Can Do!!!

I just bought a 23 for my hammer, will fit no problem and I'm not raking it. The guard is a different story!

You dont list what bike you ride so the answer is not as easy as yep it will screw you up... I am guessing a JP.

Plenty of people do it and if you understad the the pros and cons you can make an educated decesion.

If you go to a 23 you are raising the front of your bike up. This is going to make the bike heavier in turns and if you know this and you are ok then yes you can do it, if it fits under your fender.

You can bring the rake back to level by pushing it out thus lowering your bike or by shorting the front suspesion. By using a tighter turned spring and heavier fluid you can keep the the bike from bottoming out. This shortens the over all length thus bringing you back closer to the OG rake.
