I installed my PMB kickstand on the YZ last night. Took all of 5 minutes. All needed parts were included (except loctite. .. forshame! :) ) and everything fit like a glove. I'm 2 for 2 in PMB products. I also bought their endcap for the YZ and find it to be a top-notch piece.

I'll review the kickstand later after it's torture tested on the CO500 later this year.

If anyone is considering a PMB unit, I give them the thumbs-up. Both pieces have come when they said they would, did what they said they would do, and look trick in the process. As always, YMMV.

Look closely, it says SEE OH, not SEE ARR. :)

I was making reference to the Colorado 500.

Hey Merf.....

Is it really worth a buck and a half? That's the only thing that's been holding me up on getting one for my YZ....

I'm torn between that and a Juice Clutch....

If a kickstand is worth that to you, then yes. My dilemma is that on the Colorado 500, we frequently stop to have breakfast/lunch/dinner in local establishments. Having to find a buddy's bike, unused phone pole, etc became a PITA for 5 straight days. We also impound our bikes overnight at the local hotels. There are 320+ bikes impounded and I was terrified that if I leaned my bike into a buddies, and a gust of wind caught it, I'd have a domino effect like one last seen in Smokey and the Bandit. I didn't want to be responsible for 20 PO'd dirtbikers at 7AM in a parking lot far from my pickup. :D

FWIW, it'll come off once I'm done with the 500. Where I ride 95% of the time, there are ample trees, stands, spectators, etc. I have one only for a once a year, 5 day trip. Same with the plate, lights, mirror, etc.

On the matter of the kickstand... it's a high quality, trick looking unit. It'll get it's true test in about 3 weeks.

I just put this kickstand on my 250F. Man this is one of the best mods I've ever done. The first ride after installation was the best. How cool is that when everyone else is either jockying for the available tie-offs on the trailer or over the nearest tree to hold their bikes. Myself and my buddy with the orange bike pull up to the canopy drop our kickstands and get first choice of captains chairs and cold drinks!!!!!!

Not to mention my life of riding with the rug rats is now way less of a headache!!!

I am sooooooo glad I got this kickstand!
