Longer links on the back and lower front forks in the clamp.
Easy job and handling isn't really affected as long as back and front are lowered accordingly.
Ground clearance is the only issue.

You will have a very difficult time getting it low enough to fit you adequately. The seat height is nearly 32 inches stock, so compare that with your inseam and see how much you would need to adjust. It is doubtful you will get the bike that low without ground clearance and fender clearance issues, safety aside.

But, to answer your question:

The front fork tubes can be slid up the triple clamps over an inch, sometimes as much as 2 inches. Your fender may need to be removed however.

The rear you will have to buy/fabricate a lowering link set. There are several styles available on for your bike.

I would also recommend taking your seat to an upholsterer and having some of the foam removed to provide more clearance for you.

Be advised that all modifications to the ride height of your bike adversely effects your ride quality and control. The amount that you need to lower your bike could and likely will make it much more difficult to maneuver due to the skewed suspension geometry.
Please be careful!

N is inversely proportional to the square root of m, when m is 4, n is 11 what is n when m is 34 what is m when n is 29?

I'm not sure this is correct, but it may give you some hints.

n = a/sqrt(m) and given the point (4,11)

Substituting the point (4,11), I get a = 22
So n = 22/sqrt(m)
Good luck,

Hi, Ian change the word "plug" to "flower" and you will be right as rain lol, seriously the water is not the problem it's merely a messenger saying you have an issue with your spark plug, possibly cracked, or the spark plug cable/cap is faulty/leaking voltage for this situation I would call my local dealer or reputable shop's service/parts department and inquire about any possible quick fix, answers, or parts inquiry.

Hi anonymous, pull back the padding at the rear of the seat and you will see a screw that goes through a chrome bracket and screws into the rear fender, remove said screw, lift up the back of the seat and pull backwards so the tongue at the front of seat can clear the female receiver. Good luck

I have a 2003 ZZR1200 that keeps fouling a #2 plug. Any suggestions?

If the engine is very worn, try using a softer plug as that will help to burn off the oil deposits or if the plug is not pink but grey, make the misture skightly richer so it will burn cooler.
Hope this helps.

PTC relay on compressor

Try to find the "secret" wiring diagram.  Almost all refrigerators have a hidden paper wiring diagram.  It is usually tucked into a slot under the refrig, behind the front grill, or otherwise on the inside of the lower rear cardboard fan cover, or sometimes inside the back area near the fan.  While you're in there, it's a good practice to clean the coils.
