For a start, you will no longer be able to get your bike up onto the center stand, if you don't believe me, get a 1 inch thick plank of wood, slip it under the bike and see if you can lift the bike onto the center stand. The side stand will also be affected, try the wood under that as well.
The FJR is already quite low under the engine, if you lower it more, you are likely to hit lumps in the road, I am thinking of speed humps which are often placed in parking lots and drive ways. You will also lose ground clearance when cornering.
I am quite short, 5' 8", and I cannot back up the bike while sitting astride it. I stand beside the bike, lean it against my hip, and pull it backwards, much safer.
