Where does everybody here set their fork height in the triple clamps? I've always set the top of the tube flush with the top triple clamp, but I'm thinking about raising it 1/4" or so to make it turn a little quicker. Any suggestions?

I moved my forks 1/4" and it did help in the cornering BUT, I received some head shake and wash out so be careful.

Thanks for the advice. I went ahead and moved them about 3/8". I didn't feel any headshake, but it did make me aware that I need to change the front tire. It handles a little quicker and feels better in turns. It takes some getting used to so if anyone tries it don't do like I did and change it the night before race day.:)
