Sidestand for FSE450

Recommended Posts

Hi Guys,

Time to replace the sidestand on my FSE. Does anyone know if an aftermarket stand is available? The Gas Gas one is kinda crappy.

Mal if U can't find one, go to gasgasrider.org and there are two ways to fix the kickstand. I copied Matt R.'s method plus I took mine to the neihborhood welder and cut a 11/2" off and welded a larger foot for $20. My bike stood up too straight after I lowered it and the stock foot would sink in soft terrain.

Mal, scroll down to " Chassis and Body " and check out both: "Kamikazi Stand and lowering links" by TeeJay and "Tech Tip: Fixing the kickstand auto-retraction" by Matt R. Matt has and excellent pic to go with directions. Works great.
