I'd like it shortened by 1" and then a +/- 1" adjustment on top of that since I run 21/18 and 19/17 wheels. Can you do that on this stand? My guess is it's got some steel rod already welded inside it from the last work....

Thanks.

Dr650?

This is timely as I was just looking for an adjustable sidestand solution for my DR650 a couple days ago with no luck and just ran across this. When loaded with luggage my DR tends to sit horizontal and if I don't park it on a perfectly level surface it feels like it'll go over if someone looks at it funny. Can this mod be done to a DR sidestand if I send one in?

Would love an adjustable stand (a la DR650) for my TE610.

Bigfoot

Hey Woody,

Certainly the big bikes benefit from a larger footprint. How about adding a larger asymmetric plate at the bottom of the stand? The aftermarket add-on plates (at least on the GS) interfere with big boots while riding, or occasionally while coasting until you get your heel off the plate and close the side stand switch.

Rx:solution #1... for those who will PERMANENTLY keep the new/current configuration the solution is straight forward straight forward,,,we measure what is and what we'd like and modify the sidestand by lengthening/shortening it,,real simple,,,unless of course you are the frustrated owner of a HP-2 and the factory sidestand bracket is the problem from being too weak as well as having too great an outward angle to the bracket

solution #2,,,for those that switch back n forth between several scenarios of ridung using different diameter wheelsets and/or suspension settings,,we can solve that problem by :

A,,buying an extra sidestand and modifying them to fit each particular need,,,downside of course swapping you now need to swap sidetands in addition to your wheels,,,or ,,,
B..modifying you existing sidestand so that it would be adjustable to fine tune over a desired range,,,,below is one of my current ones,,,this one has a large nylock that allows the side stand to be adjusted by just twisting the foot-plate..the pics are self explanatory,,it works well and is speedy,,,my other version is similar only has a regular nut instead of the nylock. it uses a jam nut that needs a wrench or possible wings to be weldedon to lock the lower sidestand in place.


Below are some pics of an adjustable sidestand i created for my R1100GSwhich was tilted some 18 degrees,,,it's oem length is 13'' from the bottom of pad to the center of the pivot bolt,,,i cut a section out and welded it back together as you see,,, The sidestand can now go between 12.5" and 14.5". ,,,,currently at 14'' it straightened the bike to nice lean angle of 10 degrees,,,,,it is an adjustable sidestand with great strength.














How did you manage not melting the nylon in the nut when welding it?

well we had plenty of wet rags around the bolt

FYI,,,i solved the problem by making two very thin jam nuts by cutting a std nut in half....so i use it to jam the side stand in it's proper place

Ah! and I thought you were chilling it with liquid nitrogen
The jam nut thing is far superior IMHO

HP2 Side stand Bracket

Hi Woody, I replaced my bracket with the oem BMW bracket under warranty. Now it's getting sloppy. Are you planning another batch. I would be a buyer for either model. Regards, Mark

Love the 19" wheel you built for me.

I could use one for my '09 TE610. When I use my 17" sumo wheels, my stand sits the bike straight up, almost to the point of tipping over on the right side.
It's fine with the dirt wheels.
