Lowered the arse end by 30mm and the front forks 15mm, put it on the side stand and alles was good, no problems of being too erect or straight, only have to use a tad more muscle when using centre stand............good for a bit of sport  :001:

That's surprising. I lowered mine by about the same as you did and had to get a different side stand.

Re side stand if you loosen the bottom bolt and pack with a couple of washers it pushes the stand out enough. (someone else's tip from this forum). I've never had a problem.

I tried the washer idea, didn't really change enough. I purchased the bracket for the "low" version and that is the ticket. Good angle, sturdy and looks tidy.

Chico,

Can you share the part numbers for the lower side stand parts and maybe a picture?

Thanks
ZShyster
