Hi all! Checking in from the Southwest 'burbs of Chicagoland.
Just picked up my black 250 yesterday from DGY motorsports and I am super-stoked to get comfy with it. I'm 5'4" with stumpy legs, so the height is a little bit of an issue for me right now. My hubby shaved down the seat last night but that didn't do much for me. I'm going to be watching soupys like a hawk for a lowering link, they don't have one for the 250 yet. In the mean time, my toes will be getting a **** of a workout. Here's a picture of her and a picture of me looking skeptically at her because she's a bit taller than I'd hoped, :eek:.

Happy riding!

Welcome to the forum Krn ! Until the aftermkt kicks in with a lowering link or other devices you will need to adjust. Good thing the bike is so light. You may want to try the leaning technique which calls for you to come to a stop with your right foot on the peg and brake...then lean your body slightly to the left and use your left foot to rest on the ground.....
