TE Sidestand - Italian cheese?
« on: December 11, 2011, 01:17:49 pm »
Faark first ride and bike sidestand lierally buckles and bike falls over WTF? This thing is a fucking after thought - like they finished the bike and stood back and then thought 'shit we forgot the sidestand!' ... grabbed the nearest tube and a welder  ??? It is probably 1mm thick!!! Now what I want to know is are there alternative replacement or must I weld up something better myself?

Minutes before .... ?

Ja thats right (forgot all about that issue), the designers clearly wernt really interested in what happen when the bike was standing still  :biggrin:

Mine also broke, got it replaced under warranty but dont trust it to do anything other than hold the bike up.  I'm very careful not to put any sort of stress on it when getting on or off.

Most people reinforce theirs by adding some extra tube that fits around the existing tube in the key areas, while they are at it they also usually extend its length sightly so the bike doesnt constantly want to fall over when standing on uneven terrain

The 630 stand is much better (casr aluminium), but still too short apparently.

PS how did the bike go?  Are you happy with it?

When mine broke it looked almost exactly the same!

Apparently the 630 sidestand does fit,  I think Blazes got one for his 610.

PS glad you are happy.  They are great bikes, there's no denying it.

PPS Dont forget to replace those footpeg bolts to avoid any further unwelcome surprises  :mwink:

Same happened to mine on this year's quads 4 quads - got a TE630 sidestand, and all's fine now. Much better quality, but quite pricey: R1200

Ja just welded mine and strengthened the joint. Also saw the 630 was $91 on the AdvR site! I will probably extend the bottom a bit and do a 'big foot' while about it.
Will keep the R1200 for another farkle or two  :biggrin:

Looks like a design flaw, major stress raiser there, together with heat affected zone from welding 8) 
I got fired from my job last week, just because I asked "Smoking or Non-smoking" apparently it should be Burial or Cremation!

Bike is a beaut! See http://www.wilddog.za.net/forum/index.php?topic=85197.20

Needs unplugging though.

Wonder if the 630 stand would fit the 610? I could brace the the existing stand with another pice of tubing sleeved over but still a kaark piece of Italian cheese  :D  They should go look at KTM stands (I cannot believe I just said this)
Well not the enduro stands, 525 had one just as flimsy. Runner sells stainless steel ones, now that will last !

Ja I think I spoke out of turn as the orange brigade also claim theirs are kaark.

I am waiting for this stand off a TE 310 - longer than the 630 and hoping it will do the trick?

Clearly they were thinking of the application of Chainsaws when they designed that stand! So did you shout Timber when it fell?
