I really want a Gsxr 600 from 01-05. But i have 28 inch inseam and weigh 100 pounds. I really wont ride a bike unless i have both my feet or toes touching the ground.

I had an aprilia rs50 and had to lower it. and it rides fine. is dropping the yokes an option on the gsxr too? and i kno about the link for the rear. but those only go 3 inches? i really want it slammed. id ont care how it handles i just want a bike to ride on.

I do not think there is a bolt on kit that will allow you to drop a total of 5 inches. LOL That is beyond Slammed!!! That's SCRAPING!!! ;) But you may be able to grab a set of those Adjustable Dog bones and Fabricate them, mabe drill some extra holes. I am not sure how much you could drop the front down though to match things up, plus dropping 5 inches, the rear shock may have to get fabricated as well, because that shock has minimal adjustiablilty of about 2.5 to 3" at the most.

three inches should be more than enough also lowering the front as well.
Diffrent bikes have different heights.

you can drop the front triple clamps on the fork tubes, don't think your going to be able to get 5 inches of a drop.

I don't think 5 inches is going to be possible unless you go with almost no suspension like a drag bike.

talking about lower it 3 inchs, and shave off the seat, maybe completely. Saw someone do a custom seat where it was.....pretty much no seat. This was on gixxer.com for a really small girl. I forgot how tall she was.....i think she was like 4'10. But she was tiny.


Just curious man, how tall are you? Cause i'm about a 28-30 inseam. I wear 32 inseam but my pants drag on the ground.

whats the deal with the exhaust on that aprilla and you called it a rs50 so is it a 50cc sportbike????
2 stroke, its a mini bike pretty much, well its a small bike, but not small like a mini or pocketbike..... i think its the size of a NSR50 dream from honda.

Single cylinder, 2 stroke motor, and yup 50ccs. Not street legal in some states. I know its not in cali cause no 2stroke motor are street legal in cali.

Can I ask a personal question? How old are you? How tall are you? I have a 32-33 inch inseam and ride a stock 1k fine. I think you should lower it 1.5 inches and deal with it. It won't change the ride too much. Answer my questions and I can help you a little more.

Yes you can fit the bike I am sure of it also when you get the bike you will need to get the adjustable kickstand or have the one cut for you as well

Its a little smaller than a normal sport bike but much larger than a NSR50. I've ridden them, they are fun, we couldn't get it to do over 80 though.

Ok so... I am not sure where we are at with this but I am 5'1 and a 1/2!! I lowered my 600 both in the front and had doggie bones! Not only can I touch both feet but even when the big guys ride, it handles like a champ! hope that helps
