954 KICK STAND MOD...

I don't know if anyone else out there has some difficulty putting the kick stand down, either while still sitting on the bike, or while holding the bike from the side, but I always end up searching for that little ball on the end of that "feeler rod", and it always seems to be too far forward, etc, etc. So I added this little mod and it is soooooo much better. A simple 5/16 rod bought from the hardware store and welded between the base of the stand and the "feeler rod". Now my heel or toe goes straight to the stand and I can kick it down without having to search for it.

I think your motorcycle is too clean. You need to ride it more.

And then there's this asshole...
