Mine is about 12.0" in the front and only around 10.75" in the rear. Thats on my concrete garage floor. If I "pick up" the rear, it settles down to around 11.0", not the advertised 11.8". I only have around 30 miles or so on it. And my tires/wheels are stock. Just would like to see if anybody checked their ground clearance.

Yeah, I noticed the samething when I first got mine and I measured it. I don't remember what the measurements were but it was close to what you got. Maybe they measured it on the sides, below the doors.

Yeah it is possible they measured from a different area, any way to find out? maybe asking our dealers will let us know what Yamaha did.

My 2017 model with 2 hours on it has 11.5 in the front and 11.5 in the rear, sitting as it was last ridden on a level concrete floor. If I lift the back and let it drop it goes to 11.8 inches. That's with an empty bed.

I clear a 5 gallon bucket, but I gotta have aired up tires. Got about 1.5 cm to spare. That's how yuppies roll.

What!??! Did you go the graveyard and dig my Mom up?!!!

I blame Rob and James for making me need new tires & safety harnesses.
