Kickstand Spur Breaks

Post by Steve539 » Tue Sep 13, 2016 3:05 am

Less than 250 mile on the bike and threaded kickstand spur broke clean off where threads of spur meet the kickstand.

Any fix or good aftermarket kickstand ?

Apparently this has been happening frequently. It happened to me as well. I believe KTM is working on a fix. In the meantime I found this in the USA:

As they like to say "they all do that" but in this case that just might be true. I just got my GT on Thursday and have been babying that every time I use it I haven't knocked it off yet but it's only a matter of time. I'm sure it would be a warranty claim I wonder what the fix will be.
Good luck, have fun, and don't break anything

Mine got broken off when the mechanic was prepping it. So i have never had one. I've gotten quite use to reaching the end of the stand with my toe, so I don't really need it.

Add me to the list. 202 miles. Maybe 6 rides total. Cracked off as I put down the peddle in my garage... KTM should address. Looks like garbage quality material used, IMHO

Mine was fitted with the updated version at first service, its actually longer so easier to catch your heel on it when putting the side stand down .

Mine broke off the other day, looks like a brittle piece of junk. FFS, how could this pass there quality control, surely some broke in their testing. Man its a pain in the ass trying to put the stand down, guess its another warranty claim, along with the non existent quick shifter.

Theres a recall on the stand spur, i picked up my new part yesterday, the bike shop said bring the bike in and they can remove the broken thread, but 200K away i said i will give it a go. so i drilled into the broken thread and wound it out with this tool i had for removing broken threads, like a reverse worm drive, worked easy, now the new part KTM supplied is wound in, and the old broken one was made up of 2 parts, separate them, the outer part threads into the new part, all done. :P
