K1200 LT saddle height

I am a newby on these forums, looking for some advice.

I have ridden HDs for quite a while but was considering purchasing a K1200LT.....I see that the saddle height is listed as 30.xx inches whereas I used to something in the 28 inch range.


My queston; is there a kit/easy fix/adjustment that can be made to accomodate my short inseam...on these bikes? Any advice is appreciated

Here is a thread that is going on right now about this

You can get a lower shock, lower seat and for some of us we learn to live with it. Hope this helps. Don't let the height scare you.

I could play with women or with cars, I find cars are cheaper and you can write a book about cars a guy would understand.

The easiest thing is to get taller boot soles... this is not a joke.
