Side stand extender
« on: December 26, 2013, 12:39:49 am »
Hey guys, here I put a picture of the side stand extender I made for my byke. I have a workshop and free time to do the bike accessories. In another post I will post pictures of the protective bars that I made ​​for the fairing and panniers.





There are two kinds of people, those who dream and ........ the people that get their dreams.

Good job!  And I thought the sidestand to be already really good, but obviously improvement can be made.

I wish this forum  had a "dumb questions" section, as here comes mine.

What is the big advantage to this sidestand extender?  What is the problem with the stock sidestand as is?

My 84 Venure sidestand is very short which is sometimes a problem, so I carry a hockey puck to rest the sidesand on as necessary. It even needs it on level ground or the bike is leaned over a bit too much. But I notice no such problems with the TTSE sidestand. Nor have I noticed any other problems with the stock TTSE sidestand as is.

I suspect this application is to distribute the weight of the motorcycle when parked in gravel, soft earth, hot asphalt, etc. and has nothing to do with height.  I think it is a great idea and will likely copy it.  With permission of course.  :002:
