I am 5' 7" and 160 LBS with a 30 inch inseam and proud to say that i have a '93 XR650L with only 5,000 mi. I have installed a White Bors. lowering link, dropped the front forks an inch, shaved the seat about two inches and have the rear spring unsprung to it's max. I still find the beast quite tall, i can barely tip toe with both feet. Before i get myself some high heels, i was wondering if i can lace up the rear hub to 17 inch rims only on the rear to further lower the bike? It currently has the stock 2.15 x 18 rims on a 4.50 x 18 Kenda tire. I have a gold anodized 2.50 x 17 rims and plan to fit it with 5.10 x 17 tire. My question is, will this significantly lower the bike? i'm thinking an inch or is this a waste of time and money. Is there a lower profile tire for the 18 rim? if so what size tire? Lastly, would there be any clearance issues with the 5.10 x 17 on the Honda XR650L? Any advice would be greatly appreciated.
