Default Kick stand

Is it just me or is the kickstand about impossible to kick out with your foot?

What really helps is to clean it up really well and keep it lubed.

Also search here https://www.rswarrior.com/forums/13-...-question.html

What I did was clean it very well, lubed it up and extended the stop behind the kickstand so that it pushes the kickstand out some more. You can do this with some rubber hose.

Remove the rubber kick stand stop, add spacers between the frame & the rubber stop to move the stop away from the frame a bit = the stand will stick out a bit more. Don't recall if you need a longer fastener or not I did the mod maybe 2002.

Like the others have said, keep it clean and lubed. Also, I had to train myself to kick out, not down, like on my sportbike.

Rubber chair tips.
Been using them for years on many bikes. They hold the kickstand out about 1/2-3/4" and you can get to it easier.

I'm really glad this post was made! I normally don't have too much of an issue with the kickstand but the other day I got caught, unprepared, in a cold rain coming back from Dino BBQ in Syracuse and froze my a$$ off on the way home. Got back to the house and my hands and feet wouldn't work properly and couldn't get the kickstand down to save my life, looked like an absolute fool in the garage! Thanks for the posts y'all and i'm glad i'm not the only one.

I have been around here for a little while and have seen the typical kickstand extension ideas but do not remember seeing the rubber stopper ideas of either churchkey or r1j1 both of which are excellent ideas that accomplish the requirement without any modification or bolt on parts sticking off of the kickstand. I am glad i read this thread as it can come in very handy for some of my other bikes as well.

Its great, I use them on all my bikes. Even with the kick stand sticky you get the thing down easier.
