    Lowering the suspension, lower foot pegs bonus.

    Just like to add, i have not had the seat height issue of some of you guys as i could touch the floor easily with standard seat at the low position , but i was looking at the lower foot pegs to no avail, to ease the knee being to bent up, so i went out and bought the Lust Racing lower bars and have not lowered the front end at all and to my amazement i can now raise the seat height to the higher setting and put both feet on the deck flat and alleviated a lot of the knee problem, because the seat height is doing the opposite of lower foot pegs and the bike handles better than ever.
    Hope this helps :001:

    I am sure there would be quite a decent demand for these. If you could let me have the dimensions I could look into the feasibility and cost  of getting a batch made and collect enough pre orders to go ahead , assuming you didn't want to do this yourself. Either way I would like to try a set.
    Cheers

    Honestly, if I had long legs, lowering links wouldn't be the way I'd go about getting more legroom.  I have the Lust Racing lowering links on mine.  While I appreciate being able to get better footing at stops and feel the bike handles acceptably well, I am on the fence about putting the stock links back on.   I'm gonna ride it as is for a little, then swap to the stock link to compare.  Then I'll see which way I'd go.
