My buddy simply lowered the forks about 1.5" in the triple-clamp and moved the rear shock to the lower position for his wife and her DR650. It seems to be working fine. Much less fuss for sure.

I'd suggest removing the Booster Plug. I did on my bikes (hexheads) and the AF-Xied works great. With the BP, I would think you'd be trying to double fool the ECU.
