No air forks. Just a rather cheap but ok plastic cap on a treaded bolt on the top of the fork tube.
I'm going to set them flush with the fork head.
I always set up my Flattrack bikes so the frame is level with the ground and this thing kinda slopes down in front a bit.
Dropping the front end doesn't make the bike handle bad (depending how much you drop it) it just makes it handle "quicker" which can be good in some cases.
Dropping the rear will make the bike handle slower making it not want to make sharp turns without effort, so to the guy that only lowered the back and not the front he may want to drop the front end a bit for better handling in the twisties.
All in all, I like the VN so far. I don't think I've ridin it more the 10 miles cause you guys have me so paraniod that I have been working for three days de-goating......drilling mufflers......installing a voltmeter etc.
