Hmmm. You mean in this pic? It looks to me like the forks are flush with the triple and the preload adjuster is loosened quite a bit. But I don't see the forks actually sticking out. Am I missing something?
Are you seeing the space between the clip-on clamp and the top triple clamp? That's pretty normal. I would expect to see the gold fork tubes well above the top triple clamp and a standard measurement on the lower fork tube slider if that was the case.
