    Tall guy setup

    Hello,
    I would like to improve my CT, i've seen different posts about that, but no one with every info.
    I'm pretty tall (1m95)
    And i've seen different problems on my CT :
    footpegs are to high
    -> I would like a lowering system : Is there any reference for keeping the original footpegs?
    -> One of the solutions would be a high seat, but it will raise the problem number 2 :
    Handlebar is to low
    I've seen Sw motech references. If i don't raise the seat, 3 cm would be sufficient I think.
    Can I take any reference of SWmotech for 28mm handlebar?

    back of the bike is too low
    -> I've seen a Wilber's kit to raise it by 2 cm.
    -> any report on this upgrade?
    Thanks for your help :)

    I'm also tall enough to have some of your problems. I got some machined lowered pegs off ebay, some barbacks (2") and I got a deflector for the top of the windshield (one you have the barbacks and pegs you will sit taller). Most importantly I got an aftermarket suspension system and had the shop set my ride height and sag and all that for my weight and leg length. The lowered pegs didn't seem like they were going to do much but I can only describe the change as pure relief on my legs.

    Thanks for your answer.
    I have special system to raise the windshield, so no problem from this side.
    Do you have a link for your ebay lowering footpegs?
    Thanks a lot!

    these people do a set of lowering brackets, (they are for a Honda Blackbird but are a perfect fit), you fit your own original footrests to them

    No that is the rear footrest kit ,it is from the same company, the front kit is just a bracket with pins to fit your own footrests

    I think I found the link
    https://www.jaws-motorcycles.co.uk/product/honda-blackbird-cbr1100xx-97-07-rider-footpeg-lowering-kit-2/

    Do you know how many millimiters is the lowering (or how many inches)?

    Yes that is the link,
    lower by 25mm or 1 inch ( makes more of a difference than you would think)
