Re: Adjusting geometry?
Are you sure it's only lowered in the front? And by an inch?
Is it possible they just moved the clip-ons to be underneath the triple clamps? In stock form, they're on top of the triple clamps, and then the forks will be flush with the top of the clip-on clamp.
I'd expect lowering the front by an inch (25mm), with no other changes would make the bike extremely twitchy. Normally you make changes on the order of 3-5mm if you're looking to make the bike turn in faster, or account for a taller tire.
