Question Kickstand

No this is asking about the kickstand being a pain to put down....

Does anyone else with the akra exhaust and the associated lowers have an issue with the kick stand rubbing/catching on the lowers as you move it in and out?

I'm looking for a different design as I don't think the current rub is fixable. :crying:

Sure a video would be cool. Iím curious if there is a difference.

Iíve looked for a different kickstand but havenít found one yet. Iíd like to see a slim narrow one.

Take a Dremel and trim off about 4mms of plastic.

Fixed.

Ok. Mine also gets in the way
I had to take a piece of rubber
Off a semi tire
And super glue it to the new lower
Fairing to back it away from kickstand
Itís a akrapovic problem
For your 6500 dollars you paid
Bad

There are carbon fiber kickstands available but I've never tried one.... I'm okay with the metal one.
Check "shift tech carbon " online. I've bought a ton of carbon fiber parts from them
