When lowering bikes, we usually lessen or cut the shock absorbers (front and back).
Accessory places have lowering blocks, they are just a small metal accessory that move the bottom of the rear shocks to the rear and down, I think you get 1.5 inches from them. Then you need to cut or get shorter springs in the front, either will probably make the ride stiffer in the front.

Most likely the breather tube has filled your air box with oil. If it has , you may need to replace your air filter. If you look under the motor you will see tubes in front of your rear wheel. The tubes that are capped are called pollution tubes. these need to be emptied periodically. Place a pan under the tube and pull the plug and all the nasty junk will pour out. If there is a lot of oil this may be the source. Replace the plug. Wash your bike with an engine degreaser, then take it for a short drive. Be sure you rev the motor up with some hard acceleration. Then look it over carefully to see the location of the leak. If the bike was run with too much oil the crankcase breather was probably not breathing correctly and blew out a piece of a cover gasket high on the motor. If the gasket had blown out below the oil level you would have a puddle under your bike. If a seal was pushed out you may be able to press it back in. If damaged , replacing the seal may be the only option.

it takes between 3-4 quarts but that model has a dip stick on the oil cap so use it to check as you fill,also make sure to only use motorcycle oil,car oils break down to fast and were not designed for motorcycle use, honda makes a very good oil, i would use a 10w-40 for cold weather and 20w-50 for hot weather,also i would suggest a synthetic oil, it will shift easier and make those movable parts last allot longer.
