I have an '07 RR and the riding postion seems a bit forward...is that due to more front end handling to get the bike turned in quicker?

Putting a lot of weight on the front wheel helps keep the front end down under hard acceleration. Honda put both the engine and rider as far forward as possible to get as much front weight bias as possible to keep the bike from power wheelieing as much.

Probably helps turning too.

but my chopper's not like this. WTF???
maybe that's why your chopper doesnt really turn when you need:thefinger:

plus i dont think they have that amount of power and are that light to pull the front so easy to worry about

Seriously, after removing the flapper and gutting the intake mine comes up violently just riding up the revs in 2nd gear at full tuck, let alone grabbing a handful from closed throttle. I do have a 15T front, exhaust, filters and a mapped PCIII. But seriously, first gear is just silly.

Yup! i'm convinced that you could loop the bike in first without using the clutch and the nose piece would hit the ground first.

it is a sport bike......keep front end down under acceleration, tire traction in corners, quicker lean in, better feedback in mid-turn, .....its kinda what they do....:thumbsup:
