910 vs 1090

hi guys,
I'm considering picking up a used 910r but I'm about 6'2" and 200lbs.
I love the bike but I'm concerned that I will be cramped.
( I'm also concerned with some of the stalling and fueling issues I've found on here)

I've read that the 1090 is more comfortable for bigger people.
Can someone tell me what is different that makes the 1090 more comfortable and can I change the 910 to accommodate my size?

Thanks for any help

Hi mate,
I'm about the same size and have no problems fitting on the 910R. On long rides you need to stretch your legs once in a while, but otherwise it's all fine. I haven't sat on a 1090, so can't tell if it's really that different.
Cheers.

Have not ridden both, but would like to try the 1090......stalling is not a problem, unless your bike isn't set-up right.....fueling is only a problem if you have no finesse in your right wrist...in which case the newer bikes are "softer".

I think the bikes are pretty close in size. Rear sets will let you tailor the peg position for your needs. Handlebars can be changed if you find them in the wrong spot.

I used to be fast....now I just dream about it.

from what i can gather it seems as though the extra seat height is well in the seat. to me it feels like the higher by .5 inches in seat height is really due to just a thicker seat pad on the seat, bc that crushes down once you sit on it and it no longer seems as high as a 32.7 seat should be.

That seems easy enough to fix, I don't like the stock seat anyway so a seat change was in the plans.

Is the reach to the bars any different?

It looks like the 910R that I was looking at is not going to pan out so my options are still open.

look at the thread on the new 920 brutale, seems like the extra seight height really is in "the seat" as the only difference they are saying is the new 1 piece seat that is cut different and lower, go figure.

I have ridden both and as much as i wanted to pay 8500 for a new 910R i new i just wouldn't have been happy until i had done the ECU , suspension ,seat, mirrors etc mods so it seemed abit like false economy .

The 1090RR is also alot more comfier due having a bit more room , plusher seat and better road set up suspension .
