Hey there. I've searched and found a few threads and articles about lowering the forks on triumphs but they all seem to be for external sprung forks and a spot to add spacers. My forks have the internal spring and I cant seem to find an explanation or pics of how to lower them. I've read that a few folks have cut and re-threaded the tubes but they say the tire may hit the lower tree when the forks eat up their travel. So whats route is the best? Can I add a spacers to this style fork, and if not, can a travel bumpstop be added somehow if I cut the tubes?
thanks, Mike
Pics would help.

I did this on a 71 fork
You put in a spacer and cut spring (maybe)
Im pretty sure there was a video or tech thing from lowbrow customs that I watched before I did it

Yeah lowbrow has a writeup in their tech section but i dont think its for my fork and there are no pics anymore so it doesnt make anything very clear. I wish they would put the pics back up so you can see what they’re referring to. I’d like to lower it 2-1/2”-3” to match the drop in the rear with my hardtail.
