One unfortunate thing about dirt bikes is that they only come in one size. And you could say one size does not fit all when it comes to riders. If you are a shorter rider and the stock seat height causes you issues, there are a range of options that can help with altering the height of your dirt bike seat, one of the most effective being a lowering link. Off road bikes by design have a quite high seat height mainly due to the need to maintain sufficient ground clearance. Fitting a lowering kit creates a lower ride height, while still allowing the rear shock and bike suspension as a whole to perform as it was designed. Both motocross and enduro riders can benefit from bike lowering, and using an aftermarket link kit helps the rear end maintain close to stock suspension travel. Here at MXstore we stock a solid range of lowering linkages for your rear suspension suitable whether you ride a Yamaha, Suzuki, Honda, Kawasaki, KTM or Husqvarna. Check out our range from Devol, Zeta, Kroozr and others.
There are other ways to customize the motorcycle to better accommodate shorter riders in general as well: raising the foot pegs, ensuring the handlebars are in the rear most mount of the triple clamps and putting in a lower seat foam option all also offer significant comfort improvements for those of shorter statures. If you need any help sorting of these items, or are in need of anything else for your dirt bike, MXstore are here to help. With one of Australia's largest ranges of dirt bike parts and accessories, whether it's a new set of fork seals, a kick stand or fresh rear fender on your wish list, we can get you sorted.
