hello all, 
Have looked at some topics about changing the side stand on some aprilia's, Fireblade stands being used. Has any one out a shorter stand on their RSV4? would like to hear your thoughts.

The stand appears to be made of cast aluminium alloy, is it OK to weld this up? and would.I have to worry about it cracking in future?

It can be welded but needs a bit more expertise than basic steel welding.
