Hi, thinking of getting a XR650L and have a few questions: I'm vertically challenged - 5'7" - will I have a problem getting on the bike? I've read that the seat is around 37" or so. I know lowering links are an option but I've never used them before. Does using them shorten suspension travel or cause anything else detrimental to the bike? Also, I'll probably be looking for a used XR650L between the years of 96-02 can anyone tell me if there are any differences in the various years along with anything I might need to look out for? Thanks.
