NINJA 500 (1987-1993 / Spring On Outside) Kickstand & Lowering Link Combo Kit
Our NINJA 500 (1987-1993) Adjustable Kickstand Side Stand (Spring On Outside) BILLET lowering kickstands use stainless steel hardware and are CNC machined from SOLID ALUMINUM. They are capable of stock length to 3 inches shorter and are the strongest, best looking on the market today! There are a number of adjustments to choose from, simply loosen the lock screws and set it to your desired ride height. Dont use a cheap kickstand and take the chance of your bike laying on its side!
We've designed the foot area of the kickstand with a radius that allows the user to fine-tune their desired lean angle. This product is a great companion for our lowering kits.
Keep in mind if your motorcycle is lowered, the frame will be closer to the ground. The kickstand is mounted to the frame and will need to be shortened to retain the lean angle the bike needs to keep from tipping over.
This is a direct bolt-on item. Simply remove your stock kickstand, replace with ours, adjust and ride! Uses the stock kickstand spring and safety switch.
Soupy's 1st Generation Kawasaki Ninja 500 Lowering Link
Lower the tail of your 1st Generation Kawasaki Ninja 500 quickly and easily!
These turnbuckle style lowering links for the 1987-1993 Ninja 500 are infinitely adjustable between stock height and lowered 4 inches. No need to remove bolts and disassemble the rear suspension everytime you raise or lower your bike! Just loosen the nuts and rotate the center portion of each link the same amount. You do not have to remove bolts and find a way to hold the bike up while you are doing it! The center hex body is gold zinc plated steel or stainless steel, NOT aluminum. The ends of the 1st generation lowering links have a 1/2" thread and are black oxided steel on one end and zinc coated with a teflon bearing on the other, NOT aluminum. The ends of the 2nd generation lowering links are black oxided steel both ends. Aluminum threads DO NOT last and are dangerous! We manufacture, assemble, market and sell these links...thats why we offer them at such a great price!
Our links are the same thickness as the stock links. That means your stock bolts and nuts are retained and the locking element of the nuts will still be engaged. Some of our competition use a thicker than stock link and the locking element is no longer engaged. DANGEROUS!!
