Yeah, when the front wheel is off the ground that is full extension.
Careful with the routing so things don't rub under the faring when turning full left to right. (bright light and listen)

Subject: [DucatiST] Heli Bar Install on an '04 ST3 - Is the brake line long enough?
I have been enjoying my lurking for the last few months and now find myself needing some feedback. I installed the Helibar lugs on the ST3 today and found that at thier highest position, the front brake line appears to be too taught. I could lower the lugs and still be happy with the placement if I had some way of knowing what the fork's true full extension looked like.
Can I use the full extension of the fork that I get when the front wheel is off the ground as the travel limit or should I add a few fractions of an inch to cover greater extension when the fork is in action? I have room to drop the Helis down about 3/8" and feel that there is sufficent brake line slack with weight off the fork. But, I don't know if this is the true limit or if the fork could extend even further?
Thanks in advance for your input.
