I'm looking to gain a little ground clearance. What are the longest shocks that will fit on my bike?

I believe it's 13". That's what I have on mine and I wouldn't have anymore swingarm clearance around the fuel tank if I went any higher. Do you have stock shocks now?

Yup, I've got stock shocks & a stock tank. I'm planning on upgrading to progressive 440's, and I'd like to go a little taller while i'm at it.

13"(stock) is as high as you can go without creating issues the 440's will really make a big difference over stock.

Yup, if you go higher, you'll hit your fuel tank...that's bad. Are you having an issue with scraping anything? I have to say I haven't had any scraping issues with mine but I do have the shocks cranked up as high as possible.

Mine bottoms out when jumping...but only on the dirt track. If I jump on the street I'm good...
They make a 260 knobby???:D
