Yup. We were talking about that semi recently cuz forum member Sono had installed one on his.

Back to the subject of the VTX Shocks and kickstand replacement...

I got the 900 Classic kickstand in the mail today and it measured 8 inches whilst the stock stand measures 9 inches. I was pleasantly surprised to get the spring with the stand as the seller originally told me that it only would come with the bolt. I did like that the spring was black because the stock one is silver. Anyway, $25 shipped was a good deal.

Here's the lean angle before. Sorry the pics aren't exactly taken in the same place or position, but you can see a difference... at least I can see a difference!


Here's the lean angle after.

Thanks GEO. I've been thinking about getting one of those shorter kickstands. Have to check eBay right away...

Edit: Found one and bought it. :)
