Not sure which forum to use so here it is. I just installed 11" shocks and lowered the front end of my 79 cx500 custom. As a person with a 29" inseam I really like the lowered version but as you know the kickstand is now too long. I imagine I have to pull off the kickstand and I guess have it cut down but really don't know what is best so I am asking all you fellow cx and gl folks for advise. How do I solve the too long kickstand issue?

Thanks, Rick in Cleveland, ohio

If you can weld, or know someone who can, then I'd cut off about 1" to start, and see how much of a difference it makes, then weld it together, and keep going until it's the right length, I haven't done it, so I don't know how much you have to take off....
