Jebbins correct I believe for an average height! This of course is measured at the pegs(rear) and about 20 inches forward of the pegs(front)

Your ride height really depends on the track conditions and your quad set-up. The numbers above are a good reference point, but you need to consider tacky or loose track, axle width, compound of rear tires, compression of rear shock, and dont forget to keep an eye out on your rear bump stop. Generally, the looser the track, the higher the bike. This allows for more shock travel. But lets not forget about that swaybar setup either. Get your ride height to high and your center of gravity could throw you off. Play around this stuff and don't be afraid to experiment!!

thanks

1 problem i see is we dont get much playing around time and the tracks dont let us get a test and tune day. the one place i mostly race at i hold my own in the novice class and walked away with a couple second places for the year/ plus i finished second for the year in points. i got a sway bar but havent mounted it yet due to all the busy things i have on the front becasue i race hare scrambles as well. i do lower it, have flat track tires, 1 set both 18's and a set for stager.

im afraid to change because of the quick pase we race at, im affraid to hurt my current set up and lose.
