Good man. I'll take it as read then, that the 20mm lowering plus the seat on its lowest position just isn't low enough. Have you tried that set up but with the LOW seat?

That's what I did: 20mm lowering links, and LOW-RIDE heated seat. I have 40mm lowering links as well, but if I put those on, I'd have to modify the side-stand.

Interesting. I am 5' 9" with a 31"  inseam and I can get my heels down (or almost down) on my gen1 TEX, even with the stock, standard seat set with the front in the high position and the rear in the low position (to level the seat). I guess the new gens are taller. Suspension preload set to factory recommended settings.

I didn't know the Low seat was heated.

You can buy them heated or without, well at least for the Gen3 ;-)

As a matter of interest, with the 20mm lowering kit and a Low seat and with a 31" inside leg, are you flat footed?

As close as one can get without being entirely flat-footed if that makes sense. I feel *confident* in stop and go, off-camber, etc.....that's what matters to me.

There is also an informative video on youtube that shows you how to configure your bike (Gen 3 xRT and xCA) to change preload on the fly (no stop necessary) .


Cheers,

Steve
