First thing to do is raise it back up to stock height and get the suspension tuned for your weight. After those 2 things then you can start performance upgrades and so on

I've had two of same bike. It's a solid bike. It also happened to be my first in 2000. Was a ZX6R then. Also had the 07' which was ZZR. It's funny how long that model has been around.

Learn to ride better that will bring it the best in your bike. Until then do regular maintenance. And for formed sake why ate the forks that far through the triple clamps

It'll handle better if it's at the correct ride height, better still if its set up for your weight

You don't need to be able to flat foot it at a stop. I'm 5'8", and can't really flat foot my '07 ZX6R. Pretty similar bike. Ideally, you shouldn't have your feet down unless you're completely stopped, and then, you really only need one to keep the bike upright. Spend a lot of time practicing slow speed maneuvers in a parking lot. Below the speed where cyclical precession and the gyroscopic effects of your wheels occur. Keep it under 20 MPH or so. I don't have a -ton of riding experience, but my foot only comes down right as I'm about to stop (1-2 MPH), and is up on the pegs as soon as I start moving. Helps keep your feet from snagging any road hazards as well.

Having the forks that low in the triple compromises your cornering ability in a major fashion, along with a degradation in brake performance, since you'll be loading the front tire harder, and sooner. It's completely changes the geometry of the bike, resulting in an unstable chassis, which is a big safety issue. Keep the shiny side up, and all that.

Dont listen. If you need lower, than lowered is better IMO
