All of us that have lowered our bikes will have them but they'll likely be asked for when we sell our bikes so we keep them. Lowering reduces the C of G noticeably and doesn't affect comfort 'cos seat to peg remains the same. Being 6'-3" just means you'll be flat foot with a tad of knee bend if legs are 33" or more.
Depends how much yours has been lowered, have the side & centre stands been altered to suit? If so you'll have to put them back to stock anorl.

Sprint Engineering or a breakers is favourite.

fair point

I guess lowering the rear more than the front will tend to slow the steering - must be the lowered CofG that makes it surprisingly (!) flickable

afaik the sidestand is stock - how are they normally altered?

no centrestand

Our Gen 1 TS's had a lot of lean on the sidestand as stock, so if they were only lowered 25mm, they were ok, mine was. Some boys lowered them 40mm and needed the sidestand altered to suit, cut & weld so you should be able to see that.

We're not all able to put our bum down, as well as knees, on the bends   :188:

Saver than getting a peg down innit. Only time I get a peg down is when I fall off.
