lower bike height

Just bought a 03 V92C. Love it! My only concern is that the bike is a tad bit high for me.....would like seat height to be couple inches lower. Any suggestions on best way to do this?? New seat maybe? Thanks!!

I am like you, vertically challanged. I couuld not find a seat or a lowering kit to lower mine. I took off the clevis on the top of the shock and had a new shorter one made. It lowered the bike about an inch.

lower seat

I have a seat made but Mr.Eds Moto, it came with the bike(2002TC) when I bought it. I have the stock seat on it now (chopped to a solo seat) hard to say exactly how much lower ,1 1/2" would be close. I sent you a quick PM.

D in Maine, were you able to lower the bike or the seat? The ride height is perfect for me only if I wear my steel toes, so I'd like to drop it an inch or two also. I just don't want to shell out a ton of cash. Let me know if you come up with a good solution.
