Years for Adjustable seat height

Recommended Posts

Was wondering how long this has been an option. I am considering a DR as a second bike, maybe used. At my height, 5'7" maybe, I will want this option.

Thanks

If I am not mistaken 1996-2006 DR650SE are all the same except for starter clutch ('98-early '99) and base gasket (03' ?). The answer to your adjustable seat height question should be 96-current if I am not wrong.

I need clarification on my assumptions from the DR650 experts please!!

The seat is not adjustable. The rear shock has two positions and the forks are adjustable shaving off about 1.5" from the overall height. The 96-07's all have this feature.

I'm about your size and have a '96 set to the lower suspension setting. I also have the OEM gel saddle that takes it down even a bit more. I haven't ridden one with a stock saddle, but if, even with the suspension in the low position it's still a bit too tall, the gel saddle is a good way to go.
