How come you have felt the need to fit that on the bike, what's been happening?

On another note was the side stand plate, not seen that one before?

Hi Gatso
The gear lever is just a bit too high, I like it a little lower just resting on the top of my boot with this fitted it does just that as you cant adjust them

The thing bolted to the bottom of the side stand is a Ice hockey Puk it gives the bike just enough lift for it not to feel like its falling over when on the side stand and strong enough, been doing that for years especially when jacking up the suspension at the rear of a bike
