Nice!!! I have been wanting to jump mine but I havent had the suspension sprung to my weight, I'm afraid I might screw something up

Dude dont worry about that. I got stock suspension. Sure its not a nice landing but its still fun. Actually with my 21" in the front it scrapes my header when my forks are fully compressed. :headshake

I'm on a sumo and I also weigh in at around 220lbs with gear on, I'm also just being careful because I've only had it 2 weeks :lol: It wasn't new but I need to get some guards and sliders before i hit anything to hard

My DRZ is bone stock suspension wise. I only go about 155 lbs w/o gear and the bike lands the loading doc drop onto flat grass no problemmo. Just go for it! If you do bottom out, you won't "hurt" anything other than your ankles maybe. :bannana:

Jump that thing! :bannana: You won't hurt it. I'm 230# before gear on bone stock suspension and all I've managed to do is drag my heels and wear all the paint off the bottom of the frame rails.

Check the last bit of this short video for some track jumps, and my other vids for various suspension views in action (and plenty of riding on dirt on slicks!).
