When I did this the consensus was to keep the chassis geometry neutral with a drop on both ends using lowering links. Handling improved noticeably and making sharper slow speed turns is enhanced with the lower CG. I have no idea what the effect would be with just a dropped front. May be a moot point but does anybody have experience with this setup to share?But having the front a bit lower than a stock rear improves the bike's aerodynamics as the fairing is less prone to lift.
Many people have lowered the front end only. Most like it better. I only did it after many people had reported more stability. That seemed contrary to known rake and trail physics. Then I reasoned it must be about aerodynamics because it works. It's free and relatively easy to try it and see. 10-15mm seems to be the sweet spot but ABS bikes with fork braces are limited to 7-10mm due to the brake junction under the bottom triple clamp.May be a moot point but does anybody have experience with this setup to share?
