zanra posted a topic in What motorcycle should I buy?I'm looking to get into the dirt bike market. I currently have a bike for the road - a Suzuki TU250X. This has quite a low seat height - 770mm or roundabouts - and this is comfortable for me. I could go an extra few centimetres particularly because dirt bikes are generally more narrow (so my legs won't be as wide apart) and I'd have thick dirt bike boots on. The dirt bike that I do get needs to be road legal as I want to ride it in national parks etc. rather then just private property. There are plenty of road registrable dirt bikes out there but the seat heights are insane. Most being around 870mm - 940mm which is way to high for me. I'm 5'2" with an inseam of about 63cm (I think). So, as you can imagine it's hard finding something that fits - with most bikes leaving my feet dangling. I have been looking at the Honda CRF250L, as its stock seat height is smaller then most. It looks like something that is marketed at the weekend trail rider rather than hard core enduro or motocross rider and that's fine by me - I just want something easy to ride. Its stock seat height is 875mm and I want to know what the best ways of lowering it - I don't weigh too much so lowering the suspension is okay (I know it affects the ride). Does anyone have suggestions? I also see the Suzuki DR200S - with a seat height of 845mm (which is lower) but I have to say I'm not keen on the way it looks... Silly I know. Suggestions on lowering this one? Otherwise, are there any other suggestions of bike model and their lowering techniques.? I'd rather not have a bike less than 200cc's. 250cc-300cc's is ideal. Any help would be amazing. I have been looking for some time but I am striking out. Thanks in advance!
Hi Thump masters I’m the fng. I’ve only ridden a few bikes recently but one toe on the ground when at a stop is messin with my head. I need to get more of at least one foot on the ground when I stop. I’m 5’6” and am wondering how much drop links will lower a seat. My research is taking me to the Yamaha xt 250 for over all dual sport with a 31.5” seat height stock. Most other dual sport bikes are higher. I haven’t bought anything yet but am ready. Tell me what you know. Thanks , Mike
Hello guys I'm new here. I just want to get more information before I decide what to buy. I like the drz400 but the seat height is like 930mm or 950mm ? I'm 5ft8 (33in inseam) 35.5in with boots My friend got drz400s and I tried to sit on the seat Like this one there is actually no issue but I can barely touch the ground with my full foot I stand with my toes Is there anything I can do to decrease the seatheight by 2in's or more? that would be cool Or I should get drz650 which is the seat length is 880mm ? I really didn't like the 650
