Here's what I ride when the weather is nice..... The truck is for the other types of weather. LOL :thumbup

Cleaned both up and figured I'd add my own pics of my rides to the collection :wink

3 inches in the rear, 2.00 in the front (used a micrometer ~ they do come in handy!) ... I didn't like the feeling of teetering on my tip toes at the stock height. 3 inches is really too much in the rear, so I plan on raising it up a bit over the winter. That.. and getting the wheels red chromed w/ a polished lip. I can't ever leave anything alone. :)

yeah i know what you mean about being on your tip toe. I was going to lower it but didn't. Now, i'm just use to the height.

You should lower the front the rear the same height. And yeah 3 inches is to much!!! Have you tried shaving the seat?? I did about 2 inches, and there's more to shave off till you hit the plastic..

the weird thing to me is that your running pilot power race tires and you have a bike that is lowered to the point of being worthless... kinda doesnt make sense to me.

:myfault

I know.. But I bought the bike used... and it came w/ the race tires. Make sense now?

I wasn't comfortable @ the stock height so I lowered it. Been reading on shaving the seat so it looks like I'll be doing that and raising it back up. Thanks stphnman20 :thumbup

I could drag race it.... LOL... or drive it like a sane person on the street. I don't plan on taking it to any track days any time soon. Just used as a "recreational vehicle", like it says on my insurance :) .

I put 150 miles on it yesterday... So it's getting used well enough ;)

Looks good, not too much of a fan of lowered sport bikes, especially by that much! At least you'll raise it back up and looking into shaving your seat, which is cool. To each his own, but if I were you, make it look like it's supposed to look like and function. Get yourself some good gear and hit the track, you'll get hooked! I'm telling you bro, you'll love it when you'll give it a shot.

Are you using reflective vinyl, or is it Gator Glass? But yeah, like everybody else said, shave the seat, and get it back up to a height that ypu can put those Pilots to use.
