No personal experience with these... just a quick Google search yielded these:

rc51 lowering kit, rc51 lowering, rc51 lowering link, rc51 lowering links, rc51 adjustable

They're a pretty easy install if you have a helper or two to get the weight off the rear suspension during the removal/install.

I lowered my 600 for the wife. Really easy with some jackstands and front/rear stands.

yeah but dropping it cus the grounds not even isnt worth that.2 planted feet are better than 1. i rather have a little less fun than a beat up bike plus safety is whats key put both feet down help fight the innersha of the bike titling to one side or the other in an uprupt stop. plus the one i plan on getting are easy adjusted so if i need it for track day or what every i can put it back to normal.

Soupy's makes adjustable links so you can dial it in to what you need. Just make sure you drop both ends so you don't lose too much handling.
