my bike is adjust the front forks.
