Default New from Atlanta, GA

Hey guys, im new to the RS warrior. I had a zx6r before this. Picked up this bike from a nice gentleman near Savannah, GA and rode it back to atlanta. He's doen a whole bunch of tasteful mods that i really liked so picked it up. Only thing i need to do is move the forward foot controls back to normal since its kind of uncomfortable for me.

Welcome to the forum

I'm sure someone will buy those off of you -or trade, since you'll need to get stock controls.

Welcome to the forum!! Nice fat tired warrior!! The modbug will still get you! Its like a disease, it eventually gets everyone! You can take the control extensions off and put your controls back in the stock spot..

Like the rest, welcome! Normally say you can get help on the mods but hey it looks good already! IF you move the controls back give me right of first refusal on your set of forwards if you do want to sell. Sweet looking bike. Enjoy

welcome to the forum and to the wonderfull world of modding. I see you already have one of the nicest chin spoilers out there ( I am slightly biased) A search will find almost anything you can think of on this forum and if you have a question you cannot find an answer to just ask and usually someone will be able to help. Congrats on your purchase.

thanks a lot guys. Appreciate the welcome. I haven't really looked into whats involved in putting the controls back to stock position but if there's a spacer that comes out then twiceshosen, i'll make sure to let you know first. Definitely down to meet up/ride sometime when the weathers nice.

also i think i might need to move my handlebars a tiny bit back, to be comfortable. I found a bunch of thread talking about different kinds of risers but im new to these bikes and am not sure whats involved. Can anyone quickly brief me or point me to a thread that explains what i could do to get my bars back a little bit? (i need just like an inch closer to me). I dont want to raise them higher if i can help it, just back. Which riser can i use to accomplish this and is it fairly easy? i can do it without messing with the cables? Would appreciate any info , thanks in advance
