Kickstand retention device???

Recommended Posts

The 2001 KTM 450 MXC/EXC I had... it had a lil loop of rubber hanging-down from the sub-frame... this loop of rubber was positioned just right so that when the kickstand was placed in it's retracted (up) position... you could then loop the lil rubber loop over the foot of the kickstand to doubly prevent it from ever coming-down during periods of hard-riding.

Does the WR-R have this lil rubber loop on it?... or any other similar technique employed to prevent the kickstand from ever involuntarily getting knocked back down whilst riding?... (thus cutting the electrical circuit... thus creating involuntary engine/compression braking without warning)

I had the hole but not the strap for my y2k KTM 200 EXC...

so I used a inner tube from bicycles and cut it to an appropriate length and slot it into the hole... and there you have it... a functional kickstand hook

I believe you can do that with the WR-R/X, just have to find a perfect place to tight the rubber (I think the toolbox hook looks pretty perfect :))
