Average R6 rider size

How tall and how much do you weigh? And you can also state what suspension set-up you have that fits you best.

I'm 6' 2" and weigh 175lbs, all stock set up right now..haven't gotten to mess with it yet.

I'm 6'2" 235lbs using the stock set up. Been running it for over a year, but I highly doubt it is set up right, but I don't know how to set it up. On the bright side..... I am looking to get a complete Ohlins set up when I get off my deployment.

I'm 5"8 at 130lbs
i took my bike to a "cresson track", and i had one of the instruction tuned my suspension to my weight and height for $40.

after i got it tuned, the ride home was amazing.
