rp, if you lower your bike like many fellas here do, its the same as extending the kikstand.. the bike will sit more upright.So what have other people done other than sliding a 2x6 under the kickstand when done riding? Or is that my best option ultimately?
Someone makes a longer one. I bought one used off E bay and the seller said it was thunder mfg. Never could find it on line but the fit is great and the angle is much better to lift of the stand. Keep Looking.I'd really like a longer kickstand for my '05 v2k. It's a good workout getting the bike up. I've heard the later years had a longer kickstand? Has anyone put one on an '04 or '05? Are they compatible? And is it much work?
rp,, IF you could get a longer kickstand and then later decide to lower your bike, you will have to put the short stock stand back on or the bike won't lean over at all but stand straight up..not good. ponchoI was really hoping someone just had a longer kickstand. I guess I'll just stick with what I'm doing for now. I'm not a big fan of a block screwed onto it but who knows, I may still do that too. Thanks!
