Lowering handlebars via forks.

Has anyone lowered their bars by clamping them further down the forks, if so how much in mm and what difference to steering and the feel of the bike.

The only way you are going to lower the bars with that method would be to take off the fairings and mount the clip ons under the top triple like true sport bikes do. Other than there are aftermarket clip ons that just go a bit lower. I got a set of vortex clipons. They are lower but the fairing gets in the way so much that you have to have your brake lever angle way to far up and you will get rubbing from the throttle cables when at full lock to both the left and right.

I ended up getting a Venhill Duel throttle cable kit, CBR1000RR throttle tube housing and switch gear. This allowed me to face the throttle cables up and go over the brake master. I now don't have any fitment issues but the bars really aren't much lower from stock. This was a lot DIY but if you're up to it you can do something similar.
