Good motorcycle shop in the Santa Clarita/Antelope Valley area to shorten kickstand?

Hi,

I recently installed a Kouba link to lower my TR650 and now the bike sits a bit more upright (less lean) with the kickstand down. As such, I'm looking for a reputable motorcycle shop in the Santa Clarita/Anetlope Valley area to shorten my kickstand to get the original lean back.

Can anyone recommend a good shop in the area to do this work? Thanks in advance.

You mean you need a hack saw?

If you can't find a hacksaw, get taller tires

Manracks is somewhere in California, and can convert your side stand to make it adjustable for about $60. jungleplant is a vendor here, and can give you more info:

I was going to do this with my wife's DR350, but I think I'm just going to cut it shorter with a hack saw, and borrow my friend's welder to glue it back together. It doesn't need to be pretty.
