Have any of you that have lowered your V Rod, shortened, bent or changed your jiffy stand ???

My bike went over on it's side today, after sitting in the dealer's parking lot undisturbed for 45 min. It was a pretty windy day, and I parked it facing down a very slight grade.

The bike has been lowered about 1-1/2" front & rear, and I'm wondering if the jiffy stand needs to be shorter (or bent slightly) to allow for the lowering.

Damage was amazingly light, EXCEPT for a "turn signal sized" dent in the airbox cover.

Any ideas ???

Thanks,

EE

I lowered my rear an inch (kept the front stock, it still looks good), and use the stock kickstand (yes, I too don't like to call it a "jiffy").
I learned from those old geezers with big heavy bikes to always park your bike facing uphill, so you can back out without help from the old lady. :goof:

May be you shouldn't have parked the bike facing downwards on an incline.
