    I wouldn't trust it on a normal height bike. The RT kickstand is quite a bit shorter IIRC so your bike would be leaning over pretty far.

    Correct. It would lean way to far if it was not lowered.

    I needed the roaring toyz lowering link to lower the seat height. I bought a new one off of ebay for $86 /w free shipping, but did not want to pay another $88 for their over the top engraved kickstand. Since the kickstand needs to be shortened the same time the lowering link is installed, I called around to make an installation appointment with a motorcycle repair shop who could also proportionally cut the stock stand and reweld the base plate. They charged about $90 for lowering link installation and $20 additional for shortening and painting the stock kickstand. With price not the only concern, to me the roaring toyz kickstand also appears relatively unstable without the base plate. Moreover, the lack of little ball head pin attachment at the bottom makes it less likely to lower the stand without looking down.
