Default Shorter Kickstand

I'm lowering the front and slamming the rear end. Any recommendations on shorter kickstands?

I have been looking all over ebay for the crossbones one and cant find one. Dont really want to spend over $50 for a kickstand.

'bones or a deluxe would be my thought.....unless you go with Arlen Ness, or someone like that. But, I'm with Rob- over $50, and I'm out!

Sadly I did shell more for the -1" Ness kick stand, I did buy a Fatboy-Lo mounts/floorboards for my bike, and I had -1"Ness kickstand for it that did not fit (FX type).
But it is worth it if you lower the bike, I was getting really nervous with my bike last year.

fyi, the FX style shorter Kick Stand is brand new, installed but never used and will be for sale shortly .

Another trick people use is to 'bend' the stand, I am not an expert on materials/metals and can not advice for or against that.

Th HD stand for the cross bones is $99. I really don't think it is necessary. I ran air rides with a stock stnad for over 2 years without issue. Just do not turn the bars to the left with it slammed or it wills tart to go over!

Drew, is that stand a direct bolt on?

I think so. I bought a whole cross bones floorboards and bracket setup that had the stand already on it, but it should bolt right on.

I don't see a need for it as long as you are careful where you park, Mine is slammed in the rear and 2" shorter tubes in the front and never had an issue.
