    seat height question

    I just bought the DS. I tried the fxs which was 32.9" seat height. that was a bit high for me as I am 5' 8" with a 29" inseam. I bought the DS without sitting on it because the dealer didn't have one on site. Is there a way to lower the seat height about 1"?

    I'm interested in the same issue. I'm 5'4" with a 29" inseam and lowering the bike 1" would make for a much more pleasant riding experience.

    I'm no expert but I think you can get a shorter rear shock and lower the forks in the triple tree to match the amount of distance taken out of the back. You may need to get a shorter side stand depending on how much height you remove. Also, some people will make their own seat or buy one from a quality aftermarket maker. Basically, have a local upholstery company or person open up the seat and shave out some of the foam to reduce it's height.
