    Side stand extension

    Afternoon gents,
    So, been online and looking for a side stand extension for the Gen 2 XR. Bloody hell, wanting £65 and thats without delivery.

    I see there are some clever people on here with 3d Printers etc. Can or has anybody tried to replicate one of these extension pieces??
    Has anybody on here actually bought and using one and does it make a load of difference.

    I use a Cymarc extension and I must say it makes all the difference.  The bike without an extension, leans over far to far for my comfort.  Yes it was expensive, but to me very necessary.

    I don’t think 3D printing - produces a material which is up to the task of extending a side-stand foot.

    You get foot enlargers from China which add approximately 5mm to the height, combined with a reluctance to sink into gravel and dirt like the OEM one.  It’s sufficient to make a difference and you learn to look for a ‘beneficial’ orientation for your bike, rather than other bikes where you looked for a level aspect.   

    If you think about it - it is just as onerous to find a level area as a slight uphill one.

    Most side stand extenders extend in surface area, not really in height. On another forum there is a german guy offering two versions, and at a lower cost. One is a 10mm extension to fit with the center stand, the other one 16mm to fit without centerstand. Picture is 16mm one

    That extension looks good - anodised aluminium?

    The one (adjustable) from Cymarc - looks like a mid-sixties ‘surgical boot’.

    Not sure, and can't find out. They are milled out of a solid block. I think i will place an order, for the 16mm one. In my garage I used a 36mm multiplex wood spacer for the gen1 and gen 2. Works well in the garage, but for general use a lower spacer is more secure as it puts less force on the mounting. He does have a website

    It's a Ford V6 thing, but in the black bar on the top click "sonstiges/motorrad" on the right

    (Editted again, this should work :002:)

    Thats a shame, when you go to basket and upate delivery to UK
    Total almost £45. Still a saving on British equavilant though.

    Anybody got one for sale?? Just missed out on that was going on here. Snooze you lose  :001:

    I put a Cymarc extender on my bike ( a Gen 1) but I see they have them for the Gen 2 but at the price range that is higher. Don't want my bike toppling over so was happy to pay a bit more. It works very well IMHO and doesn't give you that sinking feeling (no pun intended) when you use the standard side stand.

    Oh you most definitely can! Just got to choose the right material, Something like this I'd print from Nylon or some sort of Polycarbonate. They'd resist the wear on the ground and be more than strong enough to handle to the weight of the bike without being brittle.

    Does the cymarc one not hit the centre stand when the side stand is up? The looks of it are very decisive.
