    Sounds better than hunting for a rock or chunk of wood everywhere I park

        Why would you need one guys?
        Surely if the bike is more upright its more likely to get blown over by wind or the odd 'knock'??

          People with raised tails due to aftermarket longer shocks, or flipped eccentrics. The stock stand will be a bit short.

              I have the fox on mine and its lean with the sidestand is about 30 left of vertical. The rear head seeps a little oil from the seal when its leaned over that far so until I spec my valves and replace the seals I like to keep it a bit more upright.

                  well as having just put a fox shock on my bike and raised the rear end a bit, i could certainly see the use of such an item.

                  if you could send some pics of what looks like, i will likely pick up one for me and one for marc. he will know soon enough why he needs it.

                        A real easy fix is to take off the side stand, cut a hockey puck to the right size, drill holes, add longer bolts and bolt on the kick stand. It blends in pretty good and does not look goofy. It was an obvious fix for a Canadian, I have a lot of extra hockey pucks laying around.
