I am seting up my bike for street use and I want to buy a kick stand. I don't like the kind where you have too drill holes in your swingarm. I have seen the baja designs one and it is kind of cool but $150 seems a little high and I don't want something permanent. I still want to be able to ride on the track from time to time. Any sugestions?

Your right about not getting the kind that you have to drill into your swing arm. I have one on my RMX 250 and the bolts are starting to strip out and it rattles a lot and makes a lot of unwanted noise.

They don't seem to have one for the YZ yet. Hopefully in the next few weeks.

I recieved this message on 4/15 from them:

The YZ stands should be ready in about 3-4 weeks. I will put you on the list and notify you when they are done.
Thanks,

Rocky Mountain MC has one for $59.00. I have had one of these on my YZ400 for about 2 years and love it. Plus it comes off easy when you want to do some track riding. www.rockymountainmc.com then search for kickstand.

Nothing clever to say here.....

Bye the way, I forgot to mention that the kickstand is the clamp on type that mounts on the swingarm, not the kind you have to drill holes in your swingarm. You just have to check the bolts every few rides to make sure they are nice and tight. They have a tendency to work their way loose once in a while.

I just picked one up from 2 dads racing. It's really nice. Uses a machined bracket to mount the stock wr kick stand and bracket to the lower subframe mount and chain roller. cost me $150 but it seems stout(haven't gone riding to test it yet). Phone # 818.993.3237

2 dads racing. Bolts on, very stout & swings well out of the way. Well worth the $.

I recently bought the $150 monster from Baja designs. It is a very well built stand. And unlike what there web site says, it is a bolt on stand. It uses wr parts. It bolts to the chain roller mount and has a machined aluminum part that bolts to the subframe mount.

When I ordered the stand There catalouge said that it was $120. THey told me that the price on the yamaha parts went up. He said that they are hardly making any money on the stand at $150. He said that they will be designing there own stand latter this year.

The one I bought is very sturdy. Probably way better than the swingarm types.

For $50.00 You can buy a clamp on stand from a company in SLC UT. Its called Utah Cycle.I bought one about 6 months ago and have no problems. What I dont understand is why you would want to ruin your mx bike and add all that weight. Buy a freakin scooter!
