I have a friend who's looking at a second-hand 250R as her first bike. Problem is, she's quite short; even lowering the bike as much as the suspension allows, she only barely touches the ground with the tip of her feet.
Are low-height seats an off-the-shelf item for the 250R, or would she need to have one custom-made (no doubt at great expense)?

Also, I have an ER-6F/650R with handlebars, not clip-ons; since said friend has said that the riding position on the 250R seems a bit too sporty to her, I'm wondering if one can adapt 650R handlebars to the 250R in order to have a more comfortable ride. I know people sometimes do this for the Suzuki SV650S, removing the clip-ons and mounting the handlebars from the non-fairied SV650...

New generation. The risers are probably better than nothing, but I'm still thinking handlebars would be better, if it's possible to perform the modification at all.

You can do a lot of modification to get her to be able to practically flat foot the bike if you are willing to spend some money and do some work....maybe a just new style of bike like a small cruiser?
