Default Lowering 2013 BW and moving floorboards ?

Just bought a Boardwalk and I need to get it dialed in to fit my wife. Gonna get some 1.5 inch lowering links and thinking about raising the front forks about an inch in the triple tree. Also need to move the floorboards rearward. Anybody done this on a BW ? I noticed most other Vics have adjustment holes on the floorboards but not the BW , so I guess I may have to fabricate something.

If the arrangement is the same as a XR, the boards don't move, but the foot controls do. Make certain there are no wires above the rear tire. If there are, move them to the side. Re-adjust the belt looser. Avoid roads with curves.

It's very different from the X bikes. I would imagine it would have the most in common with how the kingpin floorboards were set up
