08 forks in an 07 track bike....setup Q

I have an07 r6 track bike, with 2 sets of forks 07's and 08's I know the 08 ones are 10mm longer but do any of you track/race guys use any of that extra 10mm or do you just put them up in the triples 10mm essentially leaving them stock. Havent had a chance to ride the bike yet as I just bought it (coming from an 05 track bike) what would you recoommend? I have and ohlins rear shock (not the ttx) I don't ride street just the the track FYI. Thanks

Re: 08 forks in an 07 track bike....setup Q

The quick answer is - Yes, people with the 08+ forks run them flush with the triple (plus or minus a few mm's).
Some people are even using fork extenders depending on their setup and tires and all.
