You can buy shoes with thick soles and heels made just for this problem. I have seen people using them. I'm sure with a Google search you can find them.

You can cut the seat foam down a little to get a lower height and you can narrow the seat a little to make it easier to get your legs down to the ground. However there is not a lot of foam there to work with.

Past that you are going to have to get into the suspension and lower the whole bike. You do that at the expense of ground clearance.

Or you can just go with thicker boot soles as mentioned above.

tks for the the information. I did increase the soles of a pair of boots but I feel like I am going to fall off of them. Great information.

How is your connection with the ground when you are at a stop? Are you tiptoeing, got the balls of your feet on the ground?

My legs are short as well. I made sure the suspension was set at 1 instead of the 3 that it came from the factory with. I am still stretching, but it is better. I also move forward on the seat (almost off) at lights and then scoot back when I get going.

Suzuki makes a lower seat but I don't think it is sold outside of Japan.

Here is a site that sells stuff from Japan internationally.

Simply move forward to the front of the seat. The width of the seat is more of a problem than the height.

moving forward on the seat makes a huuuuge difference, i tip toe in normal seating, but can flat foot when i slide forward, and thats not even sliding forward all the way.
