Not from Ipswich but will be spending a fair amount of time there soon. 

Know several down that way if you want posting in the direction of decent bike meets

I spotted a US Gen1 stand on ebay the other day, check it out. It wasn't cheap mind about £100 I think but by the time you pay carriage from the US then the import duty and vat you will be paying around that, which is probably why people try to recover that money when they sell them.

Gents!

What is everyone saying about this


i have been looking for a rsv mille kickstand on ebay.com and the only one on there is battered,
a few gents on here have said a blade stand will fit and its worth the punt at 30 quid - let me know your best guess on this one gents and il buy it.

I'm not sure if it's the correct year but someone else will surely know. I know I harp on about it but try to find a decent US one as being original OE Aprilia it eliminates any potential insurance issues and is made for the job using the existing side stand switch.

Did you not find that US one I mentioned the other day, I will have a look and post it here if I find it.

Another reason for using the genuine US issue stand is the far stronger three bolt mounting bracket which none of the other makes use.

Sometimes people with knowledge make recommendations for a reason Wink

Apart from the pre 2000 (i.e. 98 & 99 MY) which still had 2bolt fixing even in the US due to the slightly different frame configuration in this area compared with the later years (Presumably to accomodate the stand change). However the US 2 bolt fixing (At least some of them) had a double shear set-up with bracket fixing on the inside as well as the outside. You might be able to tell that I have looked into this quite extensively!  Wink

il be honest with you, i don't fancy paying near 150 quid for a kickstand, the only US one i can find on ebay looks knackered.

and also if one was readily available i would definitely go for an OE aprilia product, but they seem to be quite rare.
