    Can the 1200L be lowered to the same 883L unladened seat height of 26.8?

    I'm a short guy at 5' 3" with an inseam of 28". I like the 1200L but the seat height is just a bit too high at 28".

    Just wondering what you think...

    I replaced my shocks with 11" Progressive 412's. Stock is 11.5" but due to the different valving on the Progressives it lowered the rear about 1.5", which is right where you want to be. She rides so much smoother now.
