Would that not also make the Reynold's stand non-functional.

When on the center stand, the Reynolds is set at the correct height where the suspension is fully extended and the front tire is just slightly off the ground. Does that make sense? So, when the bike is off the Reynolds stand, it (Reynolds) should not interfere with the lean angle (I hope) because I now have my AWESOME new suspension set up at the proper LADEN SAG (kudos to Tom Cutter) so I should have more ground clearance and lean angle.

Oh, I see.

The Reynolds stands I've seen usually involve the bike rocking back and forth from side to side, the stand barely touching the ground.

Thanks for the detailed info. Beautiful bike, btw.

I am just trying to keep people from having heart attacks or, worse yet, getting hurt. Those ride off stands are dangerous even when they fold up right on the exhaust like they should. Riding with less sag is only going to delay the inevitable scraping to a higher speed or, worse yet, when you are trying to avoid something. I suspect the side stand isn't much better. A sport bike with solid steel curb feelers? Sorry but is isn't right on almost every level starting with just looks.

Starting with "just looks", that is in the eye of the beer-holder. Functionally, they are GREAT ( keep your bike from falling over ) . SS, I understand, I have scraped hard parts. Now I have "less sag", but I am so old now I will likely never scape those hard parts again. H@ll, I had a '98 Honda Superhawk and scraped hard parts at Arroyo Seco, almost made me high-side, but I am and old motocrosser, ain't nuthin' gonna buck me off.

Tefco dry legs

They are Tefco Dry Legs made by a company in Texas. They also made an awsome m/c camping trailer. I think only a few were ever produced. I had Dry Legs on my 1986 R65 S.

Nope, not these ones.........Heinrich as sold by Jeckel in the early '80's.
