Sidestand extender/ Kickstand extension

Hi, looking for some sidestand extender or whatever you call them. New ones are way to expensive for two pieces of metal.

Best regards
Anton

Thanks, That or a crushed soda can works but I want to have something that's attached to the stand.

Well, sw motechs is 79 euros / 67  gbp with shipping, that seems quite a bit of money. Like money I could to other fun things with, and I see some used ones being sold here.

That's 49gbp including shipping to Sweden, and then it's import duties and taxes on that, I think 25%.  :191:

Various cheapy ones available on Ali Express - around 5-6. Are they any good? Who knows, but at that price it's worth a punt.

Years ago one of the bike magazines had a free give-a-way of a plastic bike shaped side stand puck. Still have it at home. Attached a length of string so that could be tied to handlebar as a reminder.
