Side stand too long?

Post by av8r » Wed Dec 30, 2015 2:41 am

My 15 came to me with the TT big foot thingy bolted on the side stand foot. I've noticed that the bike is nearly upright when on the side stand so I have to watch where I park it for fear it'll topple over. Any solutions for this other than cutting, shortening and welding the stand?

I made this simple mod to the kickstand on my 15 1190R by getting it up on the center stand, swinging the side stand up and then grinding away somewhere between 1/16th to and 1/8 of an inch of the sidestand stop. This lets the sidestand swing further ahead which allows the bike to lean over a little more. I did this after I embarrassed myself at a gas station a couple of times. :oops: Nuff said.
