Bike height

Can someone with a good handling VTR take a measurement from the ground to the bottom of the crankcase?

I think my bike is very tall compared to most. I have the triples somewhat high on the tubes and a Penske with 2 spacers at the top.

I want a baseline height for when I do a fork swap and know some standard to go by.

Also a measurement to the bottom of the lower triple would help too, or some point that could be compared.

Thanks to anyone who can do this odd request.

The bike sitting on the stand, measuring on the left side, I have 9,5'' from ground to the oïl pan/crank case seam or joint if you prefer. Once again taken from the left side, from ground to bottom of triple tree, I have 26''.

I may not be the perfect example since I run 900RR front end, with a custom made triple tree. However, we will be speaking of mm in différences from stock to my setup. So this should get you started pretty close.
