go to schnitz racing.com they have the cheapest lowering links and front endstraps around can send pictures to your e mail on exacty how to remove the stock dog bone and put the new one one and how to strap the front down with the calipers
In my opinion, I would bring the stock spring up by moving the spacers up that are on the coil spring in the rear with a spanner wrench or maybe a screwdriver. Dont forget to adjust the valve after. If this does not work then by a bone. Best place I think to get these would be www.gsxrzone.com
I lowered my R1 a few months back. You will need to have someone help you lift up the back of the bike...I had Marko138 help me. OR you can hang the rear of the bike up in a garage. I only lowered my bike about a 1/2" or so...I wouldn't drop it too much.
