Internal shorten versys fork

I'm trying to lower the front on my wife's 08 versys. i have slid the tubes up all the way and would like to go another inch. I have already lowered the rear with a link and installed a 650 ninja shock. Has anyone internal shortened the stroke on a versys fork. The left fork has no damping assy, its is all in the rt fork assy.

Are you trying to get the ergonomics down to make it closer to flat-flooting for the Mrs.?

I also have an '08. It's a tall ride when stock. Have you considered a seat mod, and getting momma some nice boots?

You could pick up an inch between those points. Sorry, the fork not my specialty....
Good on you for rigging up the Mrs. with a 'Vers'. Pretty spunky ride.

yeah, trying to get it so she can flat foot it. I have cut the stock seat down as well. Boots might be a good option.

Jt,

Not sure if you know this fellow or not as a Versys source,
but his stuff is quite well made-- he has some unique Versys parts, and he's a Versys rider as well.

Couple things on his site that are on my wish list...

foot-peg mounts, bar risers, and swanky kickstand foot.
