Mine is an 03 and I just bought some nice SIDI boots but now I can't balance the bike anymore. I am usually on my tiptoes when stopped and I will eventually dump it. The SIDI'S have very thin soles. I was wearing work boots with thick soles that gave me another inch. I have already had a custom seat made that was lowered. So the question is can the bike be lowered an inch? Two inches would be even better.

Lowering KRS

I haven't lowered mine but I've been thinking about it. You can get Wilber shocks and have them made to reduce the seat height up to 1.5". But you'll probably have to have the kickstand shortened too.



For now, I have a pair of Prexport boots 539wp. They give me enough height to reached ground, barely.
