NOTE: the picture shows a 916-style kickstand on a 888. If you source a 748-998 kickstand bracket from eBay or elsewhere, you can bolt up the SSR Billet Kickstand on your 749/851/888/999.
 
What is the advantage of the SSR Billet Kickstand?

Simple - so that your Ducati doesn't lean over like the Tower of Pisa on its kickstand. We have an aftermarket kickstand on every one of our Ducati, either because the bike leaned over too much on the stock kickstand from the factory or because I decided to raise the back end of the bike to quicken steering. This kickstand is 1 inch longer (25.4mm) and prevents the bike from leaning over dangerously on the kickstand. What is the danger of the bike leaning over too much? First, the more the bike leans over, the more weight is on the kickstand. This is dangerous when parking on tarmac because the kickstand can punch through the surface. With a longer kickstand, less weight is applied to the kickstand and it is less likely to punch through softer surfaces. Second, it takes a lot more effort to straighten up a bike that leans heavily. Riders have pulled muscles and strained themselves trying to muscle bikes off the kickstand.

Are there any downsides to this kickstand?

The only possible downside would be if the bike sits too upright with the +1" kickstand, thus increasing the chance of a tip over. By raising rear ride height slightly, this problem is eliminated.

How do I install the kickstand?
1) Put bike on a rear stand.
2) Use a spring hook tool to remove the spring from the kickstand BEFORE removing the kickstand bracket. Note the orientation of the spring bracket that attaches to the backside of the kickstand bracket.
3) Remove the kickstand switch (if necessary).
4) Loosen the kickstand bolt/nut.
5) Remove the kickstand from the bracket (if necessary to remove kickstand bolt/nut - not all models require this).
6) Install new kickstand and reattach kickstand switch.
7) Put kickstand in up position and reattach spring/spring bracket.
8) Test the functioning of kickstand while on the rear stand, ensuring the bolt/nut are secure.
9) Adjust stop screw to increase the distance between the new kickstand and the chain. Once you are satisfied with the correct distance, use thread locker to prevent "stop screw" from moving.
10) Test to see how much the bike is leaning over on the kickstand. If the bike does NOT lean over enough with the billet kickstand, loosen the locknuts on the rear suspension control rod and make it longer. That will raise the back end of the bike and increase how much the bike leans over. Raising the back end a little will have NO detrimental effects in terms of handling. As a matter of fact, it will quicken steering and most owners will find the bike easier to haul through turns.
Is the kickstand compatible with the kickstand switch?
Yes it is. On the 749/999, the kickstand switch mounts to the backside of the kickstand. There is a machined hole on the backside of this billet kickstand for this fitment. On other models, the kickstand switch mounts to the front side of the kickstand.
Is the kickstand adjustable?
An adjustable "stop screw" allows for adjustment of the "up" position of the kickstand.
