Default Excessive lean -Jiffy stand

My bike has longer fork tubes. 6 over I think. I believe the jiffy stand is stock. The bike leans a lot. I know these Ironheads lean a lot anyway, but this one leans a lot. I mean a whole lot. Is there a longer stand I can buy?

My jiffy stand was cracked off when I got the bike. Bought a new one off of ebay that is just like the original stock. I don't have extended forks but was still concerned about the lean angle anyway. Seemed excessive to me but I have been reassured after comparing to stock and posting this thread http://xlforum.net/forums/showthread.php?t=2074846

In hind site, I wish I would of purchased the extended length jiffy stand. They are 1" longer than stock and plenty to choose from.

Here is one for example https://www.jpcycles.com/product/530...-for-sportster

Hi,

if I had this problem, I would find a welder, cut it in half, weld a section in to the length that suits your needs.

Andy.

That would be about the right size.

I saw a video for Little Ricky's extension block. Seems like something I could easily make up from a block of scrap aluminum.

Thanks to one of our forum members, I finally have the leaning issue sorted out. This stand is considerably longer than stock. The 1" over stands wouldn't have done the job. Here are before & after pics.

Check the jiffy stand tab mounted to the frame for excessive wear. The one on my 77 was really bad so I welded a new tab on and it's like new.
