Lowering Forks In Clamp Reduce Stability at speed?

I just don't want to be tank slappin in fourth gear.

If the bike is nto tank slapping now, it wont after you adjust the forks down.

I will drop them 10mm to start with. I will drop them more if that does not cause any problems.

I wouldn't raise them 10mm and then go race. 10mm will make a pretty dramatic
difference in how the bike handles. You don't need any surprises on race day.
I usually adjust mine in 2mm increments.
BTW, I did exactly what I'm advising you not to do. The bike was a 92 KTM 250 EXC.
I raised the forks 10mm and went racing. The bike changed from a bike that
wouldn't turn to a bike that was more nervous than a long tailed cat in a room
full of rocking chairs. As always, YMMV.

Thanks for the advice. I will increment 2-3mm at a time
