    Riding postion with VX plate

    I'm curious where people find the best riding position is with the vx plate on the fzr. I had the stock plate with no shims and always sat as far back as possible. Last weekend I put a shim in the front bolts (don't know what size) and noticed I lost speed if I sat all the way back but gained it back if I sat up closer. I'm not sure if I gained any speed since the weather turned bad but I can tell you it handled more like the stock plate. Btw, I never had the problem with bouncing.

    I slide my butt back to the 3rd seat if I'm doing a speed run. It seems to go just fine in the normal seat though.
