hello yuns, done googles and searches on lowering the front of 05/06 zx's
lowered my bike 1" via lust racing links and lowered the front already myself but just to where the clip ons meet flush with the taper on the tubes, gave me roughly 1/4-3/8" drop
been riding this way for bout 100 miles and yes I can tell a difference coming into my turns and though its not terrible its an adjustment to get used to
question I have is do they make like a tapered sleeve of some sort that clamps on and matches the taper and diameter of the fork tubes so fronts can be lowered without sacrificing clip on clamping surface or the need to relocate the clip ons above the tree?

if not im seriously considering putting the stock links in and readjusting the front back to factory height, and just leaning during the red lights

thanks

how tall are you?

you don't need to flatfoot a bike when both legs are down.

no one should reverse "duck walk" a bike out of a parking spot. That right is reserved for harley riders ;)

Bring it up to stock height.

According to the Service manual the fork tube should be visible about 1.5x the thickness of the top plug (large disk with the big nut).
