Does anyone know where i can get an aftermarket kickstand that is longer than the OEM. I don't know if its me but the kickstand just seems to short and i hate that. Are there any aftermarket kickstands out there that are longer?
I use a longer Cycle Cat kickstand on my 96 M944. It works great. I had to change the base out to a late model one because it did not fit the old base. It is a direct bolt on for late model bikes. the added side benefit was it gave me more clearance to adjust my rear sets--as the kickstand used to get in the way of my shifter. Motowheels has them for about 10% off in the member section...
I think i am going to go w/ the cycle cat. I guess they are my only choice if i don't want to do the homemade extension, which i don't. I have an '06 S2r 800 so hopefully it will just be a bolt on. Thanks to all for the help on this one
It is just a bolt on. You will need to find out what length you need. Tha DKS71 is one inch longer. To see if this is an acceptable length, place a piece of wood that is one inch thick under your current stand. The other stands wh have are stock length and shorter than stock so they would not be of interest to you. The DKS71 should be perfect though.
