Question jack up kits

hi people now the winter is here in England decided to do a few bits to the bike, So just the one question at the moment is it worth getting a jack up kit and if so how much of a difference do they make
Cheers

I think people put jackup kit for better handling or sometimes just for aesthetic reasons...high tail gives aggressive stance superbikes have.

Lust Racing offers jackup kits.

also @1:55 in this video, they put some kind of shim to raise the rear for better handling

Why not just lower the forks instead for free? Same effect right? End up with a little less max lean angle but I'm not good enough to be dragging pegs so...
I've considered it a few times. My bike is rock solid stable but takes a lil effort to turn in. Trade a lil of one for the other.
