Aprilia RSV Mille - Seat Height

Hi, has anybody lowered the seat height on a Mille? I'm on tip toe on it but would buy one today if I coud lower it. Spoke to a mechanic who said he could grab 5mm from the stock setup, not enough for stopping at the lights with my 15 year old lad on the back. Love that bike, love it, love it!!:wacko:

ride height

There is a ride height adjuster at the bottom of the rear shock,24mm spanner needed i think,measure first turn it to lower then re measure. Whatever you do to the rear lower the front the same otherwise the handling will be all to cock,even a small amount to both front & rear will make a massive difference
