Hi!

I'm relatively new to riding and I'm a short guy. I had a mechanic friend lower my bike about 1.5 inches, but now my side stand (and obviously center stand) are too long. I'll need to fix that... I think the side stand stock height is 10.5", Would anyone recommend an aftermarket side stand I could install that would be ~8-8.5"?

Thanks!

Max

Its actually more like 1" in the back and lowering suspension in the front to match. Ok, so not something I'd be able to buy as an aftermarket thing and likely only something I'd be able to find as salvage? Do people also cut and re-weld their original one?

@Sidecar Bob Thanks for all that info, I'm going to get a KZ440 stand and see if it could work! I know there's also those foot extender things too, which I might try if I end up going with my stock stand and just chopping it up.
