• RD sidestand modifying kit
If you’ve got an RD model with aftermarket exhausts you may have issues with your sidestand/ground clearance. If so, HVCcycle has the answer. These guys say: “Since we now sell our own line of exhaust systems, we did not want to leave our customers scratching their heads trying to figure out a way to allow the side stand to fit with expansion chambers. So we sat down and came up with a solution that will be easy to install, maintain our high quality standards and, most importantly, work.” These should work with any aftermarket spannies on the following models: Yamaha DS7/R5, RD250/RD350, RD400 and RD400F.
