Boy...now I know why it's referrred to as the Art of Communication... ...look again...it's 10 13/16"...not 3......which means the low fender will most definitely hit the bottom of the lower triple clamp...if there is 10 13/16" of front fork travel.

I don't think there is 10 13/16" of travel...I think the manual's 275 mm spec is incorrect...I would just like to know by how much that spec is off, so that I can know how much I can safely raise the low fender...
