You might try shaving the seat foam down - that's the easiest (and cheapest) way to do it.

if you use shorter shocks you would loose ground clearance and if you think it's tuff getting a wing on the centerstand now just wait until you lower it. a lower seat would be a better option to me

Try the seat option. Go buy one from e-bay to experiment on.

I'm 5'1" with a 26" inseam. I cut about 4" out of the front saddle and had it recovered. It's perfect. I can get one foot almost flat, or the toes of both feet for pushing backward.


Don't spook the road sheep.
