    Bent side stand

    I bent my stand and I'm not sure how much to bend it back.Can someone please post a picture of a non bent one in the up and down position or are they just a straight tube.

    They are straight. You need to take it off before attempting to re-bend it or you will ruin the attach structure. Tubing does not take to bending very well unless heated red hot. I would take it to a welder or just buy a new one.....or live with it.

    Do not sit on the bike with the side stand down, it will bend. It is strong enough to hold up the bike, butt not a fat butt also.

    I was trying to kick start it on concrete so it slid a bit and bent it.My fat ass jumping on it was too much for it.I don't have any O2 for my torches so I gave it to a friend that is a welder.

    I have seen them get bent by folks using them like an easy chair when parked.
