The stand should fit OK, but any lowering kit will make it much harder to actually get the bike up on its centre stand. Mine has been lowered by 15-20mm at the back and similar dropping the front fork tubes. I could just get it up on the stand with my full weight on the centre stand, but now I'm down to about 10st 5lb, I cannt do it unless I run the front wheel onto a piece of wood. Which is easy enough in the garage but not convenient otherwise.
