    So I have the new 09 Electra Glide with the Burley Slam kit and now I need a shorter kick stand or at least one with more lean. Since I lowered the bike if I should park it with the front wheel pointing to the right, the slightest bump will make it fall over. Right now what I am doing is turning the wheel to the left and ensuring the steering lock is on. If anyone knows where or how to cure this let me know.:small3d007:

    There are manufacturers that make a shorter version of the stand for non softail models and also wedges available for the softail bikes on the net that can be used with the original setup to change the angle of the stand. Custom Chrome is one vendor for the wedge.
