Can anyone give me any feed back on the new and redesigned Fish Kick Stand? When they first came out they stood the bike up more than I liked it to.

Just wondering if the new design is any better or worse?

Go for it. The bike leans on the Fish sidestand the same as stock (length is the same as stock). The footprint is at least 2-3 times that of the original. Works on all surfaces, hot ashpalt, soft grassy areas, etc.

And as an added benefit, it adds a nice touch of chrome. Looks good even if you're not into the "bling thing."

I bought a Fish from Hal awhile back. The gripe I have with it is the chrome plating is peeling. :evil: It does stand the bike up at the original height as Honda wanted it.

Another question on this product. Is this new updated fish compatable with the Kury floorboards? or is it in the way like the old style? Your pro's and con's please.

The new Fish side stand hit the bottom of my Kuryakyn floor boards. The stand can and will drag the pavement on a hard left turn because it can't fully retract. :shock: :oops: Oh, by the way, this was with the increased ride height provided by a full Traxxion suspension set up!

I replaced mine with a Kuryakyn side stand. The floor board still has to be lifted up to deploy the side stand.

Thanks for the info. Diavalos. i will make do with the original side stand. I am use to lifting the floor board with my left ankle. I put one of those extensions on , but i did not like that, i would snag my pant leg on it now & then. So i will wait & see what Kury will come up with later.

I got his ride off stand in chrome when he had them too.

Both are excellent items indeed.
