I'm selling my '99 SV650, and the potential buyer's height is 5". So, we were wondering what mods can be done without altering too much the bike's handling.

Get a gel seat should help somewhat...

Suggestions?

By links do you mean wishbones?
By wishbones, do you mean dogbones?
Im pretty sure we are talking the same thing, the 2 linkin pieces of metal coming off the bottom of the shock.
They make ones that have 3 adjustable positions in order to lower the bike.
around $60-$75 iirc

Well my wife is 5' 0" and we had to take most of the foam out of the seat and I put a different set of dogbones in to lower it a little more. I also keep the shock at min. preload when she rides it. She can't flatfoot it but she can get both feet to touch.

I am 5'1'' and i had dogbones put on mine and the front end was lowered. I still was tip toeing so we took out about 2 inches of foam in the seat and now i can flat foot it!!! They also sell a lower seat so you dont have to shave the stock one. I havnt really noticed a huge handleing change but im a beginer rider. id rather be able to touch!

her is a pic of my seat and my rear end. its hard to tell just how low it is because when i took the pic the fender was off, but trust me its low!!!
