I do not know of an offical factory kit but you have a few options

1) Buy a lower seat

2) Get thicker soles on your shoes

3) Replace the shocks, Both Weber and Ohlins can make you a shorter shock for the bike.

I fully agree with this, just if you lower the bike by changing suspension, you will run into trouble with the center and side stands. The most common bike lowering shocks are from Works Performance.

I seem to have shrunk, too! I measured the height of the lower saddle to be about 1" higher than the brochure suggested it was. Anyway, after having a bootmaker put on extra thick soles on my boots, I finally put on a set of the Works Performance shocks to lower the suspension. I managed to gain about 1" of lowering with the shocks at the maximum adjustment and to my surprise, I can still heave the bike onto the center stand, and the side stand is still usable, but not on a hard surface that leans at all toward the right side! The important thing is that I can plant both heels flat on the ground if I want to.
