Bolt on kick stand?

Recommended Posts

Anyone have any recomendations for a bolt on kickstand for a '02 YZF250? I have seen a few on line but thought I would check with the TT knowledge base before droping $168 (promoto billet) for a kick stand.

Thanks.

I was looking around last night on here to do a little research on the same thing. In some older post I found that the Trail Tech works good and is very easy and quick to take off if needed. Plus its only $80. Thats what I think Im going to do.

That's the one I was looking at too. I can't see the PMB one being worth twice as much if they both hold the bike up.

I haven't heard anything bad about either one.

I've never seen the trail tech in person but the PMB is simply awesome. Never comes down and the spring is internal. The thing is ROCK solid and very sleek. Anyway, if you have the extra $$ you won't be disappointed with the PMB.

I won't sell mine until I sell my bike. The thing rocks.

I suppose I should also mention that I bought my used!

Yeah all I need it for is riding here at my house so all I need is something that does the job.

I bought the trailtech kickstand this spring and it has worked great all year. I also looked at the PMB but couldn't see spending the extra money.

I have had a Trail Tech on my YZ426 for about a year. It is identical to a KTM EXC kickstand with a YZ mounting plate. Was very easy to mount and has held up very well. I'm not sure I'd want to make of habit of standing on the bike while it's on the stand (it's not nearly as robust as a stock WR unit). Two thumbs up :cry: :cry:

Got my stand yesterday afternoon. I have to admit, its a nice looking piece. And it took just about 5 minutes to install.

The only strange thing is that it hits the side number plate when you fold it up. I guess I'll have to notch the plate a little. I just think it will look like crap after it rubs for a long time, otherwise I wouldn't worry about it.

Man its nice to have that on there...

Btw, the box states that it can be used to start the bike on. If it failed doing that, I would expect it to be warranteed.
