I have accutronix forward controls and they relocate the kickstand on my 10 RG and with a 21" lowered in front and legened in back I needed shorter. I cut and welded my stock, I actually have had to do this three times to get right. I have taken about 1.25" out. I was hoping that it would be OK for a 26er, but time will tell.09 (08?) up doesn't work
I was looking at it and I might be able to grind some of the length out of the stop so that when you lean the bike on the stand it leans a little more... Just an idea.
