So this idea of kickingthe front forks out 8" sound great. If youve ever seen stretched forks with stock rake, you know what im talkin about. Really cool. But in doing this, the kickstand should be too short to work. The kickstand seems stuck on, meaning the little flathead setscrews are seized in place and wont come off. Is it possible to slide an extension on the kickstand, or can I run the stock kickstand and just deal with an insane stance with a short kickstand?:confused:

If the kickstand is still stock length it will work fine... you'll have an awesome gangsta lean when parked, but will work fine.

My dad's ironhead is 8 over... it's on the right:
