    Default Dropping the forks !

    Hi
    Any info on dropping the front forks on an 2003 ST4s.
    I am in the process of rebuilding it and have dropped the forks 5 mm more than standard anyone tried more.
    Being a short arse raising the rear is something I would prefer not to do.

    Well, just an observation that dropping the forks makes the front end more nervous and can induce tank-slappers.

    Never felt I had to alter my Fireblade steering.
