In our case the 3 point frames attached to the bottom of the shock are replaced (link below to Lust Racing) and lowering the yokes down the forks, if required.

Remember you will run into issues with the lack of lean on the side stand.

Had a Lust lowering kit fitted to my 2015 from new [ short arse ] makes a big difference when stopping at the lights
etc . and the bike still handles fine. I haven't altered the side stand and never had a problem but might have a
look at the lust side stand adjuster [ didn't know they did one ]
