Hi Jerry, maybe your bike has too much lean when on side-stand. I park mine so it's almost vertical when I use the peg to climb on. The stand can be tweaked/bent to stand the bike up more.

The stand mounting is much stronger on the Brazil model I had previously, fixed to frame. My current one is a home market & mounted to the swing-arm, which itself has to be fairly strong. I have used the peg method of mounting for the past 8 years, since I bought it with no problem.


Current: 1958 Ariel 650 FH, 2014 Tiger Sport1050, 1995 XT225 Serow, 2016 Tiger 800 XRx.

I've done that side stand pirouette linked above a bunch of times turning the bike around in my garage, both on my 225 and the CBR600 I had before that.

A mechanic in Bezier, France, took hold of my ST955i, ran it down a steep slope into his shop, spun it round on side-stand & chucked it up his ramp, this while it was fully loaded with 100lbs of luggage for me & missus, inc camping kit in panniers, topbox & tankbag. It went in for a new chain kit, it was back outside in half an hour. He was no Silverback either.

With the 225, I pick back end up if I want to turn it around. I shall give the side-stand method a try.
