Here's Alistair's sidestand. Per his request, he asked me to post this photo of his sidestand.

Looks good, with a clear mounting point to the rear of the footpeg bolt. I'd spring for this if the price is right. My only negative thought is that the rear mounting eye appears to look weak...

More details please, Alistair

More details please, Alistair...

The front mount is the rear engine mounting through the frame stud and the rear mount uses the left foot rest pivot bolt that has been bushed so that the foot rest bolt can be done up tight and the foot rest still pivot.
It did not appear to have any flex and is probably ideally located for a fully laden bike but it does affect the operation of the centre stand, I think from memory it had to be folded up before you lifted the bike up on to the centre stand. Hope that helps, it is for sale and the original poster has first option if he wants it, $140us shipped.

The only aftermarket sidestand I've been able to locate is this one: http://www.boxxerparts.de/xtcshop/pr...-R-80-G-S.html
Has anybody out there bought this one and, if so, please give me your opinion on this stand. They are pricey (roughly $230 or so including shipping) so I would really need some input prior to getting one.

My bike leans way over (even with with about a 3/4" extension plate under the foot) and is not confidence inspiring, especially when fully loaded. I'm assuming it's bent and the mounting attachment/crashbar is bent/worn/stressed as well. I love the Browns stand on my /6 and am not concerned about the ability of the sidestand to auto-retract or not - I just want a decent alternative to the stock setup.

Any tips, input on the Boxxerparts stand, advice, etc. would be appreciated. As mentioned, an ADV search shows that the stock stand is unsatisfactory for many folks but I've not been able to find a solution. Thanks

Actually I think I have one of there side stands s well,(certainly looks similar) it did not suite me as I have lower foot pegs and it made changing gear difficult.

The rear mounting eye is fine if made from 3mm plate. I am still using the original one of these. (6 or 7 years old) I had thinner plate on the back to start with and it cracked so I modified the design and thicken the plate to 3mm. No problems since.

I got the sidestand from Alistair and installed it yesterday. It's a very solid and substantial unit and reminds me of the Flanders aftermarket stands sold for the /2's. The rear mounting bracket appears to be about 4mm thick so shouldn't be a problem. It will take a bit of getting used to since it is not self retracting and deployement behind the footpeg is certainly different as well. The beefiness of this unit makes my Browns sidestand on my /6 look like a toothpick in comparison. This stand is ideal for a fully loaded bike as it's pretty much in the middle of the load center of the bike. No markings so I don't know who made it but I'll bet they could sell a bunch if the word got out. Thanks Alistair and everyone else for your help. Regards

Nice!

Probably wouldn't work with the Touratech pegs, or would it?

I have no idea. If the Touratechs use the same pivot/bracket as stock it should work. I still have no idea who the manufacturer was or when.
