In this article we have explained all the options you have to lower the height of a motorcycle like this one

Also in the case of the Yamaha Tracer 900 you can ask an upholsterer to modify the seat of your bike and reduce the thickness of the foam that composes it.

Be careful with this solution because the foam of the seat is intended to protect the lumbar and back of the driver, especially during long trips.

Another alternative is to change the factory linkage to lower the bike considerably and bring the seat closer to the ground.

Searching online we have found kits to lower this Yamaha model that cost about 140 €. The seat height is reduced by 15 to 50 mm due to the lowered position.

The risk of this change to the structure of the motorcycle is that the entire geometry of the vehicle is modified with possible safety risks in its operation. The bike has been developed and produced with a different type of proportions in mind and may not respond as it should at some point, especially in corners.
