Michael, it is fairly easy to do:
get the bike on centre stand to remove weigh from the front forks.
Unscrew the 2 set of triple clamps that hold the front forks (do this one side at a time if you do not have centre stand or if your bike weigh on the front because if not the whole thing will slide forward and turn to disaster!)
Slide then the fork through the 2 sets of clamps, one at a time, upward, by as much as you want. Note that I did this in both my F650GS and my Versys. On the Versys the forks are inverted but the principle is the same.
Really that's all. Tighten the forks. Look in your workshop manual to ensure the right torque. (Always put the right torque this is important!)
You should be able to lower by 2 or almost 3 inches. Remember than when you do this, the side stand will have to be adjusted (cut) or the bike will sit to much upward and risk to fall. ALso if you lower the front but do not fit a lowering link in the rear shock, it will affect the handling of the bike.
Actually check it out here good photos. This apply to the versys but take you step by step: http://motowerk.com/Documents/Web%20...Suspension.pdf
