dropping front forks

well I dropped the front forks just under a 1/4 of a inch in the tree's, man what a difference it makes, also helped I put a new tire on, couldn't really push it cause of how cold it is, but turn in is so much easier now

Nice, that means you dropped 5 or 6 mm. I'm going to drop mine 10mm.
Glad you're happy with it.

I think you guys are actually discussing raising the fork tubes in the triple clamps which drops the front end, reduces rake and quickens steering.

It may be a pig, but it's a pig with a rocket in it's ass!
