How short are you? I'm only 1.8, and the 450x is fine for me.

You get lowering links for them, and can have the seat foam cut.

Was thinking the same... And I am about another 10cm shorter than you and mine isn't lowered

I just hopped onto Fuzzy Muzzy's 450x that i just collected. Its spans lower than mine, but mine has aftermarket springs which need adjusting anyway.

You'll be fine i'm sure.

So, who has made it lower and how?
