The only time it feels heavy is when lifting it off the sidestand. Dang thing leans over too far. I checked it, not much play in the stand, just need to weld a plate under the foot. Can't imagine how hard it would be if I actually dropped it! lol (knock on wood!!!!)

I recently replaced the stand and bracket on the Police bike. I was originally going to weld a bottom plate on but noticed when deployed the stand was much further forward as well as out. Couldnít find a single failure point on the old stand or bracket, just several small issues that together created the problem. Fortunately the stand and bracket are much cheaper than the Stroms.
