pretty much what zero z said. its a table top so you wont need to worry about coming up short. If you have enough area to get to passed second gear it should be all right. How long is this table top gonna be. If its gonna be long then you will have to move it. Also instead of doing it by hand dont you have a skidster or something to move it with?
I live like 15min from a practice MX track......what i do is when i jump my Z is just pull back on the bars and gas it...i havnt riden on the MX track yet, so i need to see how it jumps there before i can really say what the best way to jump it is...
I have to get skids and nerfs before i can go to the MX track...when i had my mojave, i was going to take it there...the day i was going to go my mom said i need shin and knee pads, and a chest protector...so i went out and spent almost all my money on them...then it was too late to go to the track...i never made it there on the mojave...so once i get my nerfs im going to ride there...
Why do u need skids for an MX track? I can why u need nerf bars but the tracks shold be groomed and there isn't supposed be to stuff sticking out. If u need to know the Z jumps really good and the soft suspension is nice.
i been jumping alot lately. im up to 40 ft. i always nail it hard and lean back and off the seat, and when i land i use my body as a shock absorber. DON'T let off the gas at the end of your launch. if you do you will go face first in the landing. sometime i pull up on the handlebars right before i land sometimes so that does't happen. giving it gas in the air will keep the front up, no joke. see my pictures below in the link. i've landed with the back wheels first and the fronts way up in the air, be careful not to let your body go over the front when when you land. most important keep your feet on the footpegs. i ran over my left foot dragging me under the bike. i ripped my leg open with the foot peg. i had 7 stitches put in. i healed up now. practice small jumps till you know what you are capable of first. i can man handle my z pretty good now and i only way 165 lbs. i got pretty good at jumping in 2nd gear, but now its 3rd gear, (you jump farther). be safe!!!
