:bandit:Never have liked it from the start. But I love the bike! Red/Silver. Now after dropping it, I need a fix. Got lucky, just need help with a replacement clutch lever(OEM) and a better kick stand, longer or maybe non-auto retracting? Mirror and bar end got scratched but it could have been so much worse. I have heard horror stories about these side stands. Please help me stay on my feet. Thanks.:)

auto POS?

Doc Stricker;
1st welcome aboard the Forum......

sorry about the mishap.....whoever came up with the auto return side stand should have been castrated a long time ago

what you need is part #800098707 page A01 of the parts book item #22

the manuals are available in the 'Maintenance Section"

The standard clutch (and brake) levers are anodized aluminum.
Full RRP in the USA looks to be around $100 per.
I have no doubt that someone on the forum will have a spare one.
I'd suggest postiing up a thread in the For Sale / Wanted section of the forum and see if you get any bites.

Doc,sorry to hear about your misshap,I bought a Moto Corse stand off Alex at GP Racing.20mm longer and fits perfect and I adjust it just slightly firm so you have to push it right back with your foot. lg565283326.jpg

Hi thanks Mitch. I'm going to try bending the bracket on the spring first, but I think the longer stand might work best for my short legs. Thks again, Doc.

Hey Mitch,
When I google GP Racing all I get is cart racing stuff. Do you have a link?

You can stop the stand from self retracting by gently hammering the bottom end of the C shaped spring retainer to the left with a rubber mallet until the stopping pin passes the mid-line between the two holes at each end.
