Putting in a lowering link is pretty common. There are a couple of places that offer one. I think they can be had in either 1" or 2" drop. You would also raise the fork tubes in the triple clamps to keep the front to rear balanced.

I bought my wife a 09 klr 650, had it lowered front and back 2". She is 5'6" and can touch the ground now but may have to find a different seat. I hear Corbin has one that will sit a person 1 1/2" lower.
Whatever the case she loves the way the bike handles and the power is great. But if your agressive in the corners you may scrap the pegs some.

Hope this helps.
