I'm looking at sorting the side stand, as its pants....so can anyone lead me towards a good replacement?

Also, what other stuff has been done? Anyone attempted HID yet as I notice lights are crap.!!

Thanks!

Found the sidestand, AF sell them in the US, so got one on order now.
Also ordered the Abba adapter and a R&G rad guard.  The bike is already covered in R&G stuff, clutch and gen covers, end weights, spidle bobbins and frame bobbins, also a tail tidy and clip on bar set......pretty impressed with previous owners, bike is in good fettle.
 
Had some fun on it tonight on way into work......its a beast for sure, had me smiling the whole way!  The Tiger 1050 before it was just a ride......the difference between a night out on the booze then picking up a fat lass, or picking up a fit girl from the gym who has energy'a'plenty.
 
Bonkers if you want it to be....its a great bike.

RSV or V4R?
 
RSV gen 2, stand isn't long enough.  Easy fix, weld a 10mm plate to the bottom of the stand, job done.
 
V4R the euro/UK side stand is too long, and very straight! On level ground you have to watch where you park it as a fart can blow it over....it gets much worse as the rear tyre wears too.  The US market has a different stand, that puts the contact further away from the bike and allows the bike more lean.

Mods currently under way during winter are

RSV4 upper injectors

In regards to lights, I fitted a pair of Philips H7 HID effect bulbs (Ill double check next week when I get home) but made a huge difference, even with light tinted protectors on they are very bright
