First couple of Mods
Hello everyone! VohrteFahrt here again.
This time I want to discuss mods. I am not looking for anything like turboes or HP gain, just ergonomics etc. On top of that I am planning on modifying me (aka track days, skill riding courses, etc). I was just wondering what else people typically do to their bike for street use? In the meantime I want to make this bike... a little more... me.
My bike has an aftermarket slip on. I will get a full system later in the year or next year unless a really great deal comes my way. Looking at Arrow, IXIL, Yoshi, Akrop. I will be on the prowl for a PCV or equivalent for when the time comes. I think the gearing is fine as well I don't foresee me doing any sprocket or chain changes (until life of chain needs replaced anyway).
I want to raise the bars slightly, any advice, or tips? The seat was comfortable enough that after about 150 miles I was only a little sore in my legs. This was due to the new riding position of the zx6r compared to my old 300. I did notice a little but of my right wrist was stiff and bothering my towards the end. That is most likely from holding on for dear life as I got used to the power and delivery of the 4 cylinder motor.
Back to the bars, I think that higher bars might help with my wrist as well? maybe? What about Shorty levers are they a must? I have medium-small hands (they're a little too big for small nitrile gloves but the mediums are just a little loose). The bike did not come with a manual or anything. How hard is it to adjust the front levers? (I already adjusted the angle.)
For suspension the Dealer offered $60 for a full suspension setup to me. Is this worth it? Something I can do myself? I have a lot of different tools so unless a special Fork tool is needed I should have the right bits, allen wrenches, etc.
Thank you in advanced. Sorry again for the Long post.
TLDR; Ergonomic mods? Handle bar risers? Any experience with Suspension tuning?
