WTB: Ohlins extended kickstand

Im looking for the extended kickstand ohlins offered for their forks. My bike is leaning TOO much. Sorry not interested in the Scott's adjustable stand.

Any leads will be appreciated

Chop. Cut. Rebuild.

LDH from what I was told there was a kickstand offered when buying ohlins forks because of the extra length and increased lean angle.

Well I am the largest Ohlins dealer in the world, had a set of those forks on my RC51 and I still never heard of a lengthened kickstand option from Ohlins...

Additionally the forks did not make the bike taller as they were designed to be bolt on replacements and everyone lowers the front end on these bikes anyway. The only reason the bike leans more is when people install the aftermarket suspension linkage which raises the rear of the bike about 14mm at the axle which has nothing to do with any of the products Ohlins provided.

Keep an eye on that Sato unit too. They were prone to bending.

I'm in the same boat, because I just added a Mori link. For now, I have to choose my parking spaces carefully.
