Side stand Foot in Aussie......

No, it's not on the opposite side........but definitely down under.

Hi Dave

Side stand foot arrived quicker than most mail from your side of the world.
Now fitted after grinding off a bit of excess weld that BMW left behind.
I'm looking forward to the extra surface area it will provide on a trip around Tassie in February/March.

Thanks for your assistance with an overseas purchaser.

Cheers
Ron

MOD F800 GS & F650 GS (twin) Side Stand Feet in Black

We have decided to do both the F800 GS & F650 GS (twin std.height only) Side Stand Feet in black!

Not just any anodizing will do though...these are hard anodized. The hard anodizing is about twice as hard as standard.

Some pics:


and mounted:

So now you have to clean up your side stand and hit it with some black rust paint if it looks like this!

They are both available now and they are a couple of bucks (Canuck bucks that is) more.

Stainless steel bolts and the patented Disc-Lock(r) washers in stainless steel to make sure it stays there included of course!

We are going to have these on special at the Vancouver Moto Show but some (most?!) of you won't be there so if you are experiencing some "it's January and I can't ride my bike at all/much (for some of us anyhow) but I want something neat for it but I don't have any money" Then we'll have a special for you...visit here for details:

Thanks for checkin it out!

Dave

Dave I really have to say for such a little farkle...the time and effort you put into designing this is not over looked. I love this footprint...it is by far the best...why? It totally fits the bike and works. This kick stand foot print never interferes with me getting the stand down and really does it's job in soft terrain. I will post a pic of my self painted black one soon again. I think we posted ours when we got them.

You can not even tell it is on the bike to be honest which is a good and bad thing...I just point it out! Thanks Dave!

We're getting to the end of the Show Special...only 3 days left!

Click the link above but essentially it's free shipping anywhere for the Black Hard Anodized version and the same price as the raw one: $30.00 CAD.

Thanks!

Dave

Argggh!

We shipped a Black F800 GS Side Stand Foot to Australia and got it wrong...we accidentally put in a F650 GS one!!

They should have the right one by now, but anyone Down Under with a F650 GS (twin) looking for a side stand foot?

It's already on the continent looking for a home

Thanks,

Dave
