Do you KNOW, whether or Not it was a Second Production Run or FIRST production run?
The Second production run 2014 has STIFFER suspension springs for two-up or heavy touring gear and a Widened Seat, at the rear 2/3rds.
The First production run 2014 has the Standard 'Softer' suspension, which is STIFFER than the old style '87-07 KLR.
Both could be lowered, 'some'. For a Fee.
You might go back to the dealership and discuss your 'options'.
The older '87-'07 models also had a softer seat, allowed one to 'sink-in' a little more. I have the 'original' 1987 -A1 with a Newer/Harder seat, even makes my 36" legs 'stretch' sometimes.
Modify at "YOUR OWN RISK"!
Still riding my 1987 KL650-A1. 85,000+ miles & counting
