What about that seat...

They'll offer a more aggressive seat though right? Just a little more?



Please




I like um low but thats LOW...




Need to get this pretty thing between my legs as soon as possible

I def agree lol. Awesome bike no doubt but that seat height though... I litte more aggressiveness by raising it a little higher wouldn't hurt I guess. That's around the same seat height as a honda cbr125r.

seats fine for the size of the bike. real clip-ons that lower the bars and rearsets that move the pegs up and back would do the trick. woodcraft and Driven will handle both those in short order.

From what I understand, the seat is relatively low seat height of 30.7 compare to ninja 30.9". You either can lower your whole frame using a Lowering Linkage or just shaved the seat lol...But you really have to be like 5' 4" or less to worry.

Seat is fine I guess, making it a tad taller wouldn't hurt, but that being said, you're right about the clip ons and rearsets. Im already drooling in all the mods I'll do to this little baby. Would make an awsome little track bike for beginner riders like me.

I don't know if R3 will take traditional below the yoke clip on's. From the pics it seems like there is not enough clearance from the fairing..

Yea, instead of clip ons that go under it'll probably have clip ons that go an inch and a half forward/inch lower than the original handle bars like this ninja here. So you'll still get that more agressive riding position. Its still not like a real supersport but its a pretty cool mod to have.

they may fit above the triple clamp just like the factory ones. with no rise on the clip on you may get a 2 inch drop. the pic above is another option

with the bar adjustment you may not even need to alter the pegs, especially if you go for something like @Riduhh posted, would move you forward maybe an inch, spead you out slightly more, which should push your bum a bit more back...

Hey @Ridduh any Idea where I can pickup a set of clips like that?

I have heard NOTHING but good things about these...
raises the stock seat 1.5"... Puts it in R-6 seat height territory...
I will be getting one next year...
They also do custom colors and materials...

Heh, and here I am trying to lower the seat height so I can get into a lower tuck.
