do you mean lowering?
check out this thread on the JJ...i think it's pretty much a universal way of lowering the forks...regardless of the make of the bike.

make sure and read the whole thing.

my friend lowered his 74 cb350 and this is how he did it as well.

Are you sure he did it the same way? I am looking at the manual and it only shows one spring per tube. Do you have any pics from when he lowered the front end?

On my cb750 I had to cut and remachine the tubes.

some of those 350/450 ? i think 450 i can't remember , front ends have a shaft that goes down the entire tube , there was a thread on the JJ started about this by another fellow who had one on a T100R ( i also got my T100R with one of these front ends on it ) and of course.. it was closed or deleted can't remember .... ill see if it was just closed and find a link it had pics in it ...




Found it - http://www.jockeyjournal.com/forum/showthread.php?t=57215 has some pics in there .... looks like it would need a diff process to shorten ..

perhaps i'm wrong....seems like he used the same kind of route to shorten them.
not trying to mislead anybody!
