First determine if the spring on the shock is correct for your weight and riding style. This will be a starting point for getting your bike to the proper height.

Good luck, and keep us updated with what you find. :thumbsup:

Have you set the sag on the rear suspension? That should set the correct height at the rear without rider. Sorry, I should have mentioned that first. :facepalm:

stronger spring (that won't compress as easily) may be what you need to get your bike to it's proper height with rider.

Suspension setup is super important on dirtbikes, so it pays to adjust all the settings. Again, sorry for my oversight. :thumbsup:
