who wants adjustable sidestands for their bike???

i've noticed that quite a few of you have several sets of wheels for your BMW GSs and KTM LC-4 and LC-8 Adventures....

when going from BWOE the oem 21/18 KTM to the popular 19/17 combo reduces the height of your mc by 3/4'' the 17/17 SM conversion drops your bike by at least 1''+

i have a simple strong way of adjusting the sidestand over a 1.5''range,,,,

would you like a bigger footprint while you are at it,,,?????

should be able to pull this off for $60+/-

awaiting your feedback,,,

woody

PS,,,PLEASE pass the word,,,thanks

OBTW: i have been using this idea or variations of it over the past 30 years,,,i want to acknowledge HP2 a fellow ADVrider for his version of this solution. He's in Germany and chimes in both here and on the German GS Forum.

adjustable kickstand

How about one for a Suzuki DRZ400SM that's been lowered 2.5 inches?

I think it's a great idea as just changing tires can change your ride height by a half inch.

Good luck!

When I lowered my wife's R1150R, I had to get the sidestand cut, rewelded, and painted to make it work.

A simpler solution would have been nice.

I don't need the product right now, but got pics?

What a great idea! I was planning to get a set of supermoto wheels for my KTM 950 Adventure, and was figuring I would need two kickstands. It could use a bigger foot too. I tried the Touratech foot on it but it kept coming loose.

I will get that kickstand down to you this winter when I can part with it for a while, and send some measurements.

Hey Woody,

You still doing this adjustable sidestand deal? I've got an HP2 Enduro sidestand that you lengthened a couple years ago by 2". Worked great, but I replaced the OEM sidestand block with your steel one, and now it's too long. Here are some pics:



I'd like it shortened by 1" and then a +/- 1" adjustment on top of that since I run 21/18 and 19/17 wheels. Can you do that on this stand? My guess is it's got some steel rod already welded inside it from the last work....

Thanks.
