On my 2015 I cut the stand and welded the foot back on, bit of paint and looked like new, I kept the bit I took off then welded it back on when I sold it without the lowering plates, lowered my2019 but not as much so stands ok without modifying it, but I might still cut it . A decent weld and then grind the weld smooth you can't tell it's been altered. They do a shim kit for the stand for the 2019 onwards but I found the bolts they provide started to bend making it lean further and further over time so as I said I've put it back to stock, I've just to be careful where I park.
I am getting ready to lower a 2019 se lt as well and I was just wondering if you lowered the front too?

Yes you should lower the front. Motowerks product comes with instruction and they suggest to lower the front. I lower the front my 2019 SE by 1" and no issues.

Were you able to get the front lowered without taking much apart those upper clamp screws look fun to get to?

digitalrebel, instructions for lowering the front are on the MotoWerk website though if I remember correctly it is a copy of the Kwak service manual. MotoWerk has a suggested lowering measurement also.

In Cherokee, there are 7 directions:  north, south, east, west, up, down, and where you are.

The instructions on their website are just for up to 2018 the 2019 and on section there is no front instructions(im sure the 18s are similar)

Sorry, that's just disappointing. Since I ride a 2015, I hadn't looked at more recent models.

I was just wondering if anyone had done the front forks themselves on a 19 or 20 and how easy or hard it was to do.  I have the kit coming so I guess Ill figure it out soon.

Yes, its easy to do. Put the bike on the centre stand and slowly loosen the fork clamps on one leg, ONLY DO ONE LEG AT A TIME. Don't fully loosen them, I leave one tight enough to hold the forks as they are and undo it just enough so you can turn/wiggle the fork in the clamp and  the clamp will move down the fork slightly then clamp it up and do the same to the other. They only need a few millimeters.
