Well I got around to installing my Ohlins rear shock and Mori Link today and deff need to extend the kickstand . I usually use my Pitbull stand here @ home , but I wouldn't trust the kickstand anywhere else . Looks like about an inch needs to be added . I have some 3/4' flat stock carbon steel that I could cut the base of the stand at about a half inch above the baseplate and splice that piece in at the lower end and grind and paint . Maybe a nut welded at the base . What are you guys doing ?
