I have an 09 MP3 500 and was interested in lowering the seat height. There is a gel seat of of a 2016 for sale and was wondering if it would fit my bike and exactly how much lower it is

With a piaggio gel seat on my 2016 500, the seat height measures exactly 32 inches. I cannot get both feet flat down with my 30 inseam. The seat feels wide also.

The 2016 Gel won't fit your 09 MP3/500...
If you want to go that route, you could pick up a used seat for your 09 MP3/500 and have it cut down. Shocks may be a cheaper solution.
Search "Hagon", and I think you will find my Old Thread on the Hagon Shocks.
