IIRC, Phil removes an internal bumper stop, which allows him to adjust
the stock clevis enough to give good ride height.
(I need to start keeping a notebook for each of my bikes.)
I guess what I could do is put the front wheel in the chok, put
a yardstick behind the rear wheel and a video camera on the other
side, and then jump on the seat as hard as I can. :)
