Riding Height

I have a 2006 CBR 600RR. I've already lower and adjusted the forks. But still have problems being a little more flat footed. Any suggestions?

Not much foam on that seat as it is. I think Honda just put some vinyl over a piece of plastic on that bike!

Although I'm not a huge fan of it, you can lower the rear with an aftermarket suspension link, but I wouldn't go anymore than an inch.

We sell them, and if you've got the front lowered as well, it at least would restore your geometry somewhat.
Give me a shout Tuesday and I can get you a price, don't forget to let us know you're with MH when you call so you're MH discount.

I have the same problem on my bike. Pay attention to the ground when you stop/park. If you are not flat footed, you lose some traction. Watch for holes, uneven pavement and gravel.

Take all the air out of the tires... that's like another 2 inches...

After two inches you are sacrificing alot of performance on anybike... You may need to make due...

Wrd. Thats what I do. I noticed with the suzuki 600's I could just about flat foot. One thing you'll have to be careful with is when you carry a passenger thats over 120lbs. Won't lie, I got worried when making a U turn under a freeway once from a dead stop. got a little wobbly! LOL
