Buying R6. my height about 169 to 170 only.
Its disappointing, the R6 seating height is about 3.5inches taller than my previous ride, cbr400. About 9cm taller. The R6 seat height is about 33.5inches, Cbr400rrr is 30inches.
Hate it, cant 2 foot down at junction. only 1 leg half tip toe at most with the bike slightly tilted.
Not much confidence with the ride tho i like it.
Im thinking of lowering the seat height to about 30.5 to 31inches. Shaving seat foam at most is 0.5inches. What else can I do? Anyone know any shop good in this area and have experiences in lowering their tall bikes before?
I understand that the geometry may be affected if i lowered the bike and i may have to lean more when turning. But I have always been used to doing so with cbr400, its turning radius is already incredibly small..
