Default Anyone my height ride a CBR F4i?

I'm thinking of getting a 02 F4i, I posted this in another forum but needed personal opinions from people with experience. I'm worried that I won't be able to touch the ground. My inseam is around 27". I was going to get the bike lowered about 3.5 inches. So my question is it possible for me to ride this bike? Haven't heard anything yet from a 5'1 footer so hopefully someone is out there that rides it!

You have a 27" inseam, and your 5'1? wow, you got some legs

hmm, I am about 5'7 or so, and have a 28" inseam. I got short legs.

I can tip toe each side if the bike is straight up, but I can flat foot if I just slide my rump over to the side a litte, or tilt the bike a little bit.

you should be okay, just never park nose facing down hill.

I am 5'2 and I ride a F3. The bike was lowered so my feet are flat on the ground. Personally I feel I have more control being the bike is lower. But the choice is really up to you.

Not having it lowered wasn't an option. I'm just asking if lowering about 3.5 inches will make comfortable to ride. How much did you lower it and what links did you use?

I'm getting different stories. I guess I'll just buy it and have it lowered. I'll make it work

Have you sat on an f4i and tried it stock? I have an '03 my legs are long but when my friend gets on it she can barely get a foot on the ground.

Yeah I actually called that one, but it has 15,000 miles on it. Mine is $2750 with 5000 miles, all black with the decals. I'm going to find a dealership that has some of these in and sit on one

I know this is a womens section but ill intrude since i feel i can help so i will.

Try and shave the seat first. You should be able to take a good 1-2inch out of it. If your still uncomfortable with that then id lower it no more then 1in front and rear.

Think of it this way, where you live and ride are you frequently stopping, do you have hills? If not then id say forget lowering it, because your going to be riding a lot more then stopping.
