    Astra Vxr headroom?

    Been look to look at a vxr today, was up for 9490, was red, 35k, was very interested, wasnt in great nick and seemed to have a oil leak, but besides that, is there any trouble with the head room? Im not a small guy, bout 6 foot 1ish and i had the seat as low as it would go and my head was still only about half a inch from the roof. Anyone had any trouble?

    That is one of the common things with the VXR, you seem to be sat VERY high up.

    im 6 ft 2 and its ok for me. I find the mirror gets in the way of my view at junctions though (i have sight and light) so you should be ok i think.

    I went on a track day and did find the roof to low while wearing a helmet

    Weird stuff, dunno what it is, is there any other setting to adjust? i moved the chair to the lowest setting moved the seat backwards and forward and moved the actual back rest backwards? All i can think of doing, maybe i should try again.

    Theres a handle on the left hand side (when sat in the seat) that tilts the entire seat.

    That may have been adjusted so the front of the seat points upwards.

    Not sure if theyve all got it.

    VXR's definitely have though.
