Easy kickstand mods.
I pulled the V's out this weekend to clean the garage and when I retreive them, the 1k had sunk into the street tar about 2" and the Wee about one. I was suprised how hard it was to pull them free and what would have happened if I'd left them any longer aged me about a year.
Also since we're doing the Al-Can next year, we could have the same problem with dirt and the centerstand.
What to do? Check it:
They're before (1k) and after (650) shots. The larger foot is about 3" at the longest length and 2" at the outside edge. Its about twice the contact area of the stock one.
The centerstand is next. I'll need to be a little more carful to clear the pipes etc. but the same idea will apply.
