Hi guys,

do you know if Yamaha will ever release a lowering kit??

For a guy like me it is still a biiiit to high. Getting it lower would be great.

So, any idea about this?

Of course, but assuming it is not a vertical spring and it is a central spring I wouldn´t say the retainer lenght is the lowering lenght. But maybe I am missing something...

I saw one with the flat seat today and at a glance - it looks narrower at the front, which I think could make a difference...

Something doesn't add up for me with the XSR700 seat height - the MT-09/FZ-09 has a claimed 815mm seat height too and I can get both feet just about flat on the floor, yet with the XSR700, I'm on my toes.

Either Yamaha are telling porky pies, or it's related to the shape of the seat, which is sort of flat-topped and splays your legs out a bit.

Either way I think they missed a trick here - this is a bike designed to attract newbies. It needs to be manageable. Hopefully a lower seat option is in the works... they'd have to be daft not to produce one.
