Shorter Side Stand
« on: July 07, 2011, 12:40:02 pm »
Has anyone heard of a solution to come up with a shorter side stand?
There are several lowering kits out there but not much use without the shorter stand.

I don't remember anyone selling them. But I have heard of a few people cutting them down a little.

On drag bikes (typically lowered), most people with just cut the side stand.  Some even go to the extent, to weld the 'foot' back on so it looks factory, just shorter.

I cut and re-welded mine. Added a foot plate while I was at it. It feels like cast but it welds nicely.

Doesn't it feel like the stock stand is slightly long for a stock bike?  Not a lot, but I wonder if a 1/4 inch shorter stand wouldn't be better anyway.
