    1 1/8" Flat washer, 3" O.D. Galvanizing was ground off on welded side.







    7 square in. vs. less than 3 square in. Enough keep it from digging a hole to China.



    Early TW "crow's foot" kickstand on the right. Late-model "flatfoot" style has slightly smaller foot, but easier to weld. Longer XT600 stand that I use on my TW on the right. The offset is neccessary for swingarm clearance when in the "up" position.







    I can explain it to you, but I can't understand it for you.

    Powdercoated '87 frame, extended swingarm, YZ fork legs, ATV tire, 14/55, XT350 tank, spliced quick-release seat, disc brake conversion, beeg headlight, beeger rack, Lizrdcooler, Lizrdventz and bunch of other stuff all covered in invisible ink.

    Good idea! Simple, easy, effective and best of all cheap. I am going to do it.

    Actually I'd kinda like to see how others have solved the problem as well, short of throwing a glove under it.



    I've seen a few feet made from hockey pucks and such. Put 'em up, if you got 'em.

    When I finished up my suspension mods I needed to lengthen the k-stand and wanted more surface area as well. A short section of pipe and some flat stock. The washer is a neat idea as you can do all your welding around the hole on the under side.. Gerry



    Take care my Friend.........

    Hey in New Mexico, at least where I ride, we are never far from a flattened aluminum beer can. Why weld when my fellow citizens work diligently to scatter kickstand feet throughout the riding "outback". You will forgive me if I don't provide a photo of a squashed beer can won't you? Tom

    Extra points if you smash them on your forehead.
