My brother got this for his '04 YZ250 and it is a very well built kickstand!. The only complaint have with it is that the "foot" is made of plastic. I can see that breaking easily. The bracket that attaches to the frame is a nice thick steel piece. Leg doesn't drop when jumped and stays put. Very satisfied!
Had one on my 07 crf250r. It would be ok for trail riding but If your jumping it will scratch up your swing arm. I had to take the scratches out of mine with light steel wool. Don't buy if your jumping, swing arm will hit.
You don't realize how awsome it is to have a kickstand on your bike until you get one !!! Is it waaaay more than you wanna spend for a kickstand? Yup...sure is. But man is it worth it when you can park it anywhere without finding a tree or axle stand. Starting a tall earlier 4 stroke can be a chore as most know but its soooo much easier being able to stand on the bike anywhere to start it. Fitment was perfect on my 98 YZ400f. The machined aluminum stand and cast mount are way better quality than the pics show, very impressed. Highly recommend !!!
When you order,make sure you get the kickstand designated for the "expert" model or it will be way too short. Unfortunatly I made that mistake. The fit and looks are excelent and it even comes with a trick stainless bolt and a red anodized collar for mounting. The only thing you'll have to buy separatly is a longer 8mm bolt for the lower left side sub-frame mount. It's a little pricy,but if you don't like doing burn-outs to dig a trench at your camp site or leaning your bike up against your truck,it's worth it.
The pre-owned 2005 Yamaha YZ250F that I recently, purchased has a ground to frame clearance of 10.5 inches; this 15.5 inch Trail Tech Kick Stand, (Trail Tech Kick Stand 54000WR - DK part #507664), was much, too, long for the YZ. I know that Trail Tech makes a 13.5 inch SuperMotard model, but I could only, find that model on Trail Tech's web site; (and this model would have also, been too, long); so I purchased this 15.5 inch model, here from DK. The seven eighths inch diameter, kick stand is 'beefier' than I expected, as the photos made it appear, to me, that it would be of a smaller diameter. The hardware included, (allowing it to be installed on a Suzuki, Kawasaki and the YZ), made it simple and easy to install, once I drilled a nine sixteenths inch hole, (to allow for the Kick Stand's Foot), deep enough to allow for my cutting off 4 inches of the aluminum, kick stand. It was a bit tough to remove and replace the foot inside the kick stand; it is a very, tight fit; and plastic foot appears to made of a very, durable, tough plastic. I have not used the kick stand out in the 'real world', yet, but I feel it will work well. I would recommend this Trail Tech Kick Stand. Do a bit of measuring before your purchase and be prepared that you might, just, have to modify the kick stand's length.
