Recommended Posts

I would really like to know how bigger in height or weight riders change their style and bike.I feel really cramped and dont have alot of control when standing and also my foot/leg(inside leg) gets in the way when turing tight.tyler thanks

I'm 6'4" 245lbs. You can go to a higher bend on your bars to make it more comfortable and depending on the triple clamp set you can move them forward a little also(done both to mine). There is a mod that will drop your pegs a little and might give you more room as well. As for riding style just keep riding and practicing good technique and you'll become faster and more comfortable. The tips in here about where to put your weight, how and when to stand, how your elbows should be and all the others still apply. :cry:

I need taller bars myself, but thats going to be a winter project since I dont wanna screw up the feel this late in the game. Thats just me tho, it might make things better it might take time to get used to im not sure :cry:

:cry: Hey, Thats Me!

I'm 6'5" tall and 265 lbs. The biggest issue I had was how cramped to cockpit was. I invested in the 1" bar risers and the Desert Bend Renthals. NOW I have plenty of room!

I stiffened up the suspension next and WOW! What a difference, What a bike! It's totally different! :cry: And much better!

When I ride other peoples bikes, makes me fall in love with mine all over again! :cry:

It's funny, but I like the lower bend bars because they seem to get me back into that "race ready" central position faster and more naturally. Just me though. :cry:

Get the fastway footpegs and make them the low boy style and then adjust your brake pedal and shifter to match it
