1190 Adventure lowering?

Any ideas on lowering 2014 1190 Adventure?

My wife is 5' 4" about 150#. She's a very experienced rider. She wants new KTM.

I've lowered Wee Strom for her with dogbones. Is it that easy with the big KTM?

Thanks

I have a friend who has the R model and he lowered it, he is 5'7". The standard I don't know since its control is electrics. You could get the R lower the suspension and then put 19/17 wheels on it?

Front changes as per normal.

No dog bones on the 1190. The top of the shock bolts diretly to the frame and the bottom directly to the swing arm so you'll have to get a bit creative.
