Lowering a 2019
« on: September 20, 2019, 04:33:20 AM »
So I did a search and found little-it looks like the Rally Raid 20mm lowering links are the way to go to put it back to pre 2019 heights-but what about the side stand the bike does lean alot stock will it be OK using the side stand as is or would a pre 2019 stand be best

I used the Rally Raid link as well as shaved the seat :187: for my wife's 2019 CB500X. You are correct that the side stand needs to be modified or replaced. The bike stands too vertical with the lowering link installed and was way to easy to tip over especially of the ground was not perfectly level. I ended up buying the T-Rex racing adjustable one for the bike which works well, but you can achieve the same results if you want to cut and weld your current one.

Hi Motorboy - Looking at the fiche for the 2018 and 2019 bikes, I can't see any reason why you couldn't just buy a stand leg for the earlier model and fit that - they are around $30.

Yes it seems 2013-2018 X- R -F all use the same stand and spring 2019 X different part number for the stand but same spring- so I'm thinking the 2019 stand is longer from the spring down-got a friend with a 2018 500F- Sat morning is bike coffee day will do some measurements--it looks like Rally Raid is out of the lowering kits for the 2019X at the moment- 4-6 weeks wait

Did the measurements on the two side stands the 2013-2018 R-F-X is 20mm shorter than the 2019 X-so it's a good fit when using the Rally Raid lowering plates
