    1995 DB2 suicide stand

    Does anyone have a source to eliminate the suicicde stand on these bikes, or do I have to be creative? I was hoping maybe a mid 90's 900 ss or something like that might fit

    by suicide stand do you mean that it pops up automatically?

    If so, the SXV had/has one and many people just ground off the pivot point that gave it the leverage and it was that easy.

    Yes Sir, I had a 1999 900 SS that I did that on, but this one is designed in such a way that it wont work like that.. Thanks for the reply tho. I know this isn't a "Bimota" forum, but the guys here have always been helpful. I have an '03 Tuono with 60K on it that has only left me stranded twice. Once the battery shorted out internally in Ohio, and the other time was about 5 miles from my home when the starter solenoid failed.......440.00 FIX Love my T

    Stranded? I would think you could bump start it no?
    What the hell does "ride it like you stole it" actually mean?
