sorry for resurrecting an old thread, but I'm curious about the lowering the front forks part. Does it still fit if the forks are lowered by 3/4-1inch? cause most of the other modders tend to lower it by that much and well if in 2012 we have to lower it to 1.5 inch then i might just stay away.... thanks

Bottoming out your forks will have nothing to do with lowering your bike, as you're only lowering the chassis further down the forks, travel will remain the same providing you have no clearance issues.
Again, reviving this thread but I am seriously looking into going the whole hog and getting clip ons and adjustable rear sets to suit to get that much closer to the sport ergos as even with the sport bars on my 2013 er6f I don't feel it's enough.
What I needed a definitive answer to is whether lowering the front by a total of 1.5" will make it unsafe in the higher speeds and/or just general manouvering. I've got mine lowered a half inch already with the sport bars and do already notice a quicker turn in than stock height with sport bars.
