I like my bike dropped in the front. This puts more weight on the front tire making for a safer ride. The bike can get very light in the front when it is fully loaded for touring. What I'm asking is what is a good drop in the tripple clamps. My ball park is 14 - 20mm. Whats a good choice.
Rider 1951, so your running a 13mm drop. My bike was originally lowered when I bought it. (26mm drop in the front). Just put the preload caps on my 02. With 3 lines showing they are almost touching the handle bars. Your drop sounds about right. My dealer said to raise the forks up half the amount of the 26mm.
About 13-16mm sounds about right. I ask my dealership about doing this myself. I was wondering about the dirt that could be clamped under the tripple clamps, but they said just wipe the forks off. They also said do one fork at a time which seems strange to me because you would think this would damage things.
