Blackbird kickstand

After changing to a 190/55 rear tire, my bike leaned and only required about 15-20 lbs of pressure pulling handlebars or seat towards side stand to make the back wheel hover off the ground. I modded a blackbird stand as others before me have done, and am happy with the result. Stand also sticks out a bit further, making a larger triangle between it and the two wheels. Because of this, it is much more stable. It doesnít sit flat on the surface like the stock one would, so Iíll see how it fairs with asphalt. It may require some heat and a bit of bending if itís a problem. Anyway, here are some pics, welded a spring tab made out of thin 1/8Ē strapping, with a notch for spring retention.

Thanx for posting this, I'm putting a 2x4 under mine right now, so looks like it would help me, what year(s) Blackbird? Did you use the Blackbird switch or move the RC one over?

I got a first year blackbird stand. The only part i used was the stand itself. I retained my original spring, switch, switch mounting bolt, stand bolt, and nut.
