The problem is the Ohlins. Not that it isn't a great shock, but it actually increases the seat height from stock. One of the ADV'ers near me just bought a used X with an Ohlins and I had a chance to ride it. Holy smokes was it tall! I'm only 5'8", but managed just fine with the stock setup. But with that Ohlins I couldn't even get tip toes down. He actually just ordered a lowered Hyperpro.

So you sell it Royal Tiger and then buy a Hyperpro. Or, if you have a suspension shop nearby, maybe they can shorten it.
