Is there a HS lowering kit??

Hello
I have a 2013 Hyperstrada 821 and I am desperately seeking a lowering kit to reduce the height about an inch or two. I had to do the same on previous bikes, Tiger 800 and Bmw 650 Dakar and the differerence for a short arse like me is fantastic. I just cant seem to find anything online. Is anyone aware of a lowering kit available and /or any other options except for the low seat. I already have thick soled boots with an extra 1/2 inch built up on soles but would be good to just get it lowered and be able to buy normal boots etc.
Any assistance shal be appreciated.
Cheers.

I tried the lower link but it did not work, the only way to lower it correctly is to replace the rear shock. We put on a Wilbers shock and it worked great.

Which 2013 hyperstrada do you have?
There was a special factory order low version available in 2013.
That's the one I ordered, this comes with shorter suspension and stands to match.
There was also a low seat available to lower it further, but I didn't need that.
I don't think I'd want to lower it further as things would start to drag!!

its a normal standard height. Trid the low seat but found it just pushed you forward in to tank too much. Pity theres no affordable option available.

Just curious, did you test ride the bike before purchase? I'm not super tall and have a short inseam and studied seat height of all the bikes I was in the market for.

I'm sure it sucks to love the bike until you stop for a light or sign.

Take a look at the Wilbers, my wife is 5'7" and she loves it. We're going to put the Andreani kit on next week to complete her bike.

Be cheaper to trade the bike in for the low version

Hey are you having the suspension done at Pasta as well? I'm in Sac and have been thinking about some mods and looking for a decent shop.

Yep, Clay finished it up today and it's awesome, my wife is very happy. I highly recommend Pasta Performance... Clay goes out of his way to explain everything... And doesn't upsale you on crap that you won't need...
Wilbers on the rear and Andreani on the front.
