I switch between a dirt & supermoto setup on my DR650 fairly often & wanted a way to easily adjust the kickstand to match either setup, so I made one. Now that I've put a couple hundred miles on & am confident that it isn't going to fall off, I figured I would throw together a quick write-up on how to do it. Tools & Materials Required: 1) Bandsaw 2) 3/4" Tap Wrench (or a Crescent Wrench) 3) Bench Vise 4) Blue Loctite 5) 3/4"-10 Plug Tap ($11.94 - http://amzn.com/B000FPDG6U) 6) 6" length of 3/4"-10 Zinc-Plated Steel Fully Threaded Stud ($6.08 - http://www.mcmaster.com/#95475A874) 7) 2 Stainless Steel 3/4"-10 Hex Jam Nuts ($0.79 x 2 = $1.58 - http://www.boltdepot.com/Product-Details.aspx?product=4126) I borrowed the bandsaw & 3/4" tap wrench from a friend because those are expensive. You could use a crescent wrench in place of a tap wrench, though it would make it more difficult. I already owned a bench vise & a tube of blue Locktite. If you own or can borrow these, you'll be able to do this project for under $20. The first order of business is to cut out a section of your kickstand. The factory short kickstand is 2" shorter than the stock kickstand. I started with the short kickstand, but you can do this with either. Cut 1" out if you're using the short kickstand. Cut 3" out if you're using the long kickstand. Make sure you locate your cut so you can thread at least 1.5" of the rod on each side. Remember: measure twice, cut once. Once you're done with the cut, it might not hurt to file off any burrs on the remaining pieces of kickstand - probably a better idea than cutting yourself on them later. Clamp down the pieces of kickstand in your bench vise so they won't move. Tap one at a time. Keep in mind that this is a cheapo tap. Use an appropriate lubricant & go slowly. Thread the jam nuts onto the rod, then thread the rod into both halves of the kickstand. Use blue loctite & snug the jam nuts up against each half of the kickstand to make sure it all stays together. Hopefully my first DIY how to writeup proves helpful to some of you DR650 riders out there!
