Bling Stand

So in my search for a MY10+ sidestand for my 05 F4 I managed to acquire one in great shape from a forum member, but in black vs the silver powder coated version as OEM. So today I used a heavy duty paint stripper and removed all the black, then polished it with my $60 craftsman polishing wheel. Its no MotoCorse CNC piece of kit but its the poor mans version

So does it still have the 'self retracting' action Daren? It looks great, really. And I think I've read that they are 20mm longer, correct?

Yes thanks, sits at a way safer angle and no self retracting action. I think about 20mm longer yes but haven't measured it for sure.

Its got a classy vintage look to it, like how a high end part would look on a vintage machine. I like it.

What's "accidently" nice about it, is that the polishing wheel obviously couldn't get into the nooks and crannys of the logo, so it remained textured inside, almost like it was intentional.
