Light-weight Side-stand foot

I know, I know. Everyone has a larger sidestand foot. I kept mine lightweight by forming sheet metal (like the factory foot) and adding ribs for strength.

The top looks factory (though there might be a paint-matching problem ).


The bottom has the ribs I mentioned. Yea, the ribs aren't placed optimally.

Look! The spring is in focus! And that rock is sharp too!

I enlarged it last winter, and EVERY ride from home starts with this parked on gravel and ends with it parked on gravel. It seems strong enough and it weighs a bit more than the bolts on some bolt-on extensions.

Well played, Ginnin!

If you are referring to super bright leds.com, they have the small wedge led bulbs to replace your instrument light bulbs and tail/stop light led bulb to free up watts.
Or any other led you might want for something.

Just put those on my '08 and '06 KLRs. WAY better than the stockers, esp. on the '08. Part Number you want is WLED-W4-90. $2.59 each. While you're at it, get 2 of the WLED-G4-90 (same bulb, but green) to do your Neutral and Turn Signal indicators. I chose not to get one for the highbeam since I have only ridden at night maybe twice so never use it. If you get one be sure to choose blue. You want the same color bulb as the lense it's going through.

They work great and will last forever.

I would caution AGAINST getting one for your tail/brake lamp though. For whatever reason it's not as bright as the stock bulb, even the brightest one they have. Also the difference between the tail and brake illumination level is pretty minor, can't really tell. Better to leave that a regular incandescent bulb, IMHO.
