I have quite short legs, also have stacked boots and the same problem! I've had a Nitron shock fitted and requested it was shortened. They said I could have it as much as I wanted but obviously the more you have it shortened the more it can affect the bike's geometry and handling, unless you have the front adjusted as well. So I asked them to shorten it as much as possible without having too much of an effect on the bike. Mine has been done by about 30mm which gives me approx an inch lower in ride height - I still can't flat foot but it has made a difference. Also the Nitron shock is adjustable and WAY superior than the stock!Does anyone know where I could get a lowering shock absorber for the Ducati 2015. I have got big boots, a cut out seat but bike could do with being lowered by 1 or 2 inches.
Bloody hell. I thought I was a short @rse
Crikey, I have just over 28" inside legs and can't flat foot!! I weigh about 130lbs though so don't have an awful lot of effect on the bike!I was thinking same - I have 26.5" inside legs and I was able to flat foot (I am heavy too) this
On my Multistrada I am on toes so bought some Harley Davidson Caldwell Boots - the toe part of the sole is maybe an inch thick - so half to 3/4 inch more than the normal boot - it made a big difference.
How short are your legs Pgalloway and Little Owl - or are you lightweight also?
Are you a hobbit?i might win the short leg competition here! I'm 5'1 and weigh 9 stone with an inside leg of about 24" - 25", i can tip toe with one foot only, when the road is cambered i can touch the floor with the ball of my foot but only the one. I'm interested in getting a slightly lowered rear shock absorber but they are quite expensive. Oh i do have the lowered -20mm seat fitted too which has made a massive difference and is surprisingly quite comfy
