he's moving to his mothers, i don't really think that he is that into riding, at least not right now anyway so i am strongly considering selling it.

set your sag on the yz to 100mm and get a trailtech kickstand. those are two things that helped me out with my yz and short legs. you can also take a knife to the seat foam to shorted the bike some. slide the forks up in the triples as high as you can too. on my kx, i installed a lowering link, and that made a world of difference without noticeably killing the bike's handling.

I have kicked around the idea of modifying the kick start levers on bikes for making them easier for a short person to use. I'm not sure how possible that would be.

welcome to the short guy on a tall dirtbike club.

I've actually been to the store in KC. They are great folks. They do add shipping at the end, though.
