I bent up a piece of 3/16 rod and welded to my side stand, sort of guessed on the size but just made sure it was long enough to give good clearance and a comfortable feel during use. There ought to be some little nubbins left on yours to show the attachment location.

Welcome to the forum! Add a signature line (just simple text is fine) so we know exactly what year/model/variant you have.



And yes it's true, almost 24x7x365 support here and more collected knowledge than you'd believe.

We all of course sleep or are out riding on occasion so it might take an hour or so to get a response but somebody will get back to your post in short order. Don't forget to check out the "pinned" posts at the top, a ton of good info in there.
