Re: Side stand storage

No it is not. The issue with the side stand and smoking is how quickly you place it on the side stand after shutdown. Always hold the bike upright (or even a little to the right) after shutdown to allow oil to drain from the cylinders. Then place on the side stand. This will reduce smoking on the next start up.
Voyager and Anakin like this.
