Default New 2013 Cross Country

Hi, my name is Reese and I purchased my Cross Country in Scottsdale AZ jus about a month ago. It was demo with 2000 miles on it. Great riding bike! Still waiting on a lowering kit that was ordered but it seems Polaris is taking their sweet time delivering it.

No I do not live in Scottsdale. I live in Mesa for the winter and then in Central NY for the summer. My CC is orange.

Hi - I am also short, about 5'4", and have been riding a 2007 kingpin with a lowered seat. I am about to trade for a XC tour, or an XC. They offer a 1" lower seat for $600. I also added 1" to the bottom of my boots. The only problem with that is that I needed to upshift with my heel. I am concerned about the fit on the XC. One is coming into the dealer in a few days and I will try it out. I am a little worried about lowering the rear end, but the dealer said that it wont effect anything. I have a hard time believing that.

The dealer is not forthcoming. I imagine that he sees the profit in selling you the kit and likely installing it. He has an interest in shooting off comments like telling you that a lowering kit won't affect anything.

It will.

Consider your relationship with a dealer that does not take a minute to offer the pros and cons of a mod that affects suspension and the height of the bike because there are pros and cons.

There are tons of info on lowering your bike. Do a search. As far as I know Polaris doesn't make a Lowering kit. Your dealer is having to buy it from a third party such as HMD, Hot Vic, Nometz... he's probably still researching where he'll get the most profit.
