Being the impatient bloke that I am when I have new stuff to play with,,, I decided to fit the Lowering link.
This is the tie rod you will replace
The 2015 Kawasaki Versys 1000 is stock with a center stand. I put it up on the stand and supported the rear wheel with a piece of wood.
Removed the rear fender / hugger and removed brake side footpeg bracket leaving all brakelines and peg etc in tact. This allowed access to both sides of the top and bottom tie rod bolts.
The adjustable lowering link fit perfectly. The link in its shortest configuration will actually raise the height approx 3/4 inch. I adjusted the link after fitting. Open ended spanner and double jointed arms will help. A bit of a fiddle but do-able.
I dropped approx 2 3/4 inch, I have a 31 1/2 inseam measured from Crotch to Ground. I now flat foot.
Nothing is fouling and operation on my brief test ride revealed no discernible issues.
Handling wise the front/steering feels a little lighter, stability at legal speeds here 100kph or 60mph remains very good. I am yet to drop the forks and give it a shakedown on some of my favorite twisty roads but my initial impressions are very good.
Center stand is now useless of course unless you do as I do, roll the bike up on a piece of wood approx 2 x 1 1/2 and give it a good heave
