    I've bought PUIG lowering kit, 40mm. now i sit pretty comfortable (1.98cm). however this raise another issue. the brake pedal become too high, even in the lowest configuration. had to cut it in half and weld it a bit lower, still not perfect but at least i dont need to raise my leg to use the brakes.

    The reference for the adapter is this: 20241N
    then you can buy whatever extension size and footpegs from the brand you want, i've bought the touring ones

    I had to search the reference in the PUIG list and send the email to them directly, as i couldn't find anywhere on earth that would sell it, sorry. the only item you will need is the adapter, with the reference i've stated before, then you can buy the generic pieces (extender and footpeg)

    I know how you feel. I am 6'8" 360. Was totally annoyed until I started sitting further back on the seat, more like on top of the seat back, all of a sudden I was comfy....Not sitting in the bucket so to speak, more in the pillion zone....
    Every one has fun.....
    Nobody gets hurt...
    When in Doubt, please refer to rule number One...

    Since the last post, I've sent my seat to top sellerie for a gel+heating conversion without changing the look.... Very happy with the overall gain for the price!!

    my only concern would be the balance of the bike once the mods have been completed, as an ex racer the set up of the bike would need to be done by a specialist, ktech suspension was my choice with re valving and ride height adjustment. If you lift the bike you will shorten the wheelbase and thus make it turn quicker but could upset it at higher speeds.
    Get the settings sorted for your height weight and riding style and you will have  sweet handling bike for life.
