I find if I just keep the hinge oiled it's not a problem. Probably do twicr a year.
Took me a second to realize it goes out, not down. It's also out further than any other bike i've ever been onthis 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.
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".I extended the the kickstand 'stop' about 1" and it's brought it out far enough to get your heel on it.
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.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
