foot slipping off the main stand i need a mod i think ??
« on: March 09, 2014, 05:15:49 pm »
hi all

well its happened a couple of times now, the last time I nearly dropped the bike

slightly wet conditions panniers full on a trip to the lake district
pulled up flat ground try to lift the bike up onto the main stand
whoops foot slipped off the centre stand mounting point
and  :430: very nearly dropped the bike nightmare it was very close

so a mod needed ???

maybe some anti slip material glued to the top of mounting point
has anyone got any ideas or had the same experience

I had thought to change my boots boot looking at them in the motorcycle shops they all tend to have the same souls so a mod I think ??? :001:

 I leave the side stand down when putting her up and off on the centre stand, just on the off chance she will hopefully fall that way !!!

There are several companies that make adhesive anti slip tapes, 3M come to mind. I have thought about adding a piece of that to my center stand for just this reason. I f a local builders supply store doesn't have this I am sure it can be had online.
