The ride height is determined by a couple of things, the suspension and the seat. If you can, try to find a different seat because lowering the bike effects the handling characteristics so much. Anytime you lower a bike, you reduce the "lean angle" which hampers you when you make turns. If you can't find a lower saddle, you can lower the bike. It depends on what year and model bike it you have. You didn't say. There are companies that make lowering kits for most bikes. Progressive is one of the more popular companies.
You may be able to modify your seat by removing some of the padding, and recovering it. Aftermarket seats may also be available.
Very slight adjustments in height can often be achieved by moving the fork tubes in the triple clamp. Note that this will affect the handling characteristics of the bike. This modification is not recommended for safety reasons.
Another alternative is to wear boots with an extra thick sole.
In any of these cases, the difference in height is going to be relatively small -- a couple inches at most. It is important that your bike allows you to feel comfortable, confident, and that you can control it fully at all times. Although it's not a very satisfying solution, the best solution might be to find a bike with a lower standover height.
to check the float height, invert the carb body holding the float arm pin so the pin will not slip off. With the float arm kept free, measure the height it should be 22.4 + or - 1.0mm
This is what the shop manual says.
basically what that means turn the float bowl upside down and keep the bottom of the float even with the edge of the bowl.
