Default How much can you lower a f4i on the front?

So I was experimenting on my f4i and lowering the front a bit. I have a dog bone on the rear which lowers the garbage out of the back (5'' or so on the back). I lowered the front of the bike and took the front fender off so that it would have enough room for the shocks to move without hitting the nose fairing. I succeeded in lowering it about 5 to 6'' in the front. The PROBLEM that I ran into is that when you lower an f4i that much in the front it, when you hit bumps or even have to brake hard in the front, it hits the shock stoppers. I really want this bike slammed but I don't know how to get around this. I sounds very violent with you hit bumps (even small bumps)..it only has about 1" of travel on the front. How can I change this to allow my bike to be slammed but still ride it on the road and be fine? Inverted fork swap from a 600rr? Anyone else have this problem.
