I'm looking into this mod for my FZ6R, just wondering if you have any issues with bumps in the road, does it make the front fender hit at all?

I ended up doing this modification to my FZ6R and really wish I hadn't, to be honest.
Here's a list of my grievances:
1) The handling was completely different.
2) The levers ran into the windshield at full turn.
3) The levers had to be angled back to avoid running into the front fairing/nose piece, but still ran into the windshield after they were adjusted (not the most natural/comfortable position).
4) With relocating the master cylinder, it seemed to put a lot of strain on the brake line...I never had any issues with it, but it definitely concerned me.
5) I did this mod to try and make the most of the bike since I was mainly doing track days on it. The next issue I ran into was dragging footpegs...the only fix for that was adjustable rearsets.
BUT, to answer your question, I never had any issues with the fender hitting anything, although I'm a light rider (145lbs) and avoided any bumps/potholes like the plague.
