I would say the geometry setting would be secondary to the suspension settings.

Do you have the correct fork springs and oil for your weight and track use, as well as a race-quality rear shock with the proper spring?

If so, setting proper sag front and rear would be the first thing to do. Then ride it. I don't think you will need any significant adjustments to the geometry. Raising the tubes in the clamps will make it steer quicker, which you shouldn't need, as the lightweight little Ninja will turn-in easy enough.

Set-up the angle of the clip-ons so they are comfortable for you, and don't put any strain on your wrist. Make sure they can't hit the tank. Not just so it won't dent the tank, but so you couldn't get your hand injured in the event of an “event”.

What don't you like about the handling now? Does it seem sluggish? Raising the tubes will quicken the steering. Are your front and rear spring rates and ride heights correct?

As Topaz noted - did the rear shock alter the ride height?

I would set the sag, ride it, and see what changes need to be made.
