Easy fix. Contact Works Performance Shocks and buy the ones that will lower the bike by 1". And if that isn't enough, buy a Sargent "Low" version seat, you shoud gain another 1".

Spending money for a new shock + install, and buying a new seat are not what many would consider easy fixes! There are some seat mods that can be tried first - scroll through some of the recent posts and you will find a thread on this subject. I too am vertically challenged in terms of inseam length but some of the suggestions, inexpensive to try, helped greatly. Good luck.

And don't forget to shorten the side stand. I ran into a guy last week who had this done and was tired of looking for holes in pavement. wink.gif

I didn't say inexpensive. And tearing apart a seat is not easy. If you plan on keeping the bike get it done right. Most here replace the seat anyway. And most replace shocks with a better ones. Might as well bight the bullet and get the bike setup so you feel comfortable on it.
