Strongly recomend you get your bike lowered enough so you can flat-foot it; both feet.
1. Gel Seat (gives about 1 5/8" lower seat height)
2. Speedy lowering kit. (gives about 1 5/8" lower seat)
3. HyperPro progressive, lowering springs for both front forks and OEM shock (gives about 30mm (1 1/4") lower seat height)
4. Raise the front forks 20mm.
I have done all these things and they work great. With the progressive springs, the V rides much better than with OEM springs. Overall, you'll lower the seat height over 4 inches, which will allow you to have both feet fairly flat on the ground. And, you'll feel much more confident with low-speed maneuvers.
