Hi SDPA_Pet,
The length cutoff will depend upon how much you gain while aligning the reads to genome [if your experiment is not a denovo assembly]. Smaller read lengths will increase the chance of alignments at multiple loci, which might not help you.
You can refer this publication: An Extensive Evaluation of Read Trimming Effects on Illumina NGS Data Analysis []. The authors have used 70% of original read length as the length cutoff.
