    Shortening kickstand

    I need to shorten kickstand on my 2011 sixdays 300 due to dropping suspension 50mm, anyone know if the plug on the bottom of stand will go back in once I've cut required amount of stand off?

    Thanks in advance...

    before you cut it warm the ally stand up with oxy and the foot just pops out as the plastic melts and pressure increases , ill measure how deep the hole is on my old one tomo for you

    Cut it off, punch the plastic foot out the bit you cut off, hammer it into the stand.

    Or buy the short stand that KTM make

    when i tried to do this i screwed it right up
    had to buy a new stand anyway
    the foot came out and went back in ok
    but it just was not right after cutting

    may have cut the wrong end off - doh

    Is this a direct replacement stand ( only shorter ) no mods needed? Also, how much shorter is it Kev?

    Cheers
