I recently had my bike lowered by using the Kit by Lowering Wing Products using the 1" kit. I'm 5'-6" and it has really made a difference. I was concerned by some of the comments here as far as ground clearance. I have a curb into my driveway and the mufflers don't drag. I hit the corners fairly hard and no dragging, but they are not like the switchback curves on the Dragon, but how often do you ride roads like that. For those undecided because of comments here. You should be OK, at least with the 1" kit. You should order the drive off stand which gives you 1/2" additional clearance, but the drive off feature no longer works, also, if on the new center stand, it takes a little more effort to get on two wheels, because it is shorter. The shim supplied for the kickstand gives plenty of lean, even for not ideal parking areas. I'm glad I made the purchase.
