Sidestand feet
on: October 04, 2016, 08:48:39 AM
Hi All

Decided the bike is not stable enough on the standard sidestand on any kind of camber. Especially when it has panniers fitted.

What are people using ? The Cymarc one looks good, but does it make the bike too upright ?

Cheers

SW-Motech.

Doesn't increase the height much at all.

I did wonder if the height increase of the Cymarc might be a good thing ?

Having the bike on an angle does make it easy to mount.  It also makes it stable on sloping surfaces...

I have found mine is really lean't over even on the flat. If the slope is the wrong way its really really unstable. Does not have to be much of a slope either.

The stock foot is just too small for a bike of this size.  It is the sidestand straight off the R.

The bigger foot is a real, practical improvement.  I have them on all my bikes.

Hell yes, I use the centre stand if I'm away from the bike for more than an hr, settles my mind  :087:

You'll never see a motorbike parked outside a psychiatrists.
