    Re: Broke SIDE STAND!!!!

    Kick stand is on back order from JAPAN, December is the expected delivery MONTH...

    Well, I cleaned it up, "slugged it" and a couple of passes with the welder, (grind re-weld, spread the load some).

    Welded it hot, burned thru parts of the stand (intentional) to make sure the slug was NOW part of the stand.

    Goes on tomorrow for testing, (tie down's to the garage roof rafter to the handle bar-as a "safety net"-should it not hold, then full weight on it)

    Some pic's:

    An old axle cut down to about 3" (solid slug) and installed inside the top of the stand:

    All parts assembled, with a magnet, ready for welding (welds shown are factory-just prepped):

    Partially welded, burned all the way thru intentionally to make the slug functional (part of the stand-extra strength).

    Fully welded, weld extends way beyond stock, smoothed out and painted:
