Lust Racing Versys 650 Lowering Kit 2016-2017 - Should I buy it?

I finally decided to go with the lowering kit, but Motowerk does not deliver to my country so I was checking things on eBay and ran into this:

Lust Racing Kawasaki Versys 650 Lowering Kit 2016-2017 Lower shock mount LE 650E

It looks good and 4cm lower is just what I'm looking for, but I wanted to ask first if anyone knows anything about it? Has anyone used it?

P.S.
This is their official page with the lowering kit (yes, those typos got me worried lol):

There has been some negative post on the Versys 1000 Forum on the Lust Kit for the V-1000's plus it seems they don't respond to e-mails...https://www.versys1000.com

If this post was on the UK Versys site it would be banned. My view is this is a excellent forum, comments like yours Joe helps everyone, in fact when I see one of your posts it gets my attention. In reference to the title, since the X300 was added to this site, I feel the sub forum for the V1000 isn't getting used and in fact is hard to find. I am requesting that admin. duplicates the X300 with the V1000, move the posts from the sub forum to the new one.

I checked out that forum and I only found one guy complaining about it, and that's because he couldn't get the bike on the center stand after installing it.
That makes sense though since he lowered it and by doing that he increased the lever strength/weight required to lift the bike on the stand.
Because when you lower the bike, the center stand touches the ground at an increased angle thereby increasing the short, imaginary end of the center stand lever mechanism.

Other than that, I didn't find any specifically negative posts about it, e.g. "Lust lowering kit broke in half" or something like that which I don't think any sensible moderator would ban because it's in the interest of safety for everyone. Don't you think?

They might have not answered the email for many reasons, none of which personally matter to me since I won't be emailing them. I just need them to post the damn thing to me.
So far I'm not convinced that they're 'fake', for lack of a better term. I do need that lowering kit and, like I mentioned, Motowerk does not deliver to my country so I'm out of luck there.
