    Kick stand engine kill switch

    I just found out today that if your kickstand is out the engine will die if put in to gear. I'm sure most of you know this but I didn't and couldn't figure it out until I was going to park it and call the wife for a ride so I could get my trailer. Anyway, if you didn't know now you do.

    Kick stand shortening danger

    I heard that when doing any welding (electrical) grounding the welder to the bike's frame can damage electrical components of the bike:a014: , I don't know if this is true or not and what kind of damage does it do. If anyone has more information about that subject please post it. Thanks

    Kick Stand Mod.

    Shortened stand and relocation of the upper pivot point of the spring. Since I bought the bike new 2 years ago, when I push it around and the side stand scrapes the floor a bit, it flips up without noticing it sometimes. Never had a bike that did this and would hate to drop it not realizing...
