Taller and Shorter Riders

Motorcycles, like airplanes, are designed to accommodate the largest number of people around the world possible using what is called the "standard man" model (or average man). Unfortunately, a lot of us aren't average. Tall and short riders often need to adjust the bike to get a comfortable riding position.

In no particular order I would suggest the following....

Mirror extenders. Just about everybody needs these no matter what size you are, but if you are bigger you really need them.

Foot peg and control lowering kit with or without Gear shift extension/relocation. Even the knees of riders with 30" inseams appreciate the this kit.

Raising and lowering links. Raise or lower the back of the bike without affecting the travel or performance of your suspension.

Givi Airflow windscreen (7" of adjustability). In a class by itself. A simply outstanding windshield for essentially all riders no matter your height.

Please don't hesitate to call or shoot us a contact form if you have questions.

I'm adding the option for even wider mirror extenders to our list of solutions for big and tall, and shorter riders. These new mirror extenders add an extra 3/4" width beyond that of our regular extenders. We have some made already, but it may take me a little while to add them to our site so shoot me a contact form if your interested. Note our normal mirror extenders serve 98% of the community extremely well.
