Side Stand "Big Foot"

Recommended Posts

Other than the R&G offering and the probably poor quality ex China cheap offering ( I saw one of these for a Tiger and the top plate was made of soft rubbish) ----- has anybody found another good product ??

....well I just noticed you are in Scotland so probably not cost effective.

Get a cheap ebay one, but loctite the screws in as they fall out easily. It doesnt matter that they are light alloy as they only take a static force.

The SW Motech offering is more expensive than R&G's !

I finally decided to buy an R&G.

This. 

Cheap Chinese doesn't bother me here. I reserve my cringe for those using cheap cast levers and pegs with giant voids in them that will ruin your day in much more dramatic ways.

I have this Yamaha OEM on my Tracer 900 GT, good quality and works a treat.

I also bought the cheap $9.99 Chinese plate of of ebay.  As said above, loctite the screws.  Other than that it works the same as any other side stand enlarger.

Typically, I try not to buy the Chinese stuff but comparing prices it's really hard to justify outrageous prices other vendors are asking. 

Not the best pic., but here is the black plate on my bike.

Can anyone speak to this? Do such side stand extenders help the bike feel more stable when mounting standing on the pegs? Do they reduce the lean angle? When I ride with a tail bag I need to mount using the foot pegs but feel unstable. I would love a solution other than getting over feeling unstable. Thanks!

I have the same Chinese one as others have mentioned above and can say that I've used the pegs to mount/dismount for the same reasons you've mentioned and have had no issues.  I've also had the lowering dog bones installed and so the bike is a little more upright on the stand compared to a bike that hasn't been lowered.  Having said that, the 'foot' can only do so much.

The short answer to your question in my experience though is yes, it is more stable.  YMMV of course. 🙂

Thank you! I’ll check into a lowering dog bone, that’s new to me. I will probably add a plate for fun.

Sorry I should not have been so assuming that everyone would know what the 'dog bones' are.  I installed the Yamaha lowering kit links - AKA dog bones (see image for why they're called that 🙂) to - you guesses it - lower the bike.   They're not really directly associated with the sidestand as they go in the rear suspension/swingarm area.

The only reason I mentioned them was because the bike tends to be just a little more vertical with the sidestand deployed as the bike, after installation, is a little bit closer to the ground afterward.

Hope that makes sense.

Bottom line is - get the foot!  You won't be any worse off. 🙂
