I lowered my YZF450 by cutting the seat foam. Starting out at 39.2" lowered to 37.25" I got the wifes electric carving knife and cut down the foam then re-stapled the cover back on. Works for me.

That seems alright, but i think you may want to take into account, the hard seat when there is 2.5 more inches of foam on it and how hard the seat is going to feel with less foam. just something to ponder before doing that.
