Let all the air out of the tires. That'll give you a couple inches.

I think Progressive Suspension is working on some stuff for our bike. One of the users on here actually got a fitment test done by them for free and they gave him the suspension afterwards and I think he said he had them lower it an inch. Here is the thread

Scootworks does have an adjustable kit for lowering the rear end. They also in the installation instructions talk about how to lower the front end.

You can look into simply having your stock seat altered. I have read some good things about this company. They say they can lower the stock seat 1/2 to 3 inches.

The Scootworks lowering kit adjusts from 1 to 3 inch drop and is easy to install.
