The sporty size of the side stand base can lead to stress - the stand can quickly disappear in hot asphalt, causing your ST to crash to the ground. This can be expensive. Our designer has reproduced the machines sportiness in a flowing shape and created a unique extension for the side stand base. Actually, its almost a shame to screw it to a motorbike. Attached with a stainless steel ring, the extension is securely fixed to the side stand to provide a safe upright position on any ground.
