It's the vertically challenged fat arses that stand on the pegs to get on and off, thus bending the stand.


Egg zactly!  No, never mind about vertically challenged, or fat arse, I would just never even think of mounting a bike with my weight on the footpeg while the bike is on the side stand.
Anyone who does so deserves the damage they cause.

It's called mechanical sympathy.
Have seen lots of people do this on XR650R's (mount and kick) with no problems at all. And they were not light weight  :biggrin:

Heading is a bit misleading. I thought BMW had a change of mind and recalled the whole bike, FULL REFUND! :imaposer:

:biggrin: Anyone ever seen me out and about on my X Challenge? I won't climb on the footpeg, because the instinctive mechanical sympathy I've mentioned just won't let me do it.

But I've given a lot of people a good giggle watching me make repeated attempts before I finally manage to throw my leg over!  :lol8:

Come on Dan, it is the best bike Harry has ever ridden! Now you are slating it, so out of character!

Keep in mind Harry never said it was the best bike he ever put on a side stand!   >:D

Harry 'Pot err' probably just used his wand to mount the scooter so no pressure on the side stand (that is if he actually rode it other than in his fantasies).  :peepwall:

PS. Fuck sidestands - most are an after thought and crap - had failures on all sorts of bikes over the years! This even with care - and I agree with jb regarding mechanical sympathy and do not mount the bikes like some Sidestandbroke Mountain cowboy  :imaposer:

Ja major fuckup and such a common R&D mistake on so many bikes ...  ::)  As I said - why are sidestands the last thing to get attention and often an after thought!?

The sidestand on the Dakars were an afterthought of note. They attached it to the thinnest pipe on the frame. In heavy wind standing on the sidestand one could see the bike rocking. :o

KTM 950's bolted to the Engine casing, a good smack and you have lost an engine case, R1200GS's were worse those sump mounted bash plates, there would have been less issues without the bashplate.  :sip:

Of the three bikes I ride at present all have had suspect sidestands. Husky TE610 - made of spaghetti and failed on my first ride, replaced with an alu one from the later 630  ... has also failed. BMW G450X - worse than spaghetti, I re-manufactured it with thicker wall stainless but still does not elicit confidence. BMW HP2 - stand fine but the original OEM alu hinge bracket needs replacing with a later steel one, otherwise bends. 

The only redeeming factor is that one can claim to have had sidestand tip-overs  :imaposer:
