Few issues, all in one thread (height, reach issues)

I love my Stryker, but size wise it is a little big for me... so now I want to try to make it as good as possible for me!

So my first issue was the vance and hines, but I bought Cobra swepts to address that!

Now I have a lowering question.... even though I put on a 240 avon... I do not comfortably touch the ground on my bike... I am usually on the front balls of my feet. If I got a lowering kit, I would assume the 1.5-2" difference would get me flat footed and more comfortable? What is the most affordable/easiest install currently?

The handle bars are not horrible, but I do have to lean forward to reach them... and I am almost straight armed... if they were a few inches closer, I could sit back and cruise... any options currently (ape etc)?

Once I have the swepts on, I think my legs will be much more comfortable... but again, my legs are probably a little stretched out more then they should be... is there a way to bring the brake/shifter back a little?

Thanks in advance :)

Just get the PCS lowering links. Use the 1" notch if you ride 2-up, or the 2-1/4" notch for Solo riding.
Well not really a 30 second adjustment, but can be done in 5 minutes or so with a bike jack. You have to loosen a bolt/nut combination and jack bike up till you can get notch in link to switch over while using jack to take load off. Somebody on hear had a Buddy lift bike for him while he did this, but not with my back! LOL
