Has anyone lowered the friont end through the triples?

I lowered the rear and just thought that by lowering the front a little, the geometry wouldn;t change to much and also would not let the front be too light since by doing that the weight is shifted towards tha rear.

Anyone recomend lowering the front? Felt any differences in handling?

What would be a safe margin? 1"; 0.5"?

Thoughts? Ideas?

[*]Suggest you use the SEARCH function for the safe limit. Too much and you'll dent your frt fender at the brake hose junction under the triple tree![/list]

I lowered mine nearly an inch. 7/8 maybe. I havehad no problems with the fender hitting the brake hardwarein over 2 years of riding.

Dont forget the pegs will be that closer to the ground. Noticed easier peg scraping after the drop.

Just be careful when torqing the clamps down. I lowered mine and when torqing the clamps to the proper specs the triple tree cracked.

My wife's Warrior, had the back lowered using PCS lowering kit, the front is lowered 3/4 of an inch, via the triple clamps. And then the front wheel was swaped with a '99 R6 17 inch wheel. Great set up for the short of inseam, and the bike feels lighter, with the smaller front wheel.
