my 13 CVO is set up a bit too high for me on the rear, and would like to get flat footed. Research I have done shows that lowering blocks will not work with CVOs. What can I do to get my bike down 1-2 inches on the rear? I know the CVO shocks are already 12' stock and I don't believe there is an lower option out there? any help?

Change seats first. Check out the HD seat demo program.

Check out my signature to see what I did. Also chopped the seat. I am 5'6" and can hold up mc flat footed and bended knees.

I use 1.5" heels, Chippewa lace up. But yeah, I agree, platforms are probably the #1 to change. Make sure lugs on soles are aggressive.

platform boots?
Not too far off. GRC over at the CVO forum likes to suggest thicker soled boots. First time I rode my bike with my lineman Redwings on heading to work, I felt a whole lot better about stopping. Now I don't ride without them.


Others have said it, change the seat, thicker boots, and I'll toss in my 2 cents, let the air out of the tires:rolleyes: :D
