how do you lower height of fjr1300?
I am 5'9" and i feel the bike is controlling me rather than me controlling the bike. Is there anyway to lower the height of my FJR 2013 ?
All kidding aside, there are a number of ways to get the feet down. If you use lowering links (I did), you can either get the sidestand foot cut off and re-welded to length (I did), or grind a small
bit from the sidestand stop, so the sidestand can swing slightly farther forward. The welding job was cheap. Do not fill the gas tank more than half-full for a while; the FJR is top-heavy enough without a full tank to make things worse for you. Keep the bike very vertical when paddling around in a parking lot; once the bike goes a little too far over, no rider can stop the drop. Do not park anywhere that you will need to back out. Park where you can ride out going forward. Links:

P.S. Life is too short, and health is too valuable, to ride on cheap parade-duty tires.
