Being vertically challenged, I am considering to have my seat re-upholstered to reduce the seat height.

Are there other alternatives out there liike replacing the rear shock absorber springs?

Your suggestions will be appreciated.

Which model do you have - X or GT?

There is a low seat option available to the C400X.


It drops the seat from 775mm to 760mm. I'm 5'4" with an inseam of 27-1/2" and I'm OK with the standard seat height of 775mm or 30-1/2".

Changing the rear shock height will affect the ride characteristics of the motorbike. Since your sitting near the horizontal center, you'll probably need to make a significant change.

Good luck and stay safe!

Hi Byee. I have a C400GT. Just took delivery of the scooter last Wednesday and am getting used to the seat height, but I did order the OEM
lowered seat which is coming in 4-5 weeks I am told.

Thanks for your feedback.
