boot for my side stand
« on: March 21, 2018, 09:49:47 PM »
i have recently bought a dolly mover so that i can turn my bike round in the garage mainly because we live on a steep hill and reversing the bike out is becoming a pain. I am looking at fitting a rubber boot to the side stand so that it does not slide so much when moving the bike on the dolly. Has anyone done this or have any suggestions.

many thanks

Why not just put some rubber matting or similar on the dolly?

Tinkering is what happens when you try something you dont quite know how to do, guided by whim, imagination, and curiosity.

Now that would be too easy and does not meet my tight criteria for desirable modifications. Surely you must have parked somewhere where a rubber foot on the side stand would be both useful and aesthetically pleasing.

A sidestand foot would increase stability and contact area with the rubber pad you've just glued to the dolly on Rtwo's advice  :028:

I've finally got round to fitting one (SW Motech) to the Explorer, I looked at getting a dolly as we have a steep drive, so I have to reverse in downhill between the Audi's, but there isn't enough width I the garage to swing a bike round in (deffo not the Explorer).
