Yeah..... sell off those good shocks, somebody should be anxious to buy them! Then replace them with some taller Thruxton height shocks with single rate springs. And DON'T neglect those fatory springs up front, those things have NO damping!
They say the most aggressive rear sets readily available for our bikes are those made by Raask, I have some on my bike. (I'll see if I have an image that shows how high they are.) I'm pretty comfortable with them, but I stand a mere 5' 2".
About that leaning..... ever since I learned to practice"Pivot Steering", my lean angles have been reduced considerably and my chicken strips are now wider.... but the resulting footprint and above mentioned technique is getting me around those sweepers more efficiently.
A quick & easy fix might be to simply replace your fat factory footpegs with some smaller footpegs.
