    Lowering Seat

    I know there are quite a few topics on this.  I'm 5'7 with a 29" inseam.  I have the 2018 Low version with both an HP seat and a low seat.  I've also added those rubber spacers which are also suppose to lower.  With all the different options, my feet really never change.  Still on my toes more that I would like.  It seems to me the seat on the "R" is narrower along with the seat on the Multistrata.  Has anyone ever attempted to find or make the seat more narrow?
    Nitrous is like a hot chick with an STD.  You know you want to hit it but unsure of the outcome.

    I am exactly the same measurements as yourself with a lowered chassis i had mine lowered by cymarc bike parts in scunthorpe the guy is on this forum i am now flat footed with the HP high comfort seat fitted. I see you are in America so you could purchase the lowering link from him already set up to be fitted by yourself or fitted by a motorcycle dealer. Alternatively there is a soupys lowering link which is available in the states which you could have fitted ( The cymarc lowering link is the better quality ) 
    Live for today tomorrow may never come.

    Thank you. Would you happen to know the length they made yours?
