1982 CX500 Custom

Good to order shorter rear shocks? Possibly 305mm? Thoughts? Recs?
Or better to modify and cut/weld the stands longer?

Previous owner modified the frame, currently has the std 320mm (i think) rear shocks - they are a little too long so now the center stand AND kick stand are too short and almost worthless - i'm just waiting for a big wind gust to knock it over.

Had a similar problem with a chain driven bike....a little bit of (welded) flat bar maybe even 5mm to the feet could solve it..you can always place some wood /metal of known thickness under the centre stand to see how much more metal is needed...
Even as a temp measure til you source another...

Are both tyres std size??
Yeah they are the std tires - its from the frame mod the previous owner did - I think i'll go with the weld fix on the stand, if it works out i'll post some pics next week!
