I am 5' 3" with about a 30" inseam
I bought a 2012 weeStrom after only having tried the previous models.
I quickly bought the KoubaLink lowering links 'V-Strom 2' which lower the rear 1 1/8". The forks are also dropped through the tripleclamps about 3/8".
The bike is now really comfortable to foot around when parking and I'm more confident when stopping, to know I can get good ground contact even with both feet.
I put Soupy's Performance adjustable lowering links on my 2012 and they work well for someone who isn't certain how much lowering they need. These links allow lowering from 0 to 4 inches. They seem to be adequately sturdy - I've used them over some quite rough off-pavement terrain with no problems. Soupy's also sells an adjustable side stand which takes care of the need for a shorter side stand if a bike is significantly lowered.
Earlier models had a maximum of 1-1/8" allowable lowering in the rear before the tire could start tearing up the inner fender under the seat. The longer shock with a little more travel on the Glee probably would be about the same. The front travel seems unchanged. In that case, a little over 3/4" would be the maximum.
The front to rear relationship now seems right on. I would want to keep that relationship and lower both ends the same amount. I have done that and lowered both ends 3/4" or 19mm. I don't ride off pavement or go crazy in the twisties so don't need the extra ground clearance. The lower c/g is nice and my 67 year old joints appreciate the ease of getting a leg over the seat and backing up no longer makes my knees protest.
Lowered 3/4" front and back, like GW. Rides great, and I can get both feet firmly down now, plus paddle the bike to reverse. I have a 30" inseam. Might also want to consider the factory low seat or taking off some seat pan bumpers to tighten up the seat-peg-bar relationship at that size.
