Mytech's side stand plate is designed to provide a larger footprint and greater stability for the foot of the side stand which comes kind of small in standard version. As some of us has experienced, us included, the bike side stand will either sink when pared in loose terrain or worth the stand will just give way all inside the soil and the bike will sit, not nicely, on its side. Hence you do need a foot enlarger for your side stand. This MyTech piece is not complicated and not plastic!! it is made of 3 mm thick aluminum laser cut, brushed and machined not to cause scratches or damage to your original side stand. Hand made in Italy. Including all parts required for installation.ADD COLORS: available in four colors: blue, red, silver/gray and blackPlease specify your model and year to send you the right part !
