Is there a way to easily raise the fork tubes on a stock 350 with all the shit attached (gaitors, headlamp ears ) or is it not possible? I loosened all the pinch bolts etc. but am i forgetting something?

I just want to lower the front end an inch.

What year is your 350? The forks on early ones are shrouded in the top triple tree. Some of the later forks have an external spring that fits under the triple tree (hard to lower, but not impossible). If you have a later model, just loosen the pinch bolts and get a buddy to help you mash 'em down. There are rubber seals at the top of the headlight ears that you might be hanging up on...

Honda go sideways!

yup, shrouded. I'll just try harder. I think it's a 72. I'll post a photo.
