LT Suspension - Can It Be Lowered A Bit?

1820 Views 10 Replies 7 Participants Last post by  BecketMa
I own a 2005 LT. Love the bike, but it's a bit tall for me. I have to use tip toes when it's at rest.

Has anyone had any positive experience with lowering the suspension a bit (assuming that it can be done)?

Dave here in Waukesha. I just had my seat lowered at Astech seats in IN last week-they shaved off some of the seat giving me better traction when I stop. I'm 5'10" and was always wishing for a bit more leg room. Great guys, quick service-plus it made a nice one day ride down and the next day back. reasonable price made this a good solution.

seat feels the same actually. I didn't have the gel added because the stock seat never bothered me-I've done 65 K miles in 5 years. My issue was only height.

they shaved off enough to let me flat foot the bike, took less than 2 hours, let me watch every step, and charged $139. I thought the whole process was great!

the guys will accommodate just about any request. Memory foam or gel for some, the stock seat reworked for others.

Plus the fun of seeing a small business thrive
