I would love to hear from anyone that has first hand knowledge about this change, progressive 430 rear shocks that are 1" lower for 1700 Voyager. How does it handle, any clearance issues and most important, is there a noticeable difference when stopped as far as being more flat footed. I am 6' but only 29" inseam and am also 68 years old and would like to feel a little more relaxed when stopped. Thank You:

You will definitely need to slow down for the curves. I have my shocks pumped up to gain cornering clearance. I don't like to drag the boards in the corners. My riding buddies say I get awfully close.

Do you have the 430 shocks and if so how does it affect the way it sits when you are just sitting there?
