I was at Buffalo range this weekend with a couple buddies. I have a couple questions. First off i ride an 02 yz250. We were doing some practrice jumps on the large table top at the end of the track. I can clear this jump but i can't get any height out of it. My riding buddie has an 01 yz250 and he is jumping least 3 feet higher than my self. I know he is seat bounceing. My question stems from my ability to stand at the lip. I have a hard time making the transiotion from sitting to standing.. The bike feels ackward for a couple seconds while i am doing this. If feels like i am pulling on the bars to standup. If in fact i do this on the lip at the wrong time. I am worried the bike will be nutty on me. Is there anyway to make this transition easier. Better yet do any of you guys have the same problem? The geometry on my bike seems wrong for me.. I'm tall, 6'2, 175... I need a little more height and i will be satified.. Anything would be helpful.. Thanks guys..
