    Cool US vs EU sidestand.

    Today I fitted a US spec. sidestand to my Factory. As with my Falco it turned a crappy unstable bike into a very stable park 'n forget bike.

    Just look at the difference!

    Fireblade stand

    Get the stand off a 2006/7 fireblade. Slips on at a fraction of the cost of the "genuine article" and works like a dream. Makes the bike really stable. If I'd known I would have taken the one off my 2007 blade before I sold it!
