Default Ride height for Hammer S

Hey guys, save me a trip to the dealers.

Does anyone know or can anyone measure the ride height from the rear axle to the rear guard of a Hammer S?

I think the aftermarket rear shock has dropped the distance so I want to raise it back up to stock.

Thank you.

I love the smell of Freedom in the morning... smells... smells like... Victory!

I use the 2/3 rule to set up shock sag.
Jack it up till wheel off ground and measure axle the rear fender.
Divide it by 3 and then set it up so you have 2/3 of that total travel with you sitting on the bike.
Thats how I do it tho for 2-up most of the time I set it a little stiffer solo to allow for my passenger.
Hope that makes sense

Hi MBX, so if 21 inches jacked up you make it 14 inches sitting on the bike.

I'll give that a look see.

Thanks mate.
