Nice slide show, your shocks are a LOT different than mine!
One the ground clearance my '07 650 right now with the preload at the softest setting has 10.5" on the rear, advertised clearance for my is 12.5" and I believe that's with the preload at the middle setting.
But take into consideration tires, stock tires are 26", my replacement were supposed to be 26" but measured 25" so I lost a 1/2" there (split the diameter), when new the tread was 1-1/8" and I'm down to about an 1/8 now so there goes another 1" (that's actual tread lost below the axle). When I crank the preload to the stiffest setting I think I gained about an 1" to 1.5" so with new tires I wouldn't be far off from the advertised clearance. Does it sound like I figured that right?
