    Kickstand mod#2

    Read the kickstand mod by another member using a door knob of sorts...thought it was a great idea. Didn't think much about it for awhile until I ran into a rain storm, my boot was slick, and I couldn't get the kickstand down. Ergo...I did a slight mod to the kickstand using a bullet type knob (one can get them on-line for $5). I used a flat head bolt to hold it on.

    Looks good! Tried to make one of the kickstand knobs and didn't tighten it up correctly....ended up without the knob when I stopped. Haven't made replacing it a priority yet.

    You should countersink the hole and use a beveled screw so the concrete doesn't wear the head of and the knob falls out. I lost one that way.

    Ok, This may be dumb but, what do you do with the bike while working on the kickstand. I love the idea and want to do this to mine.

    I put mine on the jack but I guess you could have someone hold it if you study it and work fast.

    Maybe while working on it do to my kids what they did to me with thier bicycles.
    Lean it against one of thier cars.
