How can I lower my 1985 YZ250?

First off this is my first time posting here, So if I do something wrong please let me know.

I just picked up a 1985 YZ250 a couple days ago, the first thing I noticed is how tall the bike is..(I'm 5' 5") is there any way to lower the bike? If I left anything useful information out please let me know

Did you set the sag? It should drop 4" when you climb on. Most likely it's not set up for your weight, so until you get the right spring(s) it'll all be compromises.

How do you set the sag?

YouTube is your friend. Those guys are better at explaining than I am.
