The trouble with the lower triple clamp modification is that it lengthens wheelbase and moves the front wheel forward and changes the fork angle making the fork into a longer lever compressing the front spring easier usually requiring a stiffer spring.Other than that it's fine they are both poor mens substitutes for leading links but I'm reasonably sure for the money shortening the telelever and moving the ball joint is a better idea and not much money.DB
What did you do for the USA 11bravo ? I was a diesel mechanic in the USN.
Howdy davebig,

I am right now trying to figure out where the spacer goes, I have put a call into Jay for some guidance as I have not worked on that part of the bike before. I took BEFORE measurements, I'll post the before and AFTER measurements after the installing the spacer.

I was an 11B and 11D. 11B straight leg Infantry, 11D Armored Recon.
