At the risk of incurring wrath
I'm trying to figure out how to "sportify" my K12Rs. I come from an aggressive sport riding background, and having finally accepted my age (or rather, having accepted my partner's demands to get something she can ride on the back of), I settled on this bike, and am pleasantly surprised that it offers plenty of power, is rock solid in the turns, and provides a seat she can comfortably ride along on.
I can't find any aftermarket parts (eg. rearsets) and have moved the stock footpegs to the "sport" position, and the bars to the most forward position. My problem is that it still feels as though my center of gravity is too far back and too high. When riding, if I rest my left arm on the flat part of the fairing below the bars, it feels more natural.
I'm wondering if it is possible to move the clip ons to below the top triple clamp. Has anyone done this?
Also, the controls are tilted back too far- putting my wrists in an uncomfortably "tilted back" position. I'm trying to figure out how to rotate them forward. There seems to be a set screw hidden somewhere?
Overall, I'm thrilled with this bike. It reminds me of my youth on a Z1R. I like the size, length, heaps of power, and really don't mind throwing the weight around- just would like to get a little more on top of it, so to speak.
Given its pedigree and heaps of power, I'm a little surprised no one has (apparently) found a way to strip weight and (gasp!) build an endurance racer...
Thanks in advance for any advice.
