About Side Stand Spring
Make sure your motorcycle stays safely upright when parked by replacing the side stand spring when it looks bent or rusty. This spring is responsible for keeping tension in your kickstand whether it is up or down. Having a loose kickstand can cause your bike to tip over easily. Having your kickstand fall down when driving can also cause an accident. Side stands and kickstands are so similar in design that you can easily find a universal side stand spring for whatever motorcycle model you have. Top-rated eBay sellers have a variety of new springs to choose from, and many dealers offer free shipping on some items. For added protection against tipping, carry along a side stand pad for parking on dirt or grassy areas to make sure your stand has the firm grounding it needs.
