Considering this. It feels like the stock one slips a little before "settling" if that makes sense.

To bad there's not really a way to stand the bike more upright.

I've also felt that "slip". Maybe just play/slop in the stand pivot?

This enlarger raises the R3s left side about 3/16"......:eek:

I'm thinking about grabbing those kickstand extension plates to have a bit more of a bigger surface area for the kickstand.
I'm always iffy when getting off the bike, and guessing this would help parking on any non hard surface.
Anyone got one ? Mind showing a pic ?

Here's few I found so far, not sure if those with 3 or 4 screws are secure enough.

I ordered one but am waiting for it from Japan though Web!ke. I got the Bikers (Thailand part Co) kickstand pad. Will help on those hot days while parking on asphalt.

Web!ke has kickstand pads from 3 different companies (Dimotiv, Bikers,& some brand called "KKK Product" in a variety of colors.

Web!ke kickstand pads


Here is the direct link to the Dimotiv one. and on Ebay

I ordered the Bikers one but am totally feeling the Dimotiv now, especially in gold. Dimotiv has a store on Ebay too. Here is the Dimotiv Ebay store front. Wherever you order one of these from, it'll take a bit since it'll be from Japan or Taiwan.

Be warned. Once you start surfing Web!ke, you'll start incessantly adding parts to your cart. Trust me. Already done like 2 orders of multiple parts.

That blows the big one. :| Haven't gotten mine yet, but I'll post pics and give a review of its performance once I do.

I did it pretty tight, but as a friend pointed out that he normally would use Loctite or something similar on something like this.

I eventually took it off due to paranoia. I normally keep a puck under the seat cowl if i need to park on the soft stuff.

Definitely need to use Blue Loctite on the screws. Mine has stayed on and the screws are still tight.

See my post above....It doesn't look as nice as the Dimotiv but it fit fine and does the job.
