Hello fellow ZX10 riders, I am 5'9" 205 lbs. I purchased my 05 zx10 in october off the showroom floor and left my suspension at the specs already set. I am on my tip toe when sitting on my bike and have a hard time backing the bike up but am able to do it. I have put 2500 mi. on the bike and am very comfortable with it, but might feel little better if i could sit flat footed. I do not want to lower the bike much about a 1" or 1.5". What is the best way to do it? If i do the back do i need to front to keep same stance? Or do i just deal with im short and leave it the way it is. I dont stunt i like the twisties.:helmet:

If you lower the bike it won't handle as good as it does now. You could buy some lowering links (dog bones) to lower the rear 1"-1.5". Yes you would have to lower the front to keep it as nimble as possible.
