What year did gixxer 600's stop being carbie?

Discussion in 'Bike Reviews, Questions and Suggestions' started by N2O, Sep 24, 2006.

  1. So I'm looking at a gixxer 600 for the (near) future.
    Originally I was thinking brand spankin' new would be for me, but I'm starting to rethink. I think maybe a *slightly* older one. 1999, or 200 ?

    The question is: when did they change from carbie to injected?
    I think I would feel better riding a carbie, knowing it's got a little less power for my first 600.

    Or am I being too cautious?
  2. your being a sooky lala :p

    i'm looking at upgrade options at present too.
    I was looking at a GSX F 750, but was told its old technology, carbies as opposed to F I, so I have decided to look at the GSX R 600 for this very reason, I think fuel injection is the way to go.
  3. get efi for sure

    they came in 01 but you will find some carbed bikes sold as 01 as well (eg the corona scheme one)

    but the efi bikes look totally different to the carbed ones
  4. Go EFI. About the only + to having a carbie powered bike/car is that YOU can do the tuning of it yourself. EFI is smoother too.
