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.

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.

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.
