Longer Kickstand 650R

2 posts in this topic

Has any one run across an aftermarket XR650R kickstand that is longer? My bike seems to lean over pretty far when parked on concrete and I have to be very selective where I position the kickstand when off-road.

A cut-and-weld extension to the stock kickstand seems quite do-able, but I thought I might first check for a clean aftermarket solution, perhaps even aluminum.

Thanks!

I don't think I've seen a longer kickstand made for any bike...

Unless it got bent out somehow, or is in some other form than stock, I wouldn't worry about it. If you make it too long, or make the bike more upright when its parked, it might have more of a tendancy to tip over.

If your really concerned about it, you could just try to bend yours in a little bit, and see if that helps.
