Finally got the bike set up to where I can ride it and I had no idea how much fun I would have on this thing! We lowered with the Kouba 3, and the kickstand is too long. Does anyone know if the short kickstand from Suzuki for the DR650 will mount on the DRZ?

You could cut it down, and have a base welded on it, or you could eliminate it, and carry a triangle stand.

Or you can cut some out of the center and weld it back together.
(this is what I did when I went to the dark side :banghead: )

I want to keep the stock stand in case I ever sell it to a tall person someday. We can cut and reweld it at home, that is no problem. Just wondering if anyone has used the shorter stand made for the 650.

DR650 stand won't fit, I already checked into it

Use the OEM kickstand from the '2006 DRZ400SM SuperMoto, it's about 2" shorter, due to the lower ride height 17" wheels. Recently added a 2" KOUBA-LINK and dropped the forks 1.5", recently installed the SM kickstand, it works great. Order the springs (2) that go with it.
