Just about everybody that I have talked to about Lowering Links agree that if you only lower the rear 1", your stock kick stand will be fine. But lower it more than 1" and you should definitely be swapping out the stock kick stand for an aftermarket " adjustable " kick stand.

I'm 5'2, a girl, and just got my first bike 3 weeks ago...I tippy-toed every day until I got a Roaring Toys kit and lowered my Ninja 300, 1.5" two days ago and I can't tell you how much more comfortable I feel on this bike! No more struggling to shuffle backwards or out of a tight space and much more comfortable when I take off and am sitting at stoplights. I added the risers to the handlebars and it seemed to take a lot of the pressure off of my hands and wrists...Also changed the kickstand out, of course. I personally couldn't be happier and I'm enjoying learning how to ride more and more! It made the bike feel much more like it was made for ME! Just my 2 cents as a newbie. So far, I can't say anything bad about lowering my bike.

Kickstands are very easy to swap.

Yes, but is the Roaring Toyz kick stand adjustable for varying lowering rates

Just wondering if anybody has ever lowered their Ninja's with " Soupy's Threaded Style Lowering Links "

They come in a kit with an adjustable kick stand. Not exactly inexpensive, but everything does look well made from excellent materials.

They are adjustable any where from stock to lowering 3 inches. And anytime you want to make an adjustment, you do not have to pull everything apart.

Decision has been made and links ordered

Decided to use the KISS method " Keep It Simple Stupid " and knowing that I did not want to play around with different lowering numbers and links full of holes, swapping out kick stands, messing with front forks, I also opted for just the 1" lowered rear.

Also, I opted for lowering links from a company in England, which is LUSTRACING. Have read nothing but good reviews about their products which are used world wide.

With the handle bar risers, GEL Seat and 1" lowered rear, I also expect to have "0" negative effects for my style of riding.
