Raising forks

I want to adjust my forks and raise them. Do I have to take off my front wheel or can I just loosen the clamps and move the forks up. I heard without taking off the front wheel you can pinch the fork seals.

Never heard that before. Just loosen the clamp bolts and adjust them that way. Don't feel comfortable doing it that way? Take the bike off the stand, loosen the bolts, grab the front brake and push down on the forks. Problem solved

How would you pinch your fork seals with the triple clamp? Theyre over a foot away from each other.

I set my fork height with the front wheel off because its easier to measure the height off the clamp & also easier to make sure theyre both the same.
