alot of times you need to change the length of the kickstand, before you change the height i would bring it to a shop( we do it at Motorcycles Unlimited) and we can do it all in one stop.

If the bike still stands up straight, they didn't cut the stand. I still have not cut mine. Its about a 2 hour job for most

Hey, my bf just bought the tools to raise mine n his up. He's not a professional n I hope it's not hard to do but I'm trusting him to do it. maybe y'all can learn how to do it together. Haha

get one person to tilt the bike on it's kickstand to elevate the backtire. adjust the dogbone on the linkage to get it back to normal. make sure you also raise the forks back up and replace the kickstand if needed. i've raised mine up and down doing this, but it takes two people. If all else fails take it to the shop, Motorcycles Unlimited raised my bike up when i bought it.

If you have a way to suspend the rear and then the front it will be a breeze.

it's been a long time and forgot, but it wasnt too expensive. i also got a new kickstand and my suspension setup when Motorcycles Unlimited raised it back up...

after that i lowered it for drag racing at hurricane alley by tilting it on the kickstand to adjust the dogbones and using straps on the front with the help of one other person.

I just left Stubbs. They said it's about $100-$300 to raise a bike and a lot less to lower it. Still, that's a lot.

If you can have the bike in my garage in La Porte by around 6PM, I can help you. PM me if this works for you. It does not have to be today, but it wont be the w.e. either
