    i have seen several pics of 07s with the forks slid up and wondering how it is done. how are they getting a good clamp on the tapered part of the tubes?

    also, has anyone tried the trac dynamics slammerz kit for internal lowering?

    Some get the forks milled or some used forks from earlier model 1k's and then internally lower, all depends on how low you tryn to get.

    I wouldn't try to clamp them on the small portion, those who do shim the forks to make up the difference.
