Have any of you lowered the forks in the triple clamp on an S4? If so: 1) How much? 2) How did it effect handling? and 3) Can it be done with the C/Cats clip-on converter (DRA-1)?

i was considering doing this as well, but changed my mind because a few owners (speeddog i think it was?) posted a warning about front wheel clearance. risk of bottomming the wheel out against the radiator or the front cylinder.
you're better off raising the rear instead.

With the front forks on an S4 in the position specified in the OEM service manual, the front fender pushes on the radiator at full bump.

Here's a link to the thread I did in January:

The front fender can be 'lowered' by swapping the plastic mounting clamps side for side ( Tom/Infoage's tip ), that may relieve the interference between the fender and the radiator with forks in stock position, I have not done that.

Thanks for the info. Did anyone try to lower the fender yet?

My stock fender had a little run in with my disc lock (oops!) so while its not really bad, I am thinking about replacing the stock one with a "superbike" fender that I'll guess will run lower. I'll post it in the mods section if I do.
