Feet on the ground

Postby oxenton » Tue Aug 21, 2018 9:35 pm

Well, here I am; another newby asking the same question that's been asked 100s times; trouble is, I can't find it !

So here it comes again. At 5'7" I want to lower it enough to plant both feet (at the same time) firmly flat on the ground. I've done this on my 900 Diversion, but the GTS is (or at least feels) even top heavier. I'm a weed so I'd never pick it up ! Besides the Diversion I've also got a FZR1000 exup, but of course you sit in that bike, not on it, so no probs there. (Hope the GTS goes as well).

So my question is, can the suspension links be changed, are they available, and will they lower by at least. 1 1/2" ?

Thanks gentlemen and ladies for your tolerance; I look forward to whatever comes forth.

Lowering the rear will make the steering even heavier than it is.

I've raised mine to quicken it up, so be careful what solution you apply: you may improve the feet situation to make the steering worse.

Might be better to look at a custom seat - contact Tony Archer.
