Lowering my Strat - is 1.75" too low?
I'm having the Strat lowered to fit me better - when I scoot up on the seat I can flat-foot her in the driveway and on level surfaces, but I've stopped on enough uneven pavement and had to stretch just enough times to think that a little lower will be a little safer for me. I am about 5' 6" and weigh less than a buck fifty. I do not ride two up, so I don't expect weight to be an issue.
That said, here's my Q: Will lowering this bike 1.75" make enough difference to the clearance on curves and corners that I should worry about scraping floorboards and, more importantly, the stock pipes?
Thanks in advance for your input,
