S1000XR GEN 2 Side Stand Extension Plate
I don`t know how other riders find this but to me the bike tends to go over to quite a concerning angle (at times) when the side stand is used. If the bike is put on the side stand on a camber it REALLY goes over and can be not the easiest job to get the bike upright again when loaded.
My solution to this problem was to make a stand extension in 2x5mm aluminium segments to `right` the bike to an angle where its much more `user` friendly. Its all held together with stainless fasteners and a stainless steel `top shoe` which clamps onto the stand itself.
Easy to fit, no drilling and works. Comparatively very expensive to manufacture hence the price but it is very good quality and precisely made - each aluminium segment is precisely made to ensure it all lines up exactly and there`s no movement in the extension when the bike is put on its side stand. The product does touch the main stand when retracted - I put a thick black tie wrap around the main stand tube for it to butt against.
I`ve had mine fitted for a few weeks now and I know I would say this but its made a huge difference!
Must Have accessory
Received the side side extension plate this morning, what a beautiful item, brilliantly made. I believe this is a must have accessory for the XR, as in my view the bike, when on its side stand leans over far to much for my comfort. Easy to fit and will look good on the bike.
