in case you missed it, OP is talking about a 2020 XRHandling is mainly improved with right suspension setup and geometry. Few track sessions or 200m trip on a bike with a seat too low is more risky than worrying about lowering COG.
Get the taller seat, stay tucked in if worried about COG.
My RR has been acting up lately, where I had to leave several track days earlier. I debated replacing it with a new RR , but I believe I have the demons worked out now and my plan was to use the XR as a back up and do some sport touring as well.Not yet, but I will once I'm traveling again. I also have an RR, but after 2000 miles on the XR, the RR is just plain uncomfortable to ride. It's my backup bike and, I thought it would be my track bike, but now I'm thinking I'll need to get something else.
