According to my BEFORE and AFTER measurements the whole front end of the bike has raised ONE inch after installation of Jay's spacer. Heres the spacer in place. It screws to the bottom of the ball joint and then into the top of the bottom triple tree.
This has helped a lot, the next time I have the gas tank off I am going to make a spacer that goes on top of the front shock, with luck that will put the front end back where I am comfortable with how it handles going into a corner with a passenger in the tub. THANKS Jay.
