I'm 5'7"1/2 ----- 5' 8" foot on a bragging day 28 " inseam , , sorta gorrilla like , I struggled , so i took of the seat lugs ,, no different , because the camper of the road is generally more ,,, so i bought the lower seat ,, helped a lot , but give me a sore ass , on anything over 100 klm or and hour riding .
Got me some lowering links from Richland , bike was perfect , lowered it through the triple tree at the front , and never noticed any difference in handling , if there is a diff i don't think the average rider is going to push the bike enough to know . .
I got sick of the lower seat , because i was /am enjoying riding it so much its now become my first bike instead of 2 nd bike so the sore ass got on my nerves , i put the original seat back on and alls good now , i am used to it and the height is all good .
Only problem i had was the centre stand , not being used to it and not adjusting it ,, i was not careful enough putting it down on 3 occasions , thank god for the engine gaurds , they do work .
I will not adjust the stand , because i'm used to it and more careful now . . The centre stand is not a problem , because thats all about technique anyway
