Height of bike

Discussion in 'Bling and Appearance' at netrider.net.au started by dar_sbb, Feb 8, 2008.

  1. i have noticed that my bike it quite lower than other 250's. sitting on others, i can bearly touch the floor, but on mine i can sit flat footed with my knees bent. im around 5 7"

    is there an optimum height that i could set it to and if so will there be anything that i would need to change?

    plus how would performance change?

    thanks guys
  2. Weight? You could perhaps put your preload up if the back is bucking in corners.

    BUT, zx2r (and cbr250, fzr, etc.) are tiny even next to other 250s. Zzr250s look like 600s if you put it next to a cbr250rr!

    Not something to change other than preload.. thats assuming the bike hasn't been lowered for a shorter rider. Out of interest what other 250s are you comparing it to?
  3. ive been on a cbr250... i was more on my toes
  4. im 70kgs

    does adjusting the preload lift the bike?
