    I have one. Nice part.

    It actually doesn't relocate the side stand, it changes how its attached to the bike. That's a good thing because you don't have to worry about doing any rewiring.

    on my 950. It doesn't get in the way and its just as easy to use. I disconnected the side stand switch at the same time.

    I have it on my 950. Great part. Also, I have an early 2005 950 with has an extra gusset on the frame down in that nether region. I opted to cut the BDCW bracket rather than cut the gusset or return the part. The part is still holding up just fine even with the fairly extensive cut. BDCW offered to send the early 2005 part for my bike for free because of the issue, but I declined and offered to just run this part as a test until it broke. That was years ago. Great part. Great service.

    I picked up a 2012 990r this past weekend. I asked the dealer about the need to relocate the kickstand, such as using the Black Dog product. He said that on the recent model 990's the kickstand has already been relocated... but was not sure if it fixed the porblem 100%... Fact or fiction? I am leaning hard towards just doing it so I don't have to worry about it - but I am wondering if this is a current model issue or not... Anyone able to fill in the gaps for me? Thanks!

    Look at how it attaches to the bike if there is a small bolt towards the front of the bike that goes into the bottom of the engine case then the issue is still there cause that is where is breaks..

    Oh thanks everyone .

    I thought that there was also a bracket that actually relocated the stand to the foot peg mount ?

    I was looking at the braces but for some reason I was thinking that there was a kit to actually move it ?

    That was the pic I couldn't quite make out . I guess I know why .:1drink

    Someone did make something that actually moved the side stand but I don't recall if it was a bolt in or a weld on solution.

    If you have the side stand bracket, a good aftermarket skid plate and don't hammer the bike off road then that would pretty much take care of alleviating the problem.

    The one from CJ Designs appears to take it completely off the motor.

    I'm on my second BD relocation bracket from breaking tire beads while on the trail. I hear this one has extra reinforcement to keep that from happening so it's only my short list to replace it in the next few months.. I can't have a broke side stand mount just cause I got a flat on the trail.

    Sweet yea that's the one I found (cjdesigns) and couldn't make out the pic ! :thumb THANK YOU :D


    I'm just not sure which way to go now :hmmmmm. I was looking at the bike today and it seems that the brace would help to protect the oil lines too but then a good skid plate will to :hmmmmm. So meny farkels :lol3 .

    I do plan on off slab ridding as I did with the KLR I'm just wondering if I spend a lil less on the side stand and a lil more on the skid plate all would be good ?????? :type

    Anyone attempt to claim the busted case on your insurence ??????????

    Had one on my 2008 (BDCW) have one on order now for my 2011.

    The 2008 got punked in a street accident and the unit got bent - but the engine was fine! Proven!

    Who knew the damn street would be the culprit. (don't worry wasn't my fault).

    Good Skid plate 1st.
    Sidestand bracket 2nd

    IF you have to put an order on things.

    Honestly I have always been impressed with CJ's stuff.

    I try to help him out with product testing and fitment when ever he needs it.
    You cant go wrong with his setup.

    Have you seen what he did to his 950? Check it out, then decide what you want to do.

    CJ Designs is the best, takes out the engine scenario completely!!! Best design out there, IMHO!!! BDCW does make a good engine guard though...

    PABiker was the originator of that design I beleave. I got one from him for my SE in 09. Awsome design...LOOVE it:clap
    Only thing different I did to mine was to taper the top bolt hole and use the stock bolt , that way the bolt was recessed.


    Oh....and for no particular reason at all.. other than the Girls haven showed up for a while:D
