    Ok I know, just by normal 950 but, still...

    I would like to hear your opinion. I'm thinking to by 950 and off course I can only find 950 S and I'm not a tall one :)
    175cm but i had a few hard enduro bikes so as long as i just touch the ground with both feet it's ok.

    lower seat?
    dog bone is not a option...

    There are plenty of inmates that would love to trade you for their standard suspension! (kickstand and maybe centerstand)

    Just costs shipping...

    Anyone in the same timezone as OP that can help him with some shorter boingers?

    Trade is definitly the way

    the S handles WaaaaAAAAAYa better though (if you are tall enough to handle it)

    Dont forget to swap sidestand and centerstand also

    I think the stock seat is already too low so I wouldn't recommend that route. Yes, it's the easy fix but IMO will totally screw up an already half assed handlebars-pegs-seat relationship.
