    The USA side stand is probably the first stock item into the dumpster for most Caponord owners. Replace it with the Euro stand. Available through Aprilia dealers.

    Clarification, if needed: The "Euro" one is arrow-straight. The one fitted to USA models was, inexplicably, in the shape of a dogleg.
