Is this your first bike? You do know that, unlike a car, a bike handles WORSE lowered, right?

actually assuming the front end is at stock height, he'll get better turn in with lowering it or if you want to call it raising the forks a tad bit. now that isnt necessary for street but it'll give him really good results on the track. now idk where his suspension is at for the rear

if you wanna mess with your suspension, take it to a shop like P1 racing & South Central Race Center, or HoP Designs. they can at least set your stock suspension to your weight (best $35 you'll spend on the bike).

+1 this would be really good as well. They can make geometric changes as well and it'll be more obviously but your bike will handle much better.

But if youre looking to just drop the front only because of being able to flat foot it, then different story. You'll have a lot of people tell you not too just because well.. its frown upon haha
dropping the front end a little bit I think will actually help with suspension since you also texted me telling me the rear is dropped a little already.

get your suspension set up properly for your weight--that will make much more of an improvement in the handling characteristics of your bike than lowering it.

PS-- if you do end up lowering it, don't pull into a parking lot head on, always go in at an angle, because you WILL scrape the out of the bottom of your bike

lowering it will NOT make it safer.

He's talking about lowering a bike, not slightly changing ride height on one end.
