I want to buy a YZ450 but the seat is too high for me. A 450 seat is almost 39 inches compared to my 35 inch DR-Z seat (which is a bit high too). Can someone please give me a list of things I can do to make a 450 lower? This is really limiting my purchasing because I want the big power and long travel suspension without the high seat. Thanks, Ben

Uh, there's a problem...

The rear wheel is 26.7 inches tall, and the bike has 12 inches of suspension travel, so anything positioned over the wheel has to be 38.8 inches off the ground to clear it.
