Correct, forks movement isnt an issue as I only have about 1" or less of travel left in them for hard impact from big wheelies, but that's about it, they stay strapped down. Will be having forks reworked to same effect later once I know exactly how short to make them and eveything still clear

But... It is Impossible to change offset without changing trail..
Luckily... reducing offset increases trail.. = more stable at speed..
