Thank you! That is very helpful information and I appreciate the effort you went to. Do you think these pants could be shortened with a regular sewing machine and a bit of skill?

It would be amazing if someone with Klim pants could measure their inseam for me and tell me how it corresponds to the measurement on the Klim fitment chart.

That's an interesting suggestion to hem the back. I was thinking that these pants couldn't be hemmed because of the side zips, but I could probably hem the back.

Can I raise my FZ6R's front fender?

You're doing a great job, but I have to say, I'm still not a fan of the fairing. I think a basic aftermarket windscreen will look a lot less... interesting.

I 72% love it, 28% hate it. Seems to be true for me of most modern motorcycle styling.
