I am 5ft 7" so a little bit of short leg disorder . I would love to lower the suspension or work on a lower seat . Does anyone have any input for either option ?
The 2001-2017 do not have air suspension. They have a hydraulic pre-load shock. Doesn't really change the height very much. From 0 to 20 only changes the height about 3/8". 0 is as low as it goes .Seat height is 29" minimum. Will drop some when you sit on it. There use to be kits to lower the bike, but the only ones you can find now are on Ebay.Wings tend to have air suspension which does allow some adjustment in height. I have a 2015 AC and a friend of mine who is the same height as you and I was able to lower it enough that he could just about flat foot it. I am on the other hand 5'8" and tend to run it half way up and I am comfortable there. Other options are getting the seat trimmed to remove extra foam and narrow the seat a bit and that does help a lot. You can change out some parts to lower the suspension, but I would not do that, but that is my view,
Being on the shorter side myself, I’ve had to have a custom seat made specifically for my short inseam. “Corbin” does a great job where they actually fit me by making a molded impression while sitting on the bike and then made a formed seat to accommodate my butt and inseam. A little expensive but worth it in the long run and have had it for some 15 + years now and still holding up great.I am 5ft 7" so a little bit of short leg disorder .
