What should I do to make it "proper"? I rode this bike before messing with the suspension. I have ridden friends bikes set up for MX, Hare Scramble, Enduro, etc. I still like being able to touch the ground. If you have any suggestion for me to make it better, let me know.


Because you have the desire to touch the ground fulfilled, changing anything will most likely result in your not liking the bike. It's not that your setup is wrong more then it might not be getting optimal handling because of the lowering. If you can touch and your happy, there isn't really any other better solution.

Ultimately lowering the suspension internally would be the ideal ticket but that comes at a cost.

Understood.

It's also true that lowering the rear without a matching lowering of the front alters the steering head angle by making it shallower, which on a '10 or later may not be too bad a thing for off-road use, but you wouldn't want to do that on an MX bike or on an '09 or earlier model.  Shallower head angles contribute to understeer ("pushing the front"), and that tendency is bad enough as it is. 

 

The fork simply can't be lowered 2" safely without internal modification (to say nothing of moving the handlebars).

Before and after. No "stink-bug", but the front end isn't too high either.

Gotta grab a pic, but I have a Yamaha yz400f. It came with acerbis hand guards, white brothers pipe, and a moose racing skid plate. So far I've added a promoto billet kickstand, flatland racing rad guards, moose racing seal savers, led headlight, and a bib mousse in the rear. I have a 12 tooth front sprocket I may install also. Soon to be getting a yz450 carb, and possibly a different pipe. (The pipe has all the discs removed and is obnoxiously loud. It sounds awsome but I don't want to be that guy)
