I am purchasing a wr426. I have short legs. Is ther a way to lower the seat height an inch or so without much loss in performance? It is not critical as long as I am moving, but I see difficulties in the tighter trails if I stall it, which I will do from time to time.

For the earlier models there are some different height seat foams available. You can also convert to YZ style seat and tank. This will allow the bike to turn/allow you to get far enough forward on the bike to turn. The YZ seat is a little narrower, so it help you touch the ground. IMHO!

You could also carve your existing foam down or buy an extra foam to do it and lower your triple clamp to between 8-10 mm to help make tighter turns.

agree with bill on the YZ seat-narrow seat = get your feet down.

i've also noticed that there is, with a little modification, room for the rear subframe to be lowered in it's lower anchor points. i reckon this would lower the seat by 1/2" at the midpoint. have a look at it,

even my airbox sits on the carb easier at the top than the bottom.

the other blokes on the website would soften the shock off but i don't think you should compromise ANYTHING if you can help it.
