Upgraded to the Camel Toe stand quite a while ago. That, along with a new and improved pivot bushing, allows for a much more stable bike when parked. I'm 6' 2.5" and around 250 lbs and I climb in the peg to get on and off every time. I highly recommend that Camel toe.
Hi guys. A while ago I am sure I saw some pics or a code of someone who had a strap or something similar he had used, maybe attached to the back wheel to pull back the side stand tensioner spring, (the large one and hold it there) when you are swapping the stand. Does anyone remember this? I had a bad experience with a vice grip pulling a spring a whole ago when it let go.
Lotta different ways to do this. I used a broomhandle with a loop of wire, stuck into the wheel. Get the loop the right length and hold the broomhandle in position with your body while seating the spring with both hands.
