this might sound odd but when you go to put your kickstand down DONT try and push it down. the warrior kickstand goes OUT to the side. once you get the feel for pushing it out not down its pretty easy.

Took me a second to realize it goes out, not down. It's also out further than any other bike i've ever been on

I extended the the kickstand 'stop' about 1" and it's brought it out far enough to get your heel on it.
This is what I did too. Whatever else you may hear, for me, before this mod the kickstand "didn't work". Period. After this mod, it worked fine and like any other bike I've owned, I never thought about the kick stand; it just "worked".

Mocho Warrior said it well "Most are accustomed to push (with the foot, obviously) or kick the kickstand downward to open. The Warrior's kickstand has to be pushed or kicked FORWARD"

evilrider said it as well "this might sound odd but when you go to put your kickstand down DONT try and push it down. the warrior kickstand goes OUT to the side. once you get the feel for pushing it out not down its pretty easy."

I keep catching myself pushing down getting nowhere - a change in direction of pressure and viola!

I like the suggested mods as well...

Thanks guys

also remember on a warrior the kickstand goes out to the side more than down. its natural to push down but sticking your heel on it and sliding it straight out to the side will get your stand out a lot better.

All that's good until the rain starts falling... I put non-skid tape, West Marine, on it. In the rain you can barely get a heel on it, let alone deploy it. All of the results work, it depends on how much work you want to devote to it.

I used 3/4" x 1-1/2" heater hose slipped over the rubber bumper. That moved the kick stand out far enough to kick it out easily.

Used chain lube on the pivot point.

That's a neatly engineered set of heal/toe rider controls you've fabricated for your ride (y) (y) (y)
Still trying to figure out how you made the mechanical attachment to the splined shaft as the fastener is hidden?
Also, your shorty center floor stand support :)

2007 YAMAHA ROAD STAR (XV17AWW) SHIFT SHAFT

Fits right on the Warrior shaft.
Pricey but worth it, may be able to find from a parted out bike if patient.

What I had to do was secure the bike and remove the entire kickstand assembly. WD-40 would only work fer awhile.
I took the kick stand assembly apart, cleaned the grime off of every nook and cranny and used marine grease on all the moving parts.
Works as it should now.

Does anybody have problems throwing their kickstand out with their foot seems like no matter what angle I go at it I can't get this thing to flip out and I have to reach down with my hand and pull it out, and if your boots are wet forget about it I'm thinking of welding a small nipple on there so will be easier to catch because this is starting to get annoying.

Thank you for your time
Duane out :D
Hi..I had the same problem so I drilled the outer part of the foot of the kick stand and tapped into it ,then screwed in a Allen key setscrew, then used shrink tube on it to protect my boots.

Rudy's rubber chair leg trick took me a few seconds and cost 1.50 to do. Love it
