Thanks buddy!

I'm sticking with my stock 2015R fairings. They've become my 'do it all' fairings now. Instead of spending on track fairings, I ended up buying Mick's take-off fairings from his 2016R so I have clean R fairings sitting safely in storage

She is a she, but I never got around to naming her

He was talking about “her” and “she”.

I always give my bikes names, and they are all ladies. I’ve had Vicky, Monica, Dani,...

New Seat

My Race Seats extension was working well for me on track (I like the reduced front-to-back movement from being all the way back on straights and sliding up the tank to brake) but the seat was just too low (From my earlier post "I didn't specify to Race Seats that I wanted to keep the DP race seat height, so the Race Seats one felt a little too low)

I decided I had to make another seat order. This time I had them approximate the DP seat height (which they said was +35mm) and I wanted the narrower front section like the DP seat, so they did that as well. The new seat went on and another Sepang track day came by.

I gelled much better with the new seat height but I'm still struggling with keeping myself gripped on the seat on corner exits. As I get back progressively hard on the throttle, my leathers seem to slide back easily and it takes a lot of effort to keep locked on. This sucks because after a few laps I'm beat and I have to nurse the throttle on exits.

Does anyone else have the Alpinestars leather suit with the DFS knee protector/slider area (the grey bit on the inside surface of the knees)? I love my Atem V3 suit but the DFS bit does not help with getting a good grip.

Interesting. May I ask your height? And inseam? I have the extension seat combo (haven’t tried it) but I’ve found out that I actually prefer lower seat. R seat vs comfort seat height. I even shaved R seat to make it even lower.

vyruz two things that can help you. Move your rearsets back a bit. This’ll help you stay forward with less effort. For the seat add foam pads to the front of the seat cowl to control how far back you can slide.
I personally don’t like being positioned back on the seat as the front gets to light.
Thanks from vyruz and able duc
