The sidestand on my 998 flexes a good bit. I checked the bolt holding it to the bike and it is torqued appropriately. But you can see the stand flex near the bend at the lower third of the stand when you first apply weight. Is this normal? :confused:

The dealer said the 749 side stands are notoriously weak because of the material used, soft aluminum, and said I should replace the stand. Any idea if there are aftermarkets available?

The stand is still flexing but no problems. I did see Desmotimes sells a billet replacement that is 1" longer for $150.00. I'm still on the fence though. But the key is to replace it the day before it breaks, not the day after;)
