Today I have lowered mine using a replacement spring plate, it was a bit of a pain to do as getting the shock/spring assembly out took longer that we thought and then we had to go and buy a motorcycle spring compressor as my car ones were too big.
After reassembly and only very rough measurement it looks as though my AT is about 15mm lower but sitting on it it feels a bit more than that.
I used this [URL="http://www.metisse.de/lowering-kit-honda-crf-1000-l-africa-twin.html"]http://www.metisse.de/lowering-kit-honda-crf-1000-l-africa-twin.html[/URL
Also installed my Garmin Zumo GPS ans connected it to the switched supply in the front of the fairing, again a bit of a pain as a lot of dis-assembly was required.
