Yeah Gary, you will hear it a little more with the raised fender. The stock front tire really sang on mine and not so much at all after I changed it to a 244 Goldenboy. Also, you said you raised it one inch, I remember reading some posts that mentioned that was too much and if you bottom out the front, it will hit the triple tree. I think you can go 5/8 and maybe 3/4 but not more. Perhaps someone else can chime in with more accurate info?
