Burkhart Adjustable Kickstand

After breaking off the screw on the safety switch and then running a drill bit through my thumb, I got the kickstand on. Looks good and gives me the proper lean after lowering my bike. Also put the Area P rear footpeg eliminator on, but you can't see it from this side.

Russian Ninjette, I like it

You keep mentioning a screw, thought the sw was held on by a bolt?

Here is the picture from the auction. It will adjust all the way from stock down 2.5 or so inches from there. Huge amount of adjustment.

Yes, I called it a screw, but technically it is a philips head bolt that is apparently made of aluminum or pasta. Didn't take any force to twist the head off of it.

Depends how lowered, but if the bike is sitting almost straight up and down while it's on the kickstand, shortening the kickstand allows it to lean over enough to be stable once again when it's on the stand.

I dropped it an inch and it was fine, but I tried parking on a street that had a really big crown, and the bike barely stayed up. I put the new kickstand on just to make sure. Plus, the more I look at it, the cooler it is.
