Kickstand
A little pricey but a very nice product. I don't have one but have seen a few on bikes. It would be my kickstand of choice.

My brother has a Pro-Moto Billet on his 426 and I have one on my 450.

They are great. Sturdy, well built and trick as heck.

The spring is internal and is very strong. We ride trails and also a lot of MX tracks and it never flips down or even bounces at all.

I'd recommend it 100%.

I bought the Trailtech (http://www.trailtech...kickstand_1.htm) for my 1998 YZ400f. I am happy with it, but as I am 200lbs+ I do not stand on it to kick the bike over.

I was even able to trim my Works Aluminum frame guards so that they fit also,

I have a Trailtech and also changed the pivot bolt to a steel one.
Aluminum one snapped. I've had no problems with it since.

I also have a Trailtech that the bolt snapped off on...

It's a nice product and is well made, but it sounds like they need a stronger bolt in them. I never kickstart mine with my weight on it either. But when it broke I was in a hurry and kicked it with it down and even though I had both feet on the ground my weight shifted enough to it and it snapped clean off.

Trailtech guarantees it to be strong enough to kick the bike on it, but I guess they tested it with 5 year old girls or something...

Still a nice product and I recommend it.

I'm with him - got one and have never looked back. If you use the Acerbis frame guards, you'll certainly have to trim the left one a bit. Well made and never had a problem with mine :)
