929 seat height

I hear for 01, the seat height was raised 5 mm, and the handle bars were lowered by the same amount. Has anyone lowered their seat height? I ride my bike a lot, and the only racing I'll do is drag racing on occasion. I've tried getting low enough to use the fairing a few times, and it's really uncomfortable for me. I think lowering the seat height an inch or 2 would help. Any thoughts?

Thanks.

Re: 929 seat height

all 929's were the same. Theres not a whole lot of seat untill you hit the sub frame..I doubt you'll ever get a couple inches...perhaps a bit if you shave the seat foam down a bit. They do make taller windscreens which might help.

I cant beleive that 5mm would make that much or any discomfort for a riding positon.. crap if you wore an extra pair of underware you would be raised up 5mm.

This is not the case. 00 and 01 929s have the same seat, clipons, and rearsets. They are basically indentical with only a few minor updates on the 01.
