Hi everyone,

A good friend of mine, who happens to be an aeronautical engineer, has agreed to build an aluminum kickstand and lighter mounting bracket for my WRR (we're also going to modify the stock subframe to cut unnecessary weight). Seeing as no one currently offers an aluminum kickstand and/or lightweight mount for our bikes, would anyone else be interested in such a product? If so, please speak up and I will see about putting together some sort of group buy.

sounds interesting if given a projected price range... it'd be cool if it had a little height adjustability via foot or something, to make up for the large range of tires and lowering links, etc.

And maybe gauge interest from the major WRR/X vendors. Best of luck!

lurk be careful with the stress at and near the kickstand pivot. I put a hybrid unit ...6061 t6 aluminum pipe with a exterior steel tube sheath {for the first 4 " from the pivot} on a klr650 and used an aluminum engine piston  for the foot .

Unless your friend also rides remind him that many go touring /camping with bikes ...the unit could be asked to support a considerable heavier weight.

Best of luck with the build.. looking forward to seeing the end product.

So about 2 lbs lighter? Looks really nice by the way. I might be interested in a stock length blue one depending on price.

Looks Great! WOW

How about posting up the material that the spring connection spigot is made of? {not aluminum i hope}
as its function and rooted connection is almost more important than the kick stand pivot bolt . {ie needs to be strong so the kick stand doesn't flop down on a slab ride / turn from a dis connected spring}

material used is al7n01, its strong enough and light.

I am sorry, if price is a concern then i can tell you it was hellishly expensive. then plus the shipping from japan.
but if price is of no concern then blue could be done or any color

if you are interested please pm directly.
