I am not a new rider by any means but I have a couple of friends starting this year. One of them is about 5'3 and have a 2005 Honda cbr RR.
He can barely tippy toe on the bike and wants to get it lowered. I told him to avoid doing that and if he has to, then don't go any lower than 1 inch vs. 3 inches or something. I have been reading around and some people say its really bad to lower a bike due to messing up the lean angles, geometry and overall handling of the bike and could be dangerous.
I just wanted to get some feed back on what you guys all think. Some people say its bad some say it doesn't make a difference.
If you feel yes or no please follow up with a reason.
I appreciate the input!
