raising forks in clamps?

Is there any trick to doing this? I loosened all the pinch bolts, and can't seem to get the forks to want to move very well.
Thanks from a dummy.

Moved mine up about 1/2 inch. When the pinch bolts are loose a little twist with a screwdriver near the bolts will loosten it up. You need to spread the clamp a little.

The other thing that I feel is a must for improved handling is getting a YZ seat/tank combo. I have a Clarke YZ tank and it made a ton of difference. The seat is probably 4" longer than the WR seat and moves you considerably forward on the bike.

Wow, it took a lot more "mechanical advantage" than I would have thought to do this. One side just did not want to slide, even after completely removing all four bolts and spreading the clamps. But, got it done, didn't break anything.
Can't get to trails today, have to work on wife's car, but in the driveway and yard the turn-in feels quicker and lighter. Wanted to go fast and dig my own berm around the outside of the yard, but I don't think that would fly---if you know what I mean.
Can't wait to hit the trails tomorrow!
