Aftermarket kickstand?

I sag my suspension as far as possible and sometimes on a slight tilted ground the bike feels like it going to tip over. And its hard to get a grip on the stock stand when i'm on my race boots.

I had lowered my an inch or so and my bike would sit too straight up when parked. I wanted to keep with the styling if the stock kickstand, so I bought one off eBay from a wrecked 1199. I cut it down just a bit and polished it and painted it. Here are the results.

Did you take an inch off from the top and re-drill the hole? I'm interested in shortening mine!

The first pic shows where I made the cuts. I took it out where the lines lined up the best so. It's magnesium so a specialist was needed to do the welding. The second pic shows the stock one and the finished one.

Awesome! Thanks!

Would you mind posting a picture of the bike from the front? I'm curious to see how much the bike leans after shortening. - Plus I love your color scheme

Will there be any lost to the the strength and integrity of the kickstand from the "2nd hand" weld?

The weld is just as strong as factory. Magnesium stock was used so there isn't an issue with metallurgy. If anything, the stand will fail at the bolt first. This is really the only pic I have. It's from the rear. I took it during the test fit. Before the weld was polished up and painted. It's sits at an 10 deg of lean. Stock was at about 13 I think before I put the lowering links on. For comparison, with the links on and the stock stand, she was only leaning at 4 deg. Made me very nervous. Aftermarket kickstand?-imageuploadedbymotorcycle1416423920.290444.jpg

I don't know the weight of either the stock kickstand or this aftermarket one. Hopefully someone else can chime in.
