How to lower a 2003 zzr1200?
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 ebay.com 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!
