View Full Version : xs650 kicker question

02-09-2011, 1:38 PM
I have seen a few 650s using the kicker as the kickstand. Is this just a matter or removing the spring and rotating it a bit on the spline? And if you remove the spring does it stay up when riding? Or is it a chopper ninja super secret trick not to be shared for a guys first build?

I'm curious about this too

I've used mine as a kickstand... Roll it all the way to the ground, lean the bike on it and pull the bike back. Should stay just fine. Puts a lot of unnecessary pressure on the kicker though.

I had to do it so I didn't have to carry a piece of wood around with me. Haha.
