Sidestand tipping
« on: July 08, 2015, 12:41:24 AM »
Had an opportunity to pull into a parking lot at a local store the other day and the only place available to park had a very slight left lean.  When dismounting the bike it tipped left up off the sidestand with the wheels almost getting air.  Someone had mentioned earlier that they thought it tipped a bit much to the left but I hadn't had an issue with this before now.  Something to be aware of.   :033:

I had a similar experience and thought the stand had retracted; the stand is fairly short for this bike.

Have to agree.  I'm going to make it a point not to leave it running on the sidestand for sure!  Have heard of other bikes tipping with stands that are not this short on other bikes when left running!   :114:
