Hey all...just picked mine up today. Not my first bike, and certainly not my last!! kind of a fun bike. Hope to see a little more aftermarket support in the future.
They are fun....certainly don't drive like a regular bike. More like a 4 wheeler.Wow that's a lot of motorcycles, welcome to the SCR fan club! Seriously though, not sure if the Spyder qualifies as a motorcycle lol. It does look like a ton of fun, Ive always wanted to try one!
Lowering? The seat's tall. The bike is not.Definitely planning on mods. Everything from lowering, getting my seat redone, LED's, stage 1 etc..
Lowering? The seat's tall. The bike is not.
It's gonna scrape as delivered. Increase the bike's performance and lowering's just going to make things worse in a hurry.
I recommend doing the seat first & spend some time on the bike to get a feel for it before revisiting lowering it.
I have a theory on bikes and their seat height.
One:They are designed for motion, not being stationary.
Nobody buys a plane for how well it fits in a hangar.
Some concessions are expected.
Two: It's the bike's job to hold the rider up, not the other way around.
The rider's just there for balance.
Just look at a 70 year old man riding a GL1800 two up and ask yourself, "Is he really strong enough to hold up over 1/2 a ton of people & machine?" Nope.
The SCR's stock seat is 32.7" high.
My Super Tenere's seat is 33.3" high in the low position
and 34.3" in the taller, (to me) more comfortable position.
I have a 30" inseam and in a combined 37k miles on the two have never dropped either one from lack of being able to get my feet on the ground completely. I do tend to wear out the toes of my riding boots, though. ;-)
My apologies. =)Oh I get it. I've had enough bikes and messed around with them enough. Just a preference. I like tinkering around with stuff.
This SCR is my 2nd bike. I dont have the tools and knowledge to alter mine. I guess I could if I really wanted to.
But being a part of this forum has given me a lot of learning and some great ideas!
I bought it without riding it first. Il never forget how strange and uncomfortable it was as I drove away on it.
I would swear its a different bike today! I know full well its the same... But its so comfortable and familiar now.
I dont want to change anything now and..................
Because of my lack of knowledge , tools and Greenbacks..... Im leaving mine alone. lol
Maybe a windshield at some point.
Those were probably the most true words ever spoken on this forum. At the end of the day its your money going towards something for you to ride, no one else, well maybe an S/O.Nothing wrong with keeping it stock All that matters is you're on two wheels and you do you!!!
