Maybe the make some parts to put between the fork and the holder.

Thanks a lot for the answers, I am saying it really
Nobody i know that drag races, even competitively lowers their front end so aggressively that isn't a dedicated, drag race only machine.

Two of my friends who are active drag racers have done it, but their bikes do not go on the street anymore. When they streeted them they did not raise the forks so much. And regardless, high or low forks, they still used a jam-kit to prevent excessive load transfer to the rear.

See progress pics for evidence. Bikes have not been streeted in a long time (last street ride was around 2016 for blue and white busa - before he removed front brake rotor and raised forks more than 15-20mm)

You're a fool if you think lowering this much is safe for the street. May as-well remove your front brakes and just speed up the process.

He wants it lowered for drag racing, lowering the rear will not help keep the front down for drag racing.

Thanks for comments.
I only want to clarify that I DO NOT thinks this is safer than stock.

My problem is that in drag racing the front comes up and I can not push as hard as I want.

I will try to get some short springs to change the OEM ones so I have not to displace the front forks.

I will give it a try. If I dont like it or I have some toubles, I will go back to stock configuration.

I appreciate your help!
