Im looking for more ground clearance on my 2012 Vee.
Ive seen rear suspension lifting kits but what about the front end.
I thought there mite be a fork extention kit that just screws into the top of the forks.
There seams to be plenty of slack in the cables and hoses to work.
I may need to extend the side stand and centre stand but that should be the only mods that it will need I think.
Has anybody done this to a Vee??

First thing to figure out, especially up front, do you have the right springs in the forks for your weight?

Replacing my stock springs with 1.0 kg/mm raised the front end effectively as there was a bunch less sag. Dog bones can be added to even things out again. I don't ride offroad or try to climb over logs and stuff, but I've ridden off higher concrete curbs and such with no issues so far.
