So I am seriously considering buying an XT225 for Bonnie Abbzug, like, soon. The issue, however, is that she is 5'0 tall and a new rider- she's been learning on a cool little 1978 Yamaha 100 enduro- a fun little bike but she's getting to the point that she wants to go farther, faster. On the enduro she can easily flatfoot and feels really comfortable, but the XT is pretty tall. I know you can slide the forks up, soften the preload, cut down the seat. Is there anything like the lowering links available for KLR's out there to lower the xt even more? She's just not confident enough yet putting only one foot down. We may go look at one this weekend, so any quick replies would be appreciated. Thanks!!!!
