Kind of a dumb question as to any bike can be customized.I'm looking to buy a 250F. I am 5,4 and about 157 pounds. Which bike with minimum mods (shaved seat etc) do you think fits a short rider best? I was thinking Honda, but it crossed my mind that maybe a KX or KTM would be the best? What do you think.

I had the same dilemma back in 2013 and went with the crf and hated that bike. KTM lowered their seat height since then and that would be my choice now.

Jmart has adjusted his pegs. You can too. Anybike you want.

My wife is about your height and we went with a Husky fc250 and did an internal shock mod that llowered the bike an inch. Worked great and didn't mess with suspension performance.

I’m the exact opposite and went with the Kx250f. Adjustable peg and bar height. I’m 6”3 and 180lb

I would go with any bike that does not require a suspension mod and link , all of those things seriously affect the ergonomics of the bikes . that being said im very biased on honda , but i will tell you this , a vet rider friend of mine rides nothing but ktm 250f , he is exact same height as you , and same weight . He has been riding them since 2009 , so i would imagine checking out the Husky or ktms ...

I read somewhere that the Kawi feels very compact.
