Hiya Tiff, welcome to the site.
I've not seen that model around, normally we do a swap for a set of lowering bones that go under the bike, I don't know if you would need to get shorter shocks on that.
There are some very knowledgeable members here, and I'm sure you will get good advice, maybe some ideas with the postings.
Another thought would be to get the seat lowered as well?

Hiya Badger,
Cheers for your welcome, I beleive the model is a vz400 Desperado in Japan!
I agree shorter shocks may be the way to go. Lowering the seat might be more difficult. Tried uploading a photo with no luck!
