R Bike too tall? Want to swap? San Diego.
Been reading about inmates making a suspension love connection, and I thought I'd throw it out there-

Mine's a 2000-mile 2011Adv and I'd rather it be taller. Do you have an R that you'd rather it shorter?

Yes, I realize I can do it aftermarket and spend some loot (and will likely have to do so) but if there's anyone close to San Diego who wants to go the other direction, please PM.


(Looks like I was unclear- just wanting to swap suspension components)

i've read you can take that off - makes it lighter :lol3

A renazco seat that is taller than stock.

I have one off my R that was 2 tall.

It will make the bike "taller" but that won't increase the travel of the suspension.

Themastermike 12-19-2012 09:30 AM

you are. Wasn't clear on your intent.

FakeName 01-27-2013 01:12 PM

Still looking.

And hoping.

FakeName 02-13-2013 10:31 AM

Yes, still looking. Had some interest from some solid folks, but have not yet found the right fit for both.

Thanks for your interest!

Mr_Snips 02-13-2013 11:20 AM

Maybe. Is your suspension stock?

FakeName 02-13-2013 01:00 PM


Stock and ready to mod- but for you, Nate, I suspect you'd need only valving.

Paul if he doesn't want to trade the whole bike, maybe just exchange the components. Lots of work I know but...

FakeName 02-15-2013 07:40 PM

That's all I want, just trade the components.

Mr_Snips 02-15-2013 08:50 PM

Yeah i'm gonna pass had some fun off road the other day and realized the height is actually pretty nice to have offroad...even for a short guy.
