Default seating postition

Ok so i just gor my CBR and i've got a question. whats the proper seating postition on this bike? My ninja 650 was an upright so i hugged the tank. now that im more leaned over i fell that hugging the tank puts alot of weight on the front. if i slide back it feels better but is a little harder on my wrists. i'm sure the answer is whatever is most comfortable but not sure. any help would be great!

Which CBR is this? If an RR, the seating position is designed that way, to allow a proper racing tuck, and to put the weight on the front wheel for additional grip, feedback, and turning speed. Downside to this is that below 60mph+ there's not enough wind to support your weight.

At lower speeds, hold on with your knees, and use your abdominal muscles to keep your body up instead of your wrists.
