For some reason, the CRF 300L and Rally's have really tall seat heights (over 35" and taller than the AFRICA TWIN!?! ), especially for a small displacement beginners bike.

So we have some options to get your feet firmly on the ground. We are pleased to offer these custom-shaped lowering seats that lower the seat height by about 2". These are brand new original HONDA seats that have been hand shaped and re-formed to reduce the seat height by about 2" There is still 1-1/2" of foam cushion in the main seating area, so normal ADV riding won't be an issue, but if you are a hard-charging off-roader frequently getting airborne, it might be a bit firm on some landings! :-) 

These were developed after my wife was about to give up on her Rally as it was too tall for her. She is relatively new to offroad riding and really felt unsafe and uncomfortable on the Rally, especially when riding on sidehills and slippery surfaces where she was not able to touch the ground when needed. We had already installed a lowering link and that helped, but she wanted it lower to feel comfortable. So we gave one of these a try and she now loves her Rally!  Easily installed in just a couple of minutes with common hand tools. 

 

We often get further questions from customers: Here is our general response-

The cons of running a link are due to the geometry change in the suspension. In a nutshell, the bike becomes "choppered out" slightly. So the bike likes to go straight (improves straight-line stability), but when cornering on loose surfaces such as gravel roads or lose dirt, the bikes front end will have a bit more of a tendency to plow or push through corners. This is not noticeable on pavement and a beginner off road rider probably won't push the limits of traction enough to have it be an issue, but if you are an experienced off-road rider, you will most likely notice it.  

In regards to seat comfort, we had to choose a compromise point that had decent comfort and still an effective seat height reduction. If you read through the reviews, you will see a couple of comments about reduced comfort. I generally tell people that you most likely won't notice it riding off-road where you are standing up intermittently, but if you are riding a couple hundred miles of pavement, then its surely to be noticeable.  

Lastly, to simulate the ride height adjustment, find some lumber, bricks or something that you can easily stack up on both sides of the bike that you can rest your feet on that is the same height as the potential drop from the seat and link.  That will give you a pretty good sense of how it will feel after the mods.
