Your bike, your way I recon.
Many people would slide the fork tubes up thru the triple clamps an equal amount that the tip of the rear fender lowered to maintain steering geometry / handling manners.
On many bikes, the tail low or 'racked out' angle of the forks would generally tend to be more stable at higher speeds but less nimble around the parking lot. But with a KLR which is already a little 'light' on its front tire with a rider on board the front wheel can act like a shopping cart caster in various cases.
Mushy tire pressures & squared off / well worn rear tires can exaggerate the higher speed wiggles / wobbles / head shaking. Be careful.
Modify at "YOUR OWN RISK"!
Still riding my 1987 KL650-A1. 85,000+ miles & counting
