Side Stand Modification
« on: June 08, 2015, 01:19:41 am »
A couple of months ago I mentioned that I thought the side stand on the trophy was a little short, and the lean angle while on the stand a little excessive. The angle was so much that I couldn't sit my helmet on the bike without it rolling off. I started looking for a stand extension for the Trophy that would also give it a little larger footprint, but was not able to find one that did both. So, about a month ago I made one that I cut from an aluminum block. I cut it 3" round and 1/2" thick. I had to cut the left side of the puck to fit flush on the left side of the side stand to prevent it from hitting the shaft housing when the stand was in the up position. I was able to reduce the lean angle and now have the angle where I feel it should be. Also, a little larger footprint to help prevent it from sinking in soft surfaces. This is what it looks like and the new lean angle.

Nice Job.

 :451:

I feel obliged to mention that there are only two places for a Helmet.

1. On your head.
2.  On the floor.

I have seen too many very expensive helmets descend to earth at 32ft/sec/sec with devastating commotion from the owner.  Please don't put helmets on seats at whatever lean angle. Please.

Later

 :157: :157: Then add the speed at which you left the motorcycle after initial impact   hmmm,  wonder what my helmet was doing when that ford truck full of rednecks ran into me and totaled my 2012 wing. But what ever the final speed at final stop it did its job

A helmet is a ground seeking device, nuff said
