Default NNew F4i owner - How can I tell if it is lowered?

Just like the title states, I recently bought a 2001 F4i and was told that the bike had been lowered, but how can I tell? I looked at the rear suspension and it "appears" to be stock, but then again I suppose it could just be a non-adjustable (shortened) dogbone or lowering link. Is there a quick/easy way to know for sure?

stock link shouldnt say vortex (obviously) and wont have 3 holes, should just be one at each end. as for the front, you can change the height by raising/lowering the forks in the triple tree. should should only have a few millimeters of fork sticking out past the clipons.
