\"Suicide\" Sidestand

Anyone know if there is an easy fix/replacement for the "suicide" sidestand on my 996 SPS? I only got it in January and I wouldn't like to bet on it getting through the year without me dropping it - I really would feel better with a "normal" sidestand that stays put when I put it down.

yup LouigiMoto and Cornerspeed will both supply and fit the kit for not a lot of cash.

Thanks. Wish I'd thought and asked about it sooner - my bike was up at Louigi Moto for a service just a few weeks ago!

I think it's just a different bolt which you need, but give Louigi a call as he should know.

Wouldnt mind getting this mod for mine really. Although I am used to the flip up side stand now.
When I use my other bike, I remember what its like for a stand to stay down until "I" flick it up.

I actually quite like the flip up sidestand, find it quite strange riding a bike without it now... mind you, does make it hard getting off the paddock stand single handed!

All you need is the plate and nut off the later sidestands, the ones with the switch. Change them for the originals and you're sorted. Costs about a fiver and takes 10 minutes to do.

By suicide stand do you mean the modded one that stays down and flips you off the first left hander you come to

Seen it twice before including my mate on his 916 a couple of years ago and knackered his hip and does'nt ride any more and a shop that had a virtually new 996sps that someone took for a test ride with the same results....so not something i would do...best way to cope with the standard setup is get off the bike before trying to put it on the stand

I guess I'd want the engine to be killed automatically if you try to pull away with the sidestand down .... is there a fix for that?

Yes there is. You can wire it in with the netrual switch. There are kits you can buy to do this. Look on ebay and you should find.
