Yeap that is what I wanted to know, I would be looking to bring the forks up through the triples a bit to help with lowering a bit, obviously can't go to far as it will bugger the geometry.

So yeap need to know how far down the effective flat spot if you like extends down the fork leg from the top and bottom clamp or the parallel or square length machining on the fork tube so the top and bottom triple will bolt back onto nicely before the taper on the leg.
