i have the moose one on my yz400f, the kind that clamps on the swing arm. it has never come down un wanted, but it is a little too long so the bike stands a little upright for my liking. it seems like you are always looking for a small hole to put the foot in so the bike does not want to tip over. the pro moto billet "kickit" kick stand looks like the best option, but they are a little expensive. We trail ride all the time and a good kick stand is a must for me.

I have the one thats bolts on to the footpeg works good. There was a hole for the chain giud roller but it never lined up. So I just used the 2 hole on the footpeg.

I have one of these on my 06yz450. Its highly recommended:thumbsup:

+1 on that. Had one on my YZ426 and have one on order already for my 08 YZ450. Never had a single problem with it. Keep it cleaned and lubed and you'll never know it is there (until you need it, of course)

i have the moose one that bolts on (non swing arm). Works great and a lot cheaper than promotobillet...

I have the trail tech one for about $125 and I'm not to happy with it. It rubs the swing arm even after numerous attempts to re shim it with spacers. It doesn't appear to be bent either? I need to contact them again for a resolution.

I have a Trailtech stand on my 400. It fitted without any problems and works just fine. Cheaper than most of the rest available. For me the best value for the $.

I have a promoto billet as well, good unit. Question- it props my bike up almost vertical where I am afraid of it tipping over. Anyone have the same issue?

i used to find not having a kick-stand was a pain i the ass, but after 2 and a half years of getting used to it, i actually dont mind it, and if i got a WR id opt to take the kickstand off, just the way i am :applause:

I second Promoto Billet. It is a great stand. Very stable. I have had one on my 125 and 250. Love them!
