How to raise front end up after a bottom out.

Hello, 2nd post in 11 minutes lol. I light way screwed my self when trying to install the RT lowering blocks for the handle bars while trying to drop the front an inch. The fork tubes is at the absolute bottom (touching the fender [no damage to that thankfully]). How can I raise it back up or do I have to get a new set of forks? I'll post pics tomorrow to show how painfully low it is.

Do you have a center stand? How would you change the front tire? You may need a copilot to keep the bike tilted onto the kickstand while loosening the bolts holding the tubes in place until they slide down enough, when I change tires I put the bike on the center stand and weigh down the rear to keep the front off the ground.

You could also remove the plastich and place a car jack and some jack stands on the under side of the frame orr a good jacking point on the motor.

Thanks guys for all of your help. Had to loosen and pull apart the bottom of the fairings and jack up from the headers.
