I slid my forks up in the triple clamp, thus raising the rear. Or you could jack up the preload in back. Not sure if you can use a shim like they have for the new zx's.

Yeah, the '96 has rear ride height adjustment. There is a nut on the top shock mount (actually two). Take off the seat and you will see a rubber boot over the top nut. Remove the boot and loosen the nut about half an inch or so. Then pull the bike over on the side stand to unload the rear suspension. You will now be able to see the bottom nut and be able to get to it. Go easy as raising that nut actually raises the rear about twice as much because of the linkage. I have my rear raised 5 mm and the front lowered 5 mm with no sign of instabilty.
