As far as ride quality, most importantly I feel more secure on the bike. Cornering is like its on rails. I can toe drag and feel in complete control. The bike still remains very responsive.

Hope this info helps.
I'm confused why you installed a link to make the bike lower. Is it your height or are track bikes typically lower to the ground?

Sry to bring up old post.

ferntr33 like the polishing and painting. gnarly questions regarding weight savings and strength, im hoping it was sarcasm.

Just curious, did you sag the bike? or got it lowered with certain link?

krissrock if anything that stand is stronger because it doesnt' get as narrow as it did before

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

tkauftheil 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. Attachment 17042
