does your heel hit your kickstand???

11 posts in this topic

Does anyone else have this problem on an '05 wr450? It's not bad, but it is annoying forcing my foot in a slightly less comfortable position.

Or, is it just my riding stance? I do ride a little duck footed.

Just wondering if it's just me?

Thanks

I have a 99 WR 400 and some time I feel my foot hit the stand but never to badly. Looks pretty easy to take off and put back on though. Maybe you might want to think bout removing it for those all day trial rides. Just a thought maybe to much for some folks but if you think that its really buggin ya it's something think bout. When I go to the dunes I will be taking mine off ad just burning the tire into the sand and using natures kick stand. Just my thoughts.

yup,its a pita with size 13's!! i took it off and used a triangle for a while,but lost that. i'm thinkin'bout getting some kind of quick disconnects for it. it also saves almost 2 lbs gone. :naughty:

No, guess my size 9s aren't long enough to be a bother. I do, however, manage to catch my fair share of stumps, rocks, gate posts etc. with my klutzy riding style.

I have a size 13 boot and my foot hits the kick-stand. At first I thought it would be a big problem, but now it doesn't really bother me for some reason. I feel it there sometimes, but most of the time I don't, but I am sure I am probably preoccupied or I am used to it, or both.

My foot hits: the kickstand, rocks, stumps, the ground, trees, my shift lever unintentionally, ect. :naughty: Honestly, so far my size 10's have not been an issue with the kickstand. I think it would suck not to have a kickstand though.
