Finishing up a seal replacement job on the forks for a recently acquired K1150LT. Have not put many miles on this bike for a number of reasons, mostly that I'm a bit too short legged to be comfy on it. I noticed that a few other folks have adjusted forks to have a little more tube showing up on the triple tree. How much can I lower the forks without creating a problem with handling? I would like to get just a bit closer to flat footing- but don't want any surprises at highway speeds.. any suggestions?

BTW.. thanks to those that suggested gaiters... not crazy about the look, but I think they will not be too objectionable with all the tupperware around them and hope the added protection will make the next service a few years down the road
