Smile Lowering the Versys

I would like to lower my VersysX 300. I would like to hear from people who have done so as to whether or not there is sufficient slack in the cables to allow a spacer be installed which would raise the handlebars. How big a spacer would I need if I used a 1.6 inch lowering kit? Any info from those of you who have lowered your bike would be appreciated.
Thanks in advance.

I lowered mine but did not raise the handle bars but did raise the forks in the triple tree.
After 3,000 hard miles, 1/2 on gravel, the socks broke in, wear down, or I got use to it and raised the back end to normal and put back on the original links/dog-bones. I did leave the forks up in triple tree which increase turn in speed in curves. I still have the adjustable kickstand installed.

I lowered mine an inch with soupys adjustable lowering links, and raised the forks an inch and raised the bars 3/4 inch with bar risers. The cables did fine with those changes. Handling is good too.
