Lowering Yamaha MT-07 height: how to get it.

If you have browsed a little in our blog you will know that we have explained several alternatives to lower the height of any motorcycle and, of course, they are a solution also for the Yamaha MT-07.

Lowering the seat of the Yamaha MT-07

One option is to lower the seat by removing foam to make it less high and allow you to reach the ground with your feet. Keep in mind that you will need the help of an upholsterer and that you will gain a couple of centimeters. You also risk losing comfort when driving and this can have consequences on the health of your back.

Replacing the connecting rods

Another alternative is to buy (or ask a mechanic to buy and install) a linkage kit to lower the suspension of this model. We have searched online and this option would cost you about 150€ plus the cost of labor.

This solution seems interesting and is one of the most common but, be careful, because lowering the height of the bike like this changes the whole geometry of the motorbike and this can be dangerous.

Keep in mind that engineers have developed the motorcycle in this way and when it leaves the factory it is designed to ensure a certain safety. Changing the frame may result in the bike not responding as it should, especially in curves.

Upbikers: maneuver the Yamaha MT-07 without changing its geometry


Well, there is another solution that will not lead you to change the Yamaha MT-07 bike in any way, it is the Upbikers.

This kind of toe lift (whether you wear boots or prefer to ride with sport shoes) guarantees you 4 cm more on both legs. Getting on and off the bike, maneuvering it to park, stopping at traffic lights will no longer be complicated or dangerous.

In short, if you want to buy the Yamaha MT-07 and you are worried about not reaching the ground thanks to the Upbikers this will no longer be a problem.

Buy them online and receive them without paying shipping costs if you live in Spain.
