2008 TE610 Side Stand Too Short!

Recommended Posts

I've already modified the bolt on my side stand so the stand doesn't automatically retract.

Now, I need a *longer* side stand. Sheesh, the bike is halfway to the ground when it's sitting on the stock side stand. Any ideas?

After mine cracked at the weld on top I brought mine to a local welder. had it fixed and added an inch and a half to it for $10. he even painted it for me... LOL..... I think its alil too tall now though, now Im alwys looking to park the stand downhill when I used to be trying to put it on the uphill . Id go with an somwheres between an inch and an inch n a quarter. Also, make sure that it's added below the hook on the stand that the spring atatches to unless you want to source a different spring like I had to do.

Alot of people on here have done the similair thing.. good luck and enjoy !! :)

Yup, there short. My guess is the kick stand is for the SM610 and the TE got the same one. That's what I was going to do today, but didn't get around to it. Tomorrow, going to add 1.25" to the stock stand.

Thanks, for the replies, guys. Let us know how the 1.25" works for you, 32spokes.
