I called a bunch of welding/metal work shops in my area and told them what I wanted done. It's such a simple job that they all gave me an estimate over the phone so I didn't have to drive around. I noticed that the small shops are much cheaper. The big fancy ones wanted $95-$125 to do the job. You do need to take off the kickstand and take it to the shop. If the shop took the time to take it off the bike for me, they said they would charge extra.Where have you had yours done? Muffler shop? Where do they do something like this?
Thanks for your feedback.
I asked my stealership and they don't do anything for free! Said it would be an hour charge for the job .Take off your kickstand and take it to the dealer. Tell them that you had your bike lowered and ask them if they can lower the kickstand for you. Most likely, they will do it for free or a very small fee. Had a guy did my kickstand at my dealer for no charge, but I handed him $10.
