This is not my idea. It comes from: http://www.klr650.net/forums/showthread.php?t=35749 But it appears that he has a machine shop and can weld. I don't and I can't. So, I was curious if I could make one with my tools and skills. First try was with JB weld, did not work. Second try I used a local welder who charged me $10 ...worked great! All of the parts I got at Lowes for under $10. I could have gotten it cheaper, but they were out of the shorter threaded rods so I had to get a longer one. Here are the parts: I cut the angle thing with a hacksaw. I cut off the bottom of the original kickstand. I then cut the rod at an angle that matched the foot of the original kickstand with the hack saw and ended up with this: I took all of this to a local welder and had the nut welded to the upper part of the kickstand and the flat metal thing welded to the angle side of the threaded bar. Like so: Screwed together it looked like this: I painted it... ...and put it back on my bike: The bottom nut is used as a lock and I also have a lock washer in there to make sure nothing vibrates off. It works perfectly! Again, this was NOT my idea. I just dumbed it down a little so that someone with access to a hacksaw, a Lowes, and a local welder can make one for less that $20.
