A Bike For My Short Friend

A friend of mine who is 5'4 or 5'5 is looking for a dual sport. I am steering him towards a drz400s or dr650 because of reliability, adequate power and seat height. Would he still require a lowering link with either of these 2 bikes?

Have him sit on them. IF he's going to use it on the street, he'll want to double foot it-even if on tip toes. Some folks will say different, but, one footing or leaning, gets old real quick. Don't discount Xt225, Xt250, etc.
