    You did an AWESOME job on the write up. If I hadn't already muddled through it myself (+ hubby), this would have been a BIG help. Your pictures are concise and easy to understand, and your instructions and explanations are perfect.

    BTW, I noticed 3 Costco sized litter pails in your garage pics, how many cats do you have?

    Oh, and thanks for the props earlier, I'm glad I could help. As a note, I have found the riding position with the 3/4" front drop to be very comfortable and it feels smoother and more stable in turns (to me).

    Thanks! I was glad to do it and hope that it helps someone out there. Initial response from Roaring Toyz was really good.

    That is excellent news! Michele has yet to complain about it so I'm guessing she is really happy with the outcome. I also put on a set of SW-Motech 1" bar risers for her too which helped her reach and made her sit a bit more upright. I really think, that with a more comfortable seat, she'd be 100% happy with it.

    I've had a thought about that, depending on which part is uncomfortable. For the cushion, I thought I could get some gel inserts, like for shoes, and put them in under the shell to add some squish.

    I haven't needed it since I got the Corbin, but does anyone think it might work?

    I had a gel seat on the FZ6 once. It didn't last long.

    When it got hot, it stayed VERY hot. When it got cold, it was hard as a rock and stayed cold.

    Better plan would be to remove "some" stock foam and replace with twice the thickness in memory foam.

    Got my girls bike lowered and I must say it made a big difference for her. She can flat foot it now and feels alot more confident and comfortable

    Has anyone had any negative experience with the Roaring Toyz lowering kit, or lowering in general. I am considering it with my days old FZ6R but have heard bad things about lowering with links and with sliding the forks up the triple tree.
    Thanks!

    I LOVE the lowing link. It has made my ride less stressful for me. Knowing that when I have to come to a stop I will be able to actually touch both feet to the ground is a GREAT feeling.

    I actually like the ride better with the bike lowered.

    Nothing negative from my wife about it. Same as xpoldnstar's experience, all positive and she is much more confident on the bike now. It's a simple but very effective product!
