I correct myself.. the 08 600's ARE different than the 750's but your information is still wrong and you should edit that the 08 600 is in fact DIFFERENT. Not that any of this is super important but i just thought i'd point it out.

gixxer 1 K mode

I've had my gixxer 1K approx 4 months now. Before I rode it off of the lot I asked that it be set in A mode and so it was. My question is, how do you know if it is set in A B or C mode. The indicator on my bike shows the A B and C modes to the right of the RPM gauge but that is it. As I switch trough the modes there are no arrows or highlighted indicators. Unfortunately my manual flew out of my backpack on the first ride home ( I was a little excited). In short, how do I know what mode I am in and can I switch through the modes while riding ?

No , it does not tell me what mode I am in. As I rode home yesterday I flicked through the modes and neither felt a difference or saw any change in the instrument display. Should the display at least show the A B & C letters ? Mine is just a blank three squares. Perhaps I have a faulty cluster on my bike.... ?

^^ Yes, your DMI should tell you what Mode you are in. It should not be blank. If you are changing the Mode while riding and it fails to change the display should blink. The Owner's Manual instructs you to turn the bike off (In order to reset the Drive Mode) and start over again.



JK750 is correct about the power output in A, B and C Modes. The "B" Mode ONLY applies to lower throttle settings. At higher throttle settings it is the same as "A" Mode. (Although I believe the power in "B" Mode comes on as strong as "A" Mode much sooner than WOT.)

"C" Mode provides softer throttle responses than "B" Mode at all throttle opening range by reducing engine power."

Just for clarification...

The default mode is A. Everytime you kill your bike it will automatically be in "A" when you restart.

When I said that it should show you what mode you are in I was refering to when you are trying to make a different selection outside of the default "A" Mode.

If you just start your bike and ride it without messing with the selector then it will not show you what mode you are in. Just know that you are in "A".

Your correction is duly noted and I will change the opening post to reflect the difference. If there's one thing I can't stand it is incorrect infomation.
The K8+ GSXR600 and Hayabusa DMS mapping is different from the 750/1000 DMS mapping as you described.

For the K8 GSXR 600 and K8 Hayabusa:

A mode is full power

B mode is less power than A at all rpm and throttle

C mode is less power than B at all rpm and throttle.



The 750 and 1000 DMS settings are as previously described in this thread. :cheers

Now, end of discussion. :D

I have a 09 600,I cannot tell any difference in the A and B modes.Dealer said C would be good for adverse conditions but I haven't tried it.I doubt I will ever use the mode feature.I hope people don't think its going to tame the bike for them.I agree its a marketing ploy.
