Lookin into gettin a 2009

I just sold my suzuki savage and have my hopes set on a 2009 Versys thats been sitting in a local bike shop for about a month. My only concern is I am 5'3" and am wondering if the standard lowering kit is enough for me to get my feet on the ground.

Don't know where you're located, but I'm in NJ. I have an 09 V and a 10 V. I got the 10 V to ride in WV, but didn't use it much there, so brought it to NJ. Anyway, I don't need both and have decided to keep the 10 V, and sell the 09.

The 09 V is set up with a HyperPro 2" (50mm) lowering shock, and a very comfortable and very low seat. The front is also lowered 2", with HyperPro lowering, progressive springs. It has about 29" seat height, and is even lower when you sit on the bike.

The bike has a great ride. I did a revalve on the front spring. The HyperPro shock has high and low-speed compression damping, as well as rebound damping.

I have over 17,000 miles on the bike, but it's been maintained very well - with regular oil changes, spark plugs, valve checks, etc. It's on its second set of Michelin PR3 tires (2500 miles).

If you're at all interested, send me a PM. If anyone else is interested, send me a PM.
