Hey guys , just found this site and I am going to be buying a 2006-07 FJR with-in a month as soon as I find a good used one . My question is since I am vetically challenged at 5 ft 6 I need to know if there are any lowering links that I can install so both my feet are on the ground . I have my heart set on this bike and just went into a dealer and sat on one, and with the seat at the lowset setting I only can have one foot planted (not good) since I plan on getting my wife involved in rideing . My last bike was a Ducati 900ss and never took her out . She really wants to tour. Thanks for any help you can throw my way .
I feel your pain. See my post "New to Site". I received several responses from that one.
Keep in touch with me on your progress. I'm now trying to sell my '07 Honda Shadow 750 & searching for '07-'08 FJR.
The Kouba links would be ok, but the corbin seats are not the most comfortable if you have the bucks a Russell Daylong Saddle is about as low as you can get and your wifes butt will love it mine did when she road from Ca. to Florida where I live and that was the first seat that she could ride any distance with me. I tried 3 different seats
On my recent trip to the Dragon spent 15 hours in the saddle the first day 750 miles, 2000 miles in 5 days total round trip and no butt issues with the Corbin although I have heard that some find it a little firm. Iwill say that it does have be broken in. I also got to try the Russell on an FJR from Texas that I met and it put me wayup too high for my liking though it was comfy. YMMV.
