Advice on lowering the front

For anyone who's lowered the front (raising the forks in the triple) for faster turn-in what's your advice on how much to try? Is it a good idea to raise the rear a bit at the same time?

Its all about trial & error and what you feel works for you, that said i'd suggest raising them 3mm as a starting point and log some miles over the same roads or track and assess its performance.

I ended up lowering the front and raising the rear after numerous sessions i mentioned above so it can be a tedious process but in the end hopefully worth it.
