Pull rod length

Does anyone happen to know what the length of stock pull rod is, I've been running a modded one that was on the quad when I got it and it seems kinda long

You probably have a rocket ron lengthened pull rod. He modifies it to be longer and places the quad perfectly 7" off the ground as the quad sits a bit too high with the stock pull rod length.

At the very back of the belly skid, closest to the swinger, I'm at 7". Does that sound about right or should I measure from a different location?

If you're riding MX the general rule of thumb is that you should be at approx. 7" at the very bottom of your frame where the nerf bar pegs are with you sitting on the quad. So sounds like you are just about there so I think you're good.

I can measure my pull rod length tomorrow and let you know, I have the lengthened pull rod. The rocket ron lengthened pull rod is about 3/4" longer than the stock one.

Btw, is your modded pull rod welded by any chance? If so, I'd recommend you not use it. Yesterday in MX track my modded pull rod broke and my suspension fell out on a double. Not a pleasant moment, I can tell you that much.

Apparently, a common issue with these quads and pull rods and seems the Walsh pull rod is the way to go if you don't want to get yourself hurt.
