"BMW HP2 - stand fine but the original OEM alu hinge bracket needs replacing with a later steel one, otherwise bends. "

You altered the power to weight ratio on your HP2?
Blasphemy! A real biker will never do that! :pot:

Some pics of broken side stands!

I have really tried my best, in the face of serious blasphemy of my lily-white character and tender soul, to inform people that this bike would be just cheap.

It seems to be even worse.

BMW motorrad is in a seriously strong position and will recover from the 310 regardless of how crap it is.

Just look at the crf450l thread. Lots of Honda fans pucking around, but most people saying they first will sit it out to see how it fares in the real world.

It will fare really well, when the Japanese release a bike it sells unchanged for 20 years only with bold new graphics updates. Case in point  :deal:

Ja nee, the Japs still squeezing  money out of the dr650.
 Simple and reliable.
Unfortunately the dr was thrown out of ZA, because we do not want a single cylinder with too high emissions.
You may however drive a 6.2 litre V8 AMG, you may demand free land and services, kill rape and burn down  if you are unhappy.

How come the Chinese bikes with zero emission control, that still run carburetors, can be sold in ZAR,  but not the Japanese singles?  Is it a case of the importers of the Jap bikes just not caring? It seems the only Jap ADV bike you can currently buy new in the 650 class is the Vstrom?

Maybe if Cyril was to go and kiss some Japanese arses like he does with the Chinese, and get them to invest in/exploit the country to the same extent, then maybe the DR's and similar bikes might suddenly get the nod again?

You mean it was first launched already advanced in age?   :lol8:

I am sure that the DR, for instance, was pulled from ou rmarket because it is a single, or because it is carburetted.  It was more a case of the emissions not within acceptable limits, while these smaller Chines / Indian and Japanese bikes still come in below a certain level.

About climbing on the bike while on the side stand. I'm 177cm, weigh 95kg, and ride an 1190.
With boots and kit on, there's a pretty good chance I'm going to tear my seat or scratch my bike trying to get my leg over it.
Especially after a few hours of playing in the dirt. So I stand on the footpeg.
I did it with my 800GS, and with the 1200GS, and never had issues.

On a smaller bike, I'd understand being a little concerned about a flimsy side stand, but of the 3 bikes I mentioned, there was no problem using it like that.

Before that I rode superbikes. If you can't get onto on of those without using the sidestand, you should consider joining the circus.  :peepwall:

So what is to be expected - made in India. Rather buy a Royal Enfield. No beating about the bush there. You know what you pay for and you get what you paid for.
