Shift linkage hitting side stand

My bike came with the foot peg lowering kit installed. I've noticed that the side stand hits the first joint on the shift linkage as you extend and retract it. Anyone else ever seen this?

I have never used lowered pegs or had a Vee so I can't be much help but I'm sure Rick from Adventuretech will be a long shortly to help, he is a smart dude.

It looks to me like your stand is bent out and that could be your problem ???

The stand has some play in it as it has worn some. I pulled it apart not long ago and got most of the play out of it.

Just went out in the garage and rotated the linkage one spline. That fixed it but also puts my shifter higher than the foot peg just slightly.

You've never had a Vee? What are you waiting for? Man with the most bikes wins right?

I have a 2014 V2 and with 24 other bikes to maintain and ride a Vee is not high on my wanted list but I love your enthusiasm....

It has been a while now but when fitting my peg lowering kit I needed to move the shifter arm one spline on the shifter shaft.
The leverage action of the shifter shaft works best when that arm is at 90 degrees to the linkage. It looks to me from your photo as though you should move the arm one spline clockwise. You would need to reset the linkage by loosening the lock nuts on the shaft to bring the lever back down - but I believe that would get that heim joint away from your stand.

That's exactly where I went next. Manual calls for 60 deg so I set it at that then went for the specified drop. What I found was the turnbuckle isn't long enough to achieve this. Take the arm one spline down and you can make it work. But regardless of where the arm is when the shifter is at the proper height it is inline with the kickstand.

I'm thinking this. Because the kickstand is at an angle it wouldn't take much to sole the problem. I'm going to try a thin washer behind the lower plate to give it a little room.

Check your shifter. It should be 3/4" (19 mm) below level with the peg. See instructions linked above. I think your shifter is more or less level with the peg, which is too high. Could just be the angle of the pic though.

Feel free to call me on my cell and send pics. PM sent with phone number.

Oh, and it looks like the shifter is now third hand since it started on a black framed bike. Kinda satisfying.
