    Default Kick stand DRZ400sm

    Just checking to see if anyone has tried different kinds of kick stands on a drz400sm, like the ones that can bolt arount the swing arm ( used on dirtbikes ) Im only checking cuz I have the yosh dual exhaust and I keep scraping the kick stand when going through turns on the left . Thanks for your help

    Are you using the kickstand that comes with that dual exhaust?

    I drag my kickstand on the goldwing without an issue.

    Send me a pic... a simple tab welded onto the stand should fix the concern of yu catching something in the road with the food of the stand.

    I have the same pipe and kickstand en route to me as I type this... now do you like it sound and performance wise?

    im not sure how stable they are but what about using those axle jack stand things they use to raise the rear wheel using the side stand. You could make a collapsible one that hooks into the rear axle. Just need a tool buddy or something under the tail to hold it while you ride

    Either file the foot of the stand down or remove stand, weld 1/8" flat stock from foot to stand approx 2" long piece should do just fne.

    The welding option... provide a ramp so foot can not catch or grab road imperfections.

    File foot option...faster method... you are only trying to remove enough material so the foot no longer drags when leaning the bike. Do your best to match angle of grind to angle of road during hard leaning. I can explain better via voice... pm me for number.

    I now have the same setup on my drz.

    The gap between the exhaust and kickstand in the above pic is wayyyyyyyy tighter than mine. Looks like I will be breaking out the torch and rebending the kickstand.
