adjustable rear sets

Ive been told I'm too short, I do have a hard time hugging the gas tank with my knees and even shifting. Just wanted to know if adjustable rear sets are a good idea and any other feed back on them.

Ithink vortex would give you one position higher than stock and two positions rearward. Try some heli bar risers also to get your hand position higher and closer.

^^Bar risers bring the bars back and a little higher but just slightly. they don't affect suspension or your legs. I just imagined if your that short you may also have a hard time reaching over the tank. Google heli-bars and you'll see how they work, those in conjustion with a higher foot position could drastically improve your comfort level on the bike if it's a stretch currently.

Rearsets may help.
You may also just need to adjust your shift lever and brake pedal.
If you swing by we can adjust them at no charge. At the same time we can evaluate whether rearsets would help.

Then he needs to expand his company. Plenty of out-of-Houston customers itching for something better than a Woods Fun Center (the Austin area shop) sort. That place sucks. They have great products but a poor staff.

Yup, you that famous, Patrick.

but....

Shave the seat and get some boots with a thick sole and that will get rid of some of the height. at least an inch or so.
