  1. Just thought I'd say Hi, I am new to the group, to Spokane, and to riding for that matter. I do have a question that I hope someone can help me with...I need to lower my bike (I'm only 5'4'' and I am on my tiptoes when I ride) and I'm not sure which is the best way. I've been told about a couple of different options (seat shaving, seat replacement, or lowering my bike) but I am not sure what is the best option. Any suggestions would be great.

    welcome to the board!

    i don't know much about lowering bikes, but i'm sure that doing anything to the suspension is going to change your clearance and probably geometry.

    i think they make kids for it, though.

  3. talk to 1000 or G-spot on this website. I know they lowered G-spot's bike and might be able to help you out
  4. Seat shaving is nice, but lower the suspension, you get more for your buck there.

    You may want to try getting dogbone links and it should lower the bike and inch or so...there are great support/tech/info on the SV650. and I've seen threads about lowering an SV on those sites.
