Just found a new track in the area and the jumps are 3-4 feet high. One is a table top. Does anyone jump this high with a stock xx?

I think i've done 2-3 feet at the dunes maybe a couple at 4ft (or it's my imagination) but I'm 200lb and bottom out the stock suspension when I start going for more air. Most of the jumps I enjoy have been uphill but 25-40ft long for a softer landing.

do it, don't worry about it and don't hesitate. Ask others what they do if you have to, and then just hit it. Best jumps to learn on are table tops, that way you have a flat landing to hit, until you get comfortable enough to hit the back side of it, meaning more air and further distance, and then some drop offs are nice too. Then comes time for the doubles haha. She can handle it, trust me. I jumped off a "cliff" in the gravel bed and landed quite a ways down, kind of scary on this the way the front end pushes but as soon as she touched down I hit the gas and looped around. That was w/ the stock suspension as well.

i have a 20ft gap with my freestyle ramp that throws you up about 8 ft high and that was it for the suspension it was bottoming out. also have a 40 ft table top that pops you about 4-6 feet up and it handled that just fine.

I bow to you big jumpers. You all make it look and sound so easy. LMAO

I am scared shitless to jump and get hurt. You all say the landing is soft...well I guess I have to pull up my briches and go for it. At least the shocks will be able to take it. I think the table top idea is the best approach. I've only had the bike a month and still getting use to it. Plus my age does not help. LOL

I guess I will not be happy until a break a bone on this beast. :)

I did a couple of 3ft jumps and its good, although the suspension is not the greatest for jumps, I think its too soft in the front, its still good and its the best part of riding a quad, I think.
I just love going in a sand pit, going up a steep high hill and finish it with a nice jump, its awesome.

I have never looked down, I think my biggest is about 10' above a table top.Jill was supposed to take pictures but could not watch ! The only thing i could say to go off was it was about 5' above a standard 40' steel shipping container. Kinda of a safe , smooth take off and landing and if you got it wrong both over or under jumping it ,you landed safe. Not to many of them about .:D
