Would like some opinions - I have the F900R. When I ride, the bike is causing my upper body position to be leaning forward to the point that my upper body weight is pressing into the handlebars. So my natural instinct is to lock my arms into a straight position. The is causing the weight to shift to my hands on the handlebar and I get extreme pain in my wrists. First, the BMW website states: "The F 900 R can be equipped to fit you perfectly. With standard adjustable hand levers, several available seat heights and handlebar positioning, the F 900 R is a true dynamic roadster, just for you." My question here - has anyone adjusted handlebar position? I can see I could loosen the bar clamp and rotate the handlebar some, but how much would I gain? Is that wise and would it make a difference that would help me? Secondly, I read other threads where people have added bar risers/setbacks. Are there problems with the cabling length that you have to change any cabling to get lock-to-lock travel of the bar? I see some "name-brand" risers/setbacks and I see some cheaper ones on eBay. Are the cheaper ones on eBay okay or should they be avoid? Lastly, I have the standard seat. The height of the standard set is okay for me (I am 5'11" US measurement). Would changing the seat help to change my positioning of leaning into the handlebars?
I would like to know what you think is my best option - can the handlebars really be adjusted as the website says and if so, would it help much? Or should I look at bar risers/setbacks, if so what size is required? Or should I look for different seat options.
Last question - if I loosen the bar clamps, what is the torque for re-tighten?
