Stronger kick and center stand springs

I'm looking for stronger side stand and center stand springs. Maybe mine are just worn out and new ones will do the trick, but my stands keep slapping around when I am off-road. If I am jumping a log or something, often my side stand will fall just enough to trip out the kill switch and stall the bike.

If the new springs don't work for you it is easy to bypass the side stand switch.

You can do it permanently by joining the 2 wires with a blue scotch lock wire joiner.

Less permanently by fitting a switch between the two wires so you bypass the switch when off road.

You could add some bungee cord, if placed right it would secure your stand but still have the stand available for use.
