PINGEL'S CUSTOM KICKSTANDS
PROVIDE A MORE APPOPRIATE LEAN ANGLE
If you have lowered your Harley-Davidson FLH motorcycle for improved ride height, and seating position, it has probably become apparent that the stock kick stand or side stand does not account for this change. You need not modify that stock component, simply replace it with one of Pingels "lowered" kickstands designed for just such situations.Two kickstand models for lowered Harley-Davidson FLH motorcycles are available from Pingel. One model for 1" lowered bikes and one model for 2" lowered bikes.These kickstands are handcrafted from steel in the USA, tig welded and then hand polished to accept smooth show quality chrome plating.Pingel's lowered kick stands mount directly on the stock mounting bracket and utilizes the stock return spring. Both models have a full-surface boot contact area for easy, convenient foot access with both stock and oversized primary covers. Pingel also makes available a stock replacement kick stand which provides a less steep lean angle, which in turn reduces effort when lifting the bike off of the kickstand. Pingel also sells rear suspension lowering kits to keep your motorcycle level after front fork lowering.
