Summarized specifications (in PDF)

Adjustment of the back suspension:

Adjustment of the preload by screws on the body of the shock absorber.

Adjustment in compression ( 24 positions) on the reservoir of liquid to the left of the motorcycle under the reservoir essence:
The position 1 ( most amortization) is obtained by turning to the maxi left position , the reticule adjusting screw.
The position 24 ( least amortization) is obtained by turning to the maxi right position , the reticule adjusting screw.
Preadjustment OEM @ 6.

Adjustment in bounce ( 16 positions) at the bottom of the shock absorber.
The position 1 ( most amortization) is obtained by turningto the maxi left position , the reticule adjusting screw.
The position 6 ( least amortization) is obtained by turning to the maxi right position , the reticule adjusting screw.
Preadjustment OEM @ 8.

Triumph specifications:
Standard solo - compression 6 bounce 8
Solo sweet - compression 8 bounce 10
Solo lasts - compression 4 bounce 6
pillion - compression 6 bounce 4
Pillion and luggage - compression 6 bounce 4

Lower the bike of 2":

Lower the front:
Lower the height of bellows of fork of the wished value (1" mm for example)
Raise the T frame regarding to tubes:
Remove streamlining
On the right side you remove the 4 bolts , you put some oil or some penetrating oil between T frames and tubes, you pump, you tighten when you are in abutment on the bellows.
Idem to the left
Wipe tubes, maybe better for fork joints...
See here

Lower the back (method of the eccentric):
You do as to tighten the chain, you loosen the 2 ChC
You remove the rear bolt of the plastic chain crankcase.
You scrap the spur of the bracket of rear brake (7mm about) which interfere with the swingarm
You turn the eccentric of 1/2 rev by the front or by the back (in that case it is necessary to remove the chain of the rear sprocket).
You tighten the assembly
You put a 1" high washer between the crankcase of chain and the swingarm, after having increase the hole of the crankcase.
Plane the saddle of 20 mm
It is necessary to adjust the handlebars in slope
See here

Advantages:
I have feet almost down flat (I'm 1m71)
The centre of gravity is lower, it is better for the maneuverability.
The lower front increases the maneuverability at low speed, but decreases the stability in a straight line in theory (play angle)
Inconveniences:
Less stability in a straight line in theory
Road clearance:be careful when you jump the pavements, exhaust rubs (especially with these too soft suspensions).
Be careful when you lean !
Kickstanded:Ok because bike is too leaned before.
