I have a friend wanting a new Goldwing but feels uncomfortable with the seat height. Does anyone manufacture a lowering kit? If so, how much of a drop?

I do not know of a lowering kit but to give me a little more confidence with my 2008 Goldwinf I purchased some height increasing boots from a website call tallmenshoes.com . These boots are very comfortable and increases my height by 3 inches. They look like normal boots some no one can really tell. I am only 5 ft 6 in but have no trouble riding my Goldwing with my wife on the back. Just a suggestion but it works.

Check the GWRRA magazine for an advertisement on this. My dad had one of these installed from Lower Wing and he went from tip toes with floorboards installed to flat footed. It's like $365 for the part and there was a guy at the wing ding that installed it for $100. IMHO it's was the best money he ever spent.

The install included lowering the front forks 1 inch. All in all it was 1 and 1/4 inches lower.

Check out MrGoldwing.com for your lowering bracket for the GL1800.
It's innovative and it works. It was built and designed in the USA. Thanks

I'm 5'6 and wear cowboy boots with a 2 inch heal. What I did that really worked is I took my seat to a local upholserer. He shaved my seat down and inserted a gel pad on my request. Also shaved the foam down from the horn of the seat, were your thighs touch will standing. He also shaved a indent were my tailbone is to put pressure on my butt, not my tailboane. Now I have both feet planted on the ground will seated and just finished a 425 mile ride with no pain. Cost under $200. Best money I've ever spent...

I'm going to ship my seat to "Seargeants" in Fla. and have them shave the seat down. This way I won't compromise ground clearance and handling.

Could not find a lowering link for a 2013 Honda Goldwing F6B Delux on your website. Do you have one?
