How to Lower a CR125

So my excuse to buy a dirt bike was to teach my girl how to ride
I bought a CR125 and she cant even get on it...I tried to teach her yesterday and she couldnt even tippie toe....need to lower it at least 2 inches...
I notices that the rear shock is on a coil over system...if I turn the two "coil over jam nuts" will this lower the bike...I dont care if it will mess up the handling of the bike as this is just temporary to teach her...or will someone let me borrow a ttr 125 for a weekend while they use my cr125?

Yes you can lower the rear that way and I am pretty sure that with her size and weight it might be better. You could also drop it till the forks bottom on the bars and cut the seat foam down and recover. You will need a really good staple gun.

Flat screw driver and some channel locks there are two lock nuts. The easy way would probaly be to take the whole sub frame off. It is easy and will teach you a lot about the bike.

I have a ttr125 you can borrow for a weekend. Don't worry about dropping it or wrecking it. I have taught a ton of people how to ride on it so it's used to noob-abuse.
