    Center stand, removal

    So, I want to remove my center stand and while I can easily see the two bolt which hold it on getting access to them is a different story altogether. Any tips? Seems like the mufflers is blocking it on both sides.

    Center stand hitting swingarm.

    Since I replaced my stock exhaust with a full exhaust and added a notched and braced swingarm, I noticed that the center stand touches the swingarm. Since there is nothing holding it lower, it keeps hitting it. The small rubber I guess is there for avoid bumping the stock exhaust, but in my...

    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.
