So after I lower my bike to around 2'' in the rear and possibly 1'' in the front, do I need a new kick stand that is shorter?? I have heard something about this but wasnt sure. What have you guys done out there and if I do need a new kickstand, what are the best kinds and what do they cost?

The front lowering kit from HD comes with a shorter kick stand. Not sure about the other kits. Yes you do need it if you go down in the front and back. If you just drop it in the back you won't need it. Front spring kit and rear extenders through Zanottis is $176. If you go with lowered rear shocks expect to pay quit a bit more.

You WILL want a shorter jiffy stand - but, you CAN use the original.

Drop it 2 1/2" - if it rubs, raise it 1/2". (Your Fatboy won't rub).
