Thanks for the reply and the pictures. I figure I'll bang out all these mods at once. First, I'm going to buy the flatfoot for lowering kit. Then I'll install the standard lowering kit, shorten the kick stand, install the flatfoot, and drop the forks a bit to maintain the geometry. Then I should be smooth sailing. It appears that you can't do one of these mods alone or it's kind of useless. All need to be done. I'll try lowering the front just a little bit. As long as I can get my feet on the ground I'm happy. I'll keep you posted.
