    Riding position

    I made the mistake of sitting on a ktm rc8 which was like an armchair.. well at least a vfr750.
    Got me thinking whether raising the bars and a little more leg room would be possible on the rsv.
    I know falco bars can be fitted, anybody done this? Does it make enough difference to be worthwhile?
    Anybody running Griff's rearsets? Does the range of adjustment allow lower as well as higher peg position?
    Cheers
    An old stiff git.

    Does it make a noticable difference to the riding position?
    I will ignore comments from the members who are more infirm than me

    Oi, shortarse! The last thing you need is lower pegs - you can't reach the standard ones.

    At least my belly doesn't come between me and the bars!

    There's your problem - too much weight on your wrists due to not enough 'tank padding'.

    I've fitted Griffs super duper rear sets and have moved them so that they are in the rear and uppermost positions. It makes the riding position perfect for me as I have rather short legs, I can now lock my upper part of my legs under the sculpted part of the tank which makes for much better control. (IMO)

    Go for it, you'll be surprised at how much better the bike will feel.
