Greetings from Lancashire
on: November 29, 2020, 07:11:47 PM
Hi all

I bought my z900 Cafe a few weeks ago. I love it but at 6í4Ē Iím finding problems with my wrists and shoulders on longer rides.
Iím seriously thinking of swapping out or modifying the handlebars to make life more comfortable.
Looking forward to contributing to the group of I can.
Cheers all

Welcome.

I wondered about that with the Cafe.
I am your height and have no problems with my standard ZRS,  hours on end.

OK, maybe a bit of numbum.......

 :400: You'll be able to research in here what some other members have done to make their cafe's more comfy. Hope you get it sorted out.

 :400:   I flipped around my stock risers 180 degrees that are aprox. 5mm forward, getting the them back 10mm from stock.  Then I added 20mm risers.  It's nothing radical but you'll have no stress on cables or wiring not being long enough.  It's a simple and cheap fix.   If you do them both at the same time it's pretty noticable.  BTW I'm 5'8" and it did the trick.  :028:  Good luck

Thanks all for both the welcomes and the advice.
Now Iíve finished remodelling the kitchen and dividing the garage in to two unequal halves to make an office (both my wife and I are now permanently working from home, I hope to find time to move the Ďbars around on the Cafe.
Iíve also installed a ďtail tidyĒ which I think looks crappy so Iíll put the OEM parts back.
