    Sidestand Extender for easier foot operation.

    Anyone fitted one? did it make it easier to put the stand down? Did it look ok? I have to use the toe of my boot and its a faff.

    They work - if you get the right type.

    Actually, make one - 4mm aluminium.

    I got the genuine Harley s/stand extender, it needed a hole drilling in the tip of s/stand and looked shit so I didn`t fit it. I managed to get a s/stand from a 2007 Harley Sportster but that didn`t work as the lockout tab is completely different. Not a lot of use to you but I hope it saves you falling down the same hole as me

    I would make one, I did fitting many years ago but I live in an apartment, no garage, no shed, no vise - poor me.

    What type, make is the one pictured?, is it the HD one?

    Nope it isn't an HD one - its a 'Gettin'onabit special' (in other words I made it). It is on a 2007 Low.

    I also made a spare without any holes in it in case the one that is fitted got broken.

    I may still have the 'pattern' handy so you could copy it, if you wanted to male one.

    The bit that needs the most care is the bending.

    I have this. I doesn't increase the length but it makes it easier to grip with the sole of the boot.

    Quite a lot of money for a bit of bent steel, though Davie.

    I didn't ask - I made my own after looking at what I needed.

    What I wanted was one I could get at with my boot without feeling for it and scuffing the brake reservoir and lower brake hoses.

    In fact to be certain I didn't scuff them, I also made an aluminium plate which covers the hoses and is held on by the two unused screws which are in fact used for the California emissions filter (not fitted on the UK models).
