Just wanted to get some thoughts on those who have changed their clip ons to the 1.5" (or higher) bar risers.

I've been riding the R3 for a couple years now and am eyeing the R7 as my next bike, but unfortunately there aren't many places around me that allow demos and/or have stock at the moment.

Could anyone give me an idea on the riding position of say a stock R3 vs the R7 (with 1.5" clip on bar risers)?

Much appreciated

It's not a bad riding position. Its slightly more neutral than the r6 but not signinifcantly. I believe it sits at 23.7 degrees. I am also 20 but I am fairly tall(or like to think I am tall at 6') but it doesn't seem too small or cramped(some friends think its cramped but then get on a 600 and think its roomy, so I think its a mental thing). I only notice issues in my wrists after about 2-3 hours at least if I am on the highway. If I'm on back roads I don't notice it because I am moving all around on the bike.

This. Could'nt agree anymore. I'm 6'4 and also find it comfortable at most times (y)

I don't understand the point of wanting to change something without having at least tried the bike once in its original configuration. The corrections... you make that in use!!

I wrongly thought that the position would be hard...but on the contrary, it's a pure pleasure with each ride. Aggressive position, no abundant electronics that restrict my happiness and some customizations... everything you need to be happy.
Easy bike for someone new to the world of superbikes...like me :) at 51years old.
