Looking for some thoughts on which way to go re: lowering the seat height on an '01 KDX 200. I've seen differing opinions on this subject - Hoping I can get somehwat of a consensus. I'm 5-8. Just got rid of an '01 KX 125 for this bike, so now I can hopefully ride some of the 5D's at HP without by riding buddies' help. What do y'all think about cutting seat foam vs. a lowering link, or a combination of the two? If I can lower things an inch or so I think I'll be good. I welcome your thoughts.

Cutting the seat ruins an already poor seat. Lowering links ruin the handling, regardless what Kouba claims. The best way to lower one is to shorten the forks and shock internally. This is the most expensive way but by far the best, actually *does* make the bike handle better and is fully reversible.
In fact, if lowered internally, you can run a taller seat on the KDX which it desperately needs.
