I found out last night at a "stunter"meeting in Houston that my bike was lowered before I bought it (friend of the previous owner). Can someone give me the stock ride heights from their bike from say the bottom of the rear pegs to ground or similar. i would like the bike at the factory height if possible. I have a 70 on the front and a 190 on the back if it matters. I posted a pic in the appearance section (its the black / yellow striped one) if someone could look at that and see if it looks lowered and by how much. I could take a better side shot on pavement if that would help and post it.

It didnt look like it was, but as you say it it hard to tell from a pic.
Ride height as standard is measured as seat height, from the manual of your model it should be 820mm (32.3in)
I think as standard an R6 does feel low, Iam only 5 10" and the bike feels so small, I often ride my mates CBR RR and that feels really high up, I kinda like the 'sitting in' postion rather than the 'perched on top of' feeling that the CBR gives, don't know why.
Anyway, hope the measurements help you, also it could just be camera angle, but your rear sprocket looked huge?

Did a 520 conversion while rebuilding it 15/50 setup. Shouldnt look huge...
I am assuming the seat measurment is in the middle/top so I will measure tomorrow.
