Yamaha How much should bike sag without weight?

Recommended Posts

I have a 2007 YFZ450. I know it should sag a little bit, but if I lift mine from the rear grab bar, I have to lift it a good 5-6 inches before the back tires come off the ground. How much should I be able to pull it up before the tires come up?

That sounds like to much, but usually its determined by the ride height when the rider is on the atv, so what you can do is stand on the foot pegs with your hands on the bars (dont sit down, make sure you are standing up) and have a friend measure from the ground up to the bottom of the frame under the foot pegs, that measurement can be anywhere from 7 to 9" depending on what you use the atv for, and about 1/4 to 1/2" higher in the front under the radiator. If that is right i wouldn't worry about how much it free sags
