you will need something called "lowering links" for the rear suspension.

and the front forks need to be lowered. I suggest you get this done prefessionally.

try motorcycles unlimited. one of our sponsors. they can do it right.

or if your seat has a lot of foam, shave it down. that's what i did to mine - probably about 2 inches worth.

Go on Ebay, you can probably get the lowering links pretty cheap.

There is also this, a bit more radical but it would eliminate the problem on future bikes.

I found the links on eBay. Do the brand matters?

because once you get better at riding it will not affect the suspension and leaning will be a lot better then if it was lower.
