Raising the Front end

I'd like to raise the bike a 1.5 inches for more off road clearance. I know the rear is an easy fix, but I don't want to change the geometries of the bike too much. So I need something that will allow me to raise the front end up 35-40mm.

Something like this http://xr50.stores.yahoo.net/redbauptrclk1.html

Or is there another way to raise the front end?

Check out what the FlyingFinn did using stock parts from a DR650. He raised the front end and increased the travel. Not a particularly easy fix, but very well done.
