I have those same pipes....V&H
Powershots. They won't drag, the way they kick up in the back. My bike is stock height and will stay that way. For some reason my kickstand drags waaaay before the floorboards on the left. No one else seems to have this problem. I have replaced the spring and the bushing, and the stand itself is not bent. I even had another RSC member look at it who is a pretty good wrench, but there's no helping it. I love the look of the lowered bikes, but I have to be able to ride it.
