Re: My first farkle
The solution is to increase the surface area of the side stand foot by adding to the inboard portion of it. This can be done by making a cardboard template and taping it to the side stand foot. Swing the stand up and trim the template to make sure nothing fouls under the bike or on the centre stand. Transfer the finished shape to a piece of 3 mm thick mild steel plate. Prep the existing foot and weld the plate on. Dress off and paint. Surface area increased, cornering clearance not compromised and side stand not damaged as a result. Or, just only ever park the bike on a paved surface.
