So I know that a 250 or a 450 super Moto would be way to big for me I’d be able to handle the power the bike its just tall. Thoughts on redoing the frame to fit a 450 into a 125 so I’d at least be able to sit on the bike and be able to ride around and yes it sounds wild but I’d love to do it. Unless anyone has suggestions one what I should do. Btw I’m 5’2 but I don’t really want a street bike or anything else. Just want to know some thoughts on what I should do. Unless there’s way I can lower a 450 enough for me to fit on it

125s are the same height, unless youre talking about the little 125 4 strokes.

Cheapest way is to shave the seat foam and make up some suspension limiters. The rear suspension is a 3:1 ratio so a 10mm spacer will lower the height 30mm, then you need a 30mm spacer up front.

Do not attempt to lower with the shock preload or raise the forks way up in the clamps.

Suspension mods and shaved seat. Modded sub frame. I know drz riders love the kouba links to lower. Suspension shops can limit shock travel. Race supermotos usually get mods to lower.

Have you looked into bikes like beta x trainer or ktm freeride? Lower to start.
