that U tab is there for a reason,, stop, locate, push down sidestand..
what will be your method for controlling your sidestand
now that the tab has been 'cut off' [?]

also, side drops are predictable in the life of a motorcycle
esp for a novice rider, thus those parts likely to touch first
are designed to take side drops.. indicators are quiet solid
but rubber mounted for movement, sidestand tab bends up,
pegs, bar ends plus mirrors and side seat fairing panel
also protect main fairings, tank and seat..

scratches and rough fixes etc tell a story
sort of imprinted into the motorcycle..

I have no problem locating the side stand. I use my heal and push it down towards the back. Just because a motorcycle has been down, doesn't mean it has to be retired. Sure the bike has been down, but engine is runing strong and it rides well. I have had no isssues thus far after owning and riding it for 2 months....We will see in the next coming, like i said i will be upgrading to 600rr in the next year if not sooner.

not that its anything, but as it was raised,
that U tab was designed and manufactured
for a specific logical rational function..

the gear lever could also be located so as
to be moved with the heel,, which may
work, but would not be easiest or
most efficient, quickest or best..

reason being spring loaded sidestand
is designed to tucked up out of the way
when not in use.. thus not easy
to activate with a simple movement..

attitudes developed today
come with us into tomorrow
[and to 600rr]
just saying...
