Going to lower my new 2015 650 LT when I get it. Will use the Speedy lowering link. Looked at post where people talk about using a 650 Ninja kickstand. When I looked at the parts fiche the part numbers for a 2015 show to be the same kickstand. So what year kickstand is the correct year for lowering a 2015?

I got a 2008 ninja 650 kickstand and it fit just fine on my 2011. Cost me $20 shipped off ebay. It took me 10 minutes to install. I'd rather keep the OEM intact in case I part my bike out and sell the lowering link.

Speaking from a half season of riding with lowering kit, the current OEM kickstand will function just fine with lowering kit and bike will still be very stable with it.

06 -08 ex650 it fit great. $20 on ebay with the spring. You can check p/n on any online parts supply for what years/models use the same one. I wanted to keep my original one if I wanted to return the bike normal.

After considering the EX650 kick stand for my 2016 650 LT, I think I'm just going to go with the shortening routine as shown HERE. If I wanted to revert back to the stock 650LT kickstand, it only costs $52 at Partzilla.com.

I looked at the 2008 and 2016 EX650 kick stands on parts fiches and there appear to be problems with fitting them to a Versys. The first and most significant is that the Versys stand has a sleeve through which the bolt attaches to the frame. The hole at the top of the stand, which has to accommodate the sleeve, looks bigger on the '15/'16 Versys than that on either the 2008 or 2016 EX650 stand.

Even if there were no hole problem and I decided to try fitting an EX650 stand to my Versys, which one would I use?... the 2008 and 2015 have different part #'s. The 2008 EX650 is 34024-0024, where the 2015 is 34024-0103.

I decided to just order the kickstand bolt kit along with the lowering link from Motowerks. When I get to the point where I sell the bike I will just order a used 2015-2017 oem kickstand for $20 bucks on fleabay.

What is the kickstand bolt kit? Didn't see anything like that on the motowerks site.

Well, I purchased the 34024-0103 on eBay for $10.

I'll see if it works on my 2017.

Anyone else try a 34024-0103 from a 650 Ninja on a 2016 or 2017 Versys 650?

Thanks.
