View Full Version : Seat Height

Regarding the seat height complaints, I really don't understand. The seat height is 770mm (30 inches)
I'm 5'11" and had no problem with my feet resting comfortably on the ground on my Kawasaki W650 which has a seat height of 800 mm.

Seat Height can be low but if the seat is wide or the bike is wide you can still have a problem, You can also have a problem if the Seat is 30 inches and your inseam is 27. I am 5'6" but my height is all in my torso. My legs and arms are short compaired to my height. I only have a problem "walking" the Atlantic. But I have been riding for 34 years and have always had to fight the height problem. When I was 19 I rode a 59 Duo-Glide and had to kick start it to boot. I was 119 pounds and had to give it everything I had. At least now I have a button. However I still get a little leary of anything that does not have a kickstart. At least you can bump start a bike. I'am not so sure about a scooter.
