Do you all think I will fit? My inseam is somewhere around 35. I sat on one the other day and it seemed like my legs weren't in the grooves in the gas tank. Is it supposed to be like that. Is there anything I can do to change the leg position?

(This is my first post, Hi everyone!)

WELCOME DOOKIE, man u be a tall bastard. but there is one thing u can do to make it better for you. u can change the rearsets(shifter and brake foot pegs). if u buy some adjustable rearsets u can adjust them to fit u better.

Skidmark, cut your legs off at the knees and get shorter prosthetic appendages that hook directly into the controls. j/k man. you can try new rearsets that relocate up and back from stock or maybe try sitting further back in the seat and then hold yourself with your kness clamping the tank in the position that is more comfortable for you.

u would want to go back and down to make it more comfy for ya. if u just went back it would keep your legs bent a little to much.

rearset are the foot controls. yo ucan get them where they adjust in certain increments either further back or up from stock.
they look like this obviously.



These are Graves Adjustable Rearsets. yo ucan see the hole locations for mounting them.


Graves, Attack Performance, Gilles, Woodcraft CFM, PP Tuning are just some of the people that make rearsets.

I'll have to go to the dealer and ask the guys there. This would take away from cornering capability right?

they range all over the place in terms of price depending on what they are made out of, how adjustable they are, if components can be replaced after a crash. the woodcraft ones have replaceable footpegs and shit so if you lay it down and break one, you can easily replace it
