    I am partial to the tz unit but that is because of the whole yamaha racing history thing. It needs to be just a scootch lower (I imagine when you notch it to clear the shocks this will take care of that problem).

    The yellow seat is nice, don't get me wrong, but something about bubble backs feels kinda cliche at this point.

    those are my thoughts exactly, but the tz unit cant go any lower without drasticly altering the seatrails as its sat tight down onto them, thanks for the imput tho mate.

    Looks for a GS450 tank, they should all over the place. Check a bike wrecker....
