It depends if you are lowering to be able to touch the ground or lowering the centre of gravity.

if it is to get your feet on the ground, shave the seat as all geometrical settings will remain the same.

Alter linkages or fork settings ( positional changes in the triple clamps )
and the handling may alter.

Otherwise buy a Mini Bike.

if you can, just shave the seat...these things scrape pegs too easily as it is...

I've never understood the reasoning behind lowering a bike that much...just stand on one foot when you stop. not trying to be a smartass but my girlfriend is your height and she rode my old DRZ no problems...

To me, the change in handling (for the worse) is not worth it...
