Big Foot for side stand
« on: November 29, 2012, 08:44:36 AM »

I made a "big foot" for my 2012 DS side stand because I'm riding and parking a lot in the desert, which means soft sand quite often. I got tired of hoping the bike wouldn't fall over before I could find a rock to put under the stand.

I machined a recess (to fit around the existing foot) in an aluminum plate to prevent rotation, and drilled and tapped the center of the existing foot for an 8mm recessed bolt. See photo.
