Kickstand Help

I had my bike lowered a while back and now need some help. I think the bike was lowered about an inch on the front and the back.

I need someone that can cut and weld by kickstand for me. I know i can buy an adjustable kickstand i just cant afford it.

I live over by Beltway and 45N. Any help would be apprececiated.

make sure its quality work. Your whole bike rests on it. The weld breaks and you will come out to your bike on its side. We all know you have to get off your bike just to push it into a parking spot. Imagine you trying to pick it up....

Look where the kickstand stops when it swings forward. If you cut about 4mm off that stop so the kickstand swings further forward, you get about 2 inches of lean on the bike.

That's why mine leans over so far and its lowered 3/4" in the front, raised 1" in the rear.
