I lowered my 2011 vstrom 650 1" when I first purchased it. I did not shorten the kickstand, and probably should have.
When I lowered my 2014 Vstrom 1000, I also had the kickstand lowered 1". I was very happy with the results. I initially tried Soupy's adjustable height kickstand, and was not satisfied with its' functionality.
It should be very obvious once the lowering links are installed, how the bike sits and the need for any/how much lowering.
