The Blackbird lowering brackets already mentioned are NOT a direct fit and will require modification.  I bought them recently but have not gotten around to trying to make them fit yet.

I fitted the Honda Blackbird brackets today https://youtu.be/CQk5b9-0IcY

Not overly happy with them but will give them a test ride before I make final decision.

I'm 194cm and find the bike perfect? Do you feel much of an improvement by doing these few bits to the bike?

I'm a bit frustrated...
As handlebar risers and footpegs lowering systems seems quite comon in the motorcycle world, it seems hard to find some fine and inexpensive one for the CT...
:(

I am 198cm and find CT avsome, comparing to '99 Varadero is much much more comfortable. No risers, or else.

It's good that you are fine with your bike.
For myself, it stats to be unconfortable after 1 hour
(195cm)
