Can anyone help Me? Will I have to modify My kickstand if I lower My 10 an inch. Thanks in advance!

I would think so, I am lowered 2in in the rear and cut at least a 1/2" off I believe and it's still needs more cutting to be stable. I have to be very carefull how I park the bike on the street.

there are adjustable ones out there...but they ain't cheap compared to my used one I bought off ebay and a $30 weld job...If money is no object go that route.

My bike is lowered an inch and I had to shorten the kickstand. I just cut off the base of the kickstand and welded on a new one that I made out of 1/4" plate.

I cut the foot off. Cut an inch off the stand. Smoothed the foot to be welded back on. Painted it black after the metal had cooled. You can't tell unless you look super close. I'm lowered 2 1/2" rear and 1" front. I too have to be careful how/where I park.

kickstand

lowered my bike 1.5 inches back and front and cut my kickstand down 1 inch....everything is perfect, besides a new kickstand here in canada is only $54 bucks...i find the 05 10r leans to much on the stand anyway , so the 1/2 inch diff made it better.
