For my 02 wr250, I bought handlebar risers for the front handlebars and that got the front end an extra inch of room for the fork tubes to slide up and lower the front. Also Mountain Motorsports makes a lowering link for the rear But I havent installed one yet. http://www.mountainm...oweringlink.php

I found the seat cutting and front tubes to be enough for now and I'm 5'4" with only 27" of inseam. I use mine for tight forest trail stuff in the Northwest.

There's a thread on the 250F forums about the lowering link. I've got one on my fiancee's 250F and it works great.
