Default Re: kick stand

My bike is not terribly heavy, as I only have a 2 smoker engine and dont have my bike loaded down with gear. However, here is what I did. I bought an adjustable kickstand at wallyworld or kmart, forget which. It wasn't long enough, so I hacked a section of aluminum off my luggage rack, drilled a hole through the end of the kickstand and a hole through the secton of aluminum that I cut off, put a bolt through it, and put loctite on it. the section of aluminum was bent, so my kickstand actually has a foot as well. been working fine for over a month, and I fully aniticipate it to hold my bike fine after my predator is installed. I am also gonna use that trick of positioning the pedal in front of the kickstand though. I lik that idea.
