    Height of bike to handlebars ?

    I'm looking at a camper that's got a rear garage, I stupidly forgot to measure my bike first, 2017 250 exc, and now the garage looks smaller than it did in the pictures.

    Can anyone tell me the height to the handlebars or even a roughish guess?

    Thanks

    Nice one thanks mate.

    Door is 110mm but inside is 120. That will be fine if I fit a holeshot device to keep the front down. Thanks

    Until you hit bump that release it when driving along. You'll have some fun getting it out then!

    You could just bleed the air out the compressed fork? It won't pressurise the seal then. I'd fit a catch strap to it as well in case of a rogue road bump...
    This is all I can see when I open the throttle:

    Keep out the way!

    Lol I hadn't thought of that haha
    I'll ratchet strap it down then lol
    Compressing it 10mm won't do much harm surely. Strapping a bike to trailer would compress the forks more.
    In the past I've fitted a small wheel Barrow wheel to the front instead of the 21". Works a treat but just the hassle of swapping wheels.

    If it's just a couple of centimetres then Just let the tyre down before putting in the van, then pump it up when you get to the track.

    I had this idea of the ratchet strap before and discussed it with KIY. He pointed out that when the bikes are shipped from Austria in creates the forks are compressed and it doesn't do any harm so in theory doing it now for transit should not be an issue. Maybe just bleed them before riding.

    Forks are designed to compress thats why they are there , just use a pull strap with a hook on each end from the bottom of the fork leg up the the bars
