KTM 520 EXC Lowering Tips?

Recommended Posts

Does anyone have any tips or suggestions for a "short" rider? I am 5'7'' and have trouble reaching the ground on my 2001 KTM 520EXC. Is there any way to lower the bike so my feet reach on the trails or start the bike? (i.e. suspension adjustment, cutting the frame, carving the seat out) - I think I am after 1.5 to 2.0 inches max.

Thanks KTM fans!

Find a good suspension shop and tell them what you want. Be prepared to pay for it though, to lower correctly takes more than just shortening the components. Springs and valving have to be adjusted to compensate for the reduced travel. Lowering the subframe and seat will help too.

Or you could just nail blocks to your boots....
