If your talking about how far they sag when you just center the bike? Then only going by memory here around 4 or so inches. Also assuming we are talking about the OEM stock forks? However I was told not to run any air in them as it doesn't do anything except contribute to premature failure of the seals. So that 4 inches of sag was with no air in them. I am know expert on motorcycle suspensions though. Are you looking to upgrade the OEM forks?
