I don't know how/where you are going to use your bike. Or how heavy of rider you are. But a lot of people slide the front forks UP thru the clamps an inch or two.
If you do so, I'd recommend to be quite careful off highway and even in-city water dips and drive-ways. If the front tire makes hard contact with the under side of the front fender, you can just imagine how quickly one could crash. Some people never have a problem, others need to add stiffer fork springs to keep off of the front fender.
Modify at "YOUR OWN RISK"!
