Hi Guys, a couple of weeks ago, my wife and I bought a 2005 model VTR250. We mostly bought the bike as my wife was having difficulty with the size of the BMW G650GS we had originally bought to do our L's/P's on (the bike is fine for me, but too heavy to begin with for my wife.. that and we are still waiting for a lower seat to come in from germany.. 8 weeks later) My wife really likes the size and weight of the VTR250, though she has a bit of a bad back, and doesn't like hunching over (a reason we bought the enduro style bike to begin with). She is only 5ft3, and i am 6ft.. when i have ridden the bike i have always felt cramped over the fuel tank and that the bars are way too short. We went to a HART course over the weekend, and they were running the EFI version of the VTR250 (2009/2010 i am guessing). I loved it.. it was comfortable and actually gave me a lot of confidence... Jumping back on our VTR, it just doesn't feel as comfortably.. it feels like it is a much much smaller bike. can anyone tell me if there are major differences between the 2 in the handle bar area? i believe the tank shape is a little different.. but are the handle bars higher or wider too? and if so, how could i go about making our bike similar? I presume our VTR250 is standard, it doesn't seem to have any obvious modifications.
