Custom kick stands fabricate to form around your chambers so your bike doesn't lean over so far
Most of the time when you install a set of chambers or other aftermarket pipes on these bikes, the side stand ends up hitting the pipe. The common fix is
to first cut off the part on the side stand that loops around the stock pipes and toss it, then heat it up the remaining part and bend it out a little to clear the
pipe. Now you're left with a bike that leans over way to far when on the stand. Add this to a ground that angles a little to the left and now your bike has a
fairly dangerous lean angle to it. Sometimes, even after bending the stand out to clear the pipe, it still hits the pipe and you still scrape it on the ground in
This has been battling problem of owners for many years of modifying the side stands on these models when aftermarket pipes are installed. This leaves most people scratching their heads trying to figure out a way to allow the side stand to fit with expansion chambers and not scraping the stand in turns and not having the bike lean so far over when on the stand.
Now you have to ask yourself, does your bike lean over to far while on the side stand? If so, I have a solution, let me fabricate a custom side stand for your bike.
I can custom fabricate a side stand just for your model. This stand will tucks up very nicely around the pipe when you are riding the bike and your bike will have a more stock like lean when on the stand. This is one of the best things you can put on your bike if you have a pair a chambers. I would need you and your bike here for the process. Usually takes 2 - 4 hours to complete. After I have completed the fabrication I will bead blast it clean and it's up to you to apply whatever paint or coating you want on it.

Look closely at the following pictures to get an idea of what your custom side stand would look like.
The above two pictures show the same bike with the custom side stand in the up and down position. When in the up position, you can hardly tell that there's even a side stand tucked up in there.
Below is the completed stand before the bead blasting and paint process.
