Hello everyone. This weekend I traded in my old 2009 Versys 650 towards a mothers day present for my wife. Lots of farkles are currently enroute to our home. LOL Of course my wife being all of 4'11" tall Ill have to lower it a touch. There doesn't seem to be a lot of foam to work with in the seat for reducing the seat height though. I removed the SWMotect plate and givi topcase to put on her bike. I have lowering links from T-rex coming as well as their adjustable side stand. Im not big on lowering bikes but not much of a choice when you're a shorty. Shes had several bike previously, I built her a nice SV650S with GSXR suspension parts that she loved but we sold it when we moved. View attachment 187776
I changed the dog bones and had the seat redesigned with multiple layers of foam and a higher quality covering, both together lowering the rear more than two inches, I am 5 7. I am a late starter, or returner, only riding a Honda wave around Phuket for last 15 years . I am ’only’ 76, was 72 four years ago when buying the 300X, wanted something I could lift back up after dropping it (which I have done several times) when exploring some of Thailands back roads. It has been great, 61,000kms later after riding the length and breadth of Thailand it was a great choice, but with reservations a single cylinder with lower revs and low down torque, ie RE Himalayan might have been easier to handle in those small tight lumpy corners, and negotiating the rocky farmers tracks.
