I was pleasantly surprised that I didnt need it lowered, that allowed me to put some cash in the detach kit. I must have grown taller over the last year because the seat height on the RGU is 1" taller than a stock Road King Classic, and I had to lower it an inch. Go figure.
Funny you mention that, when I owned my ultra limited, I had the seat modded to move me down an inch for clearance to not screw with the suspension, but this RG Ultra is perfect even if I have sneakers on.

Congrats again. I just started with the BS on mine today, stopped at the dealer on the way home to pic up my XL Get-A-Grip's, and picked up some highway pegs and mounts and a new fuel door. Madstad should be here in a day or so, then on to make a final decision on the go fast stuff........

Welcome to the tank.
I think it's always a good idea to ride an new scoot "as is" for a few miles, just to see what really needs to be changed. Sometimes our preconceived notions aren't accurate.

Like I told you. What I said. Steal your face right off your head.
