T7 Heavy-Duty Side Stand Return Spring

T7 Heavy-Duty Side Stand Return Spring

$12.00 USD

The T7's OEM side stand return spring is a bit on the weak side and has a tough time holding up the side stand. This is especially true over rough terrain. If the side stand is allowed to swing down, even a couple of inches, the side stand safety switch will kill the engine. You're riding down a desert two-track and you hit a drip in the trail and your bike dies... way less than ideal.

Our heavy-duty side stand return spring has nearly DOUBLE (95% more) the spring rate of the OEM spring. Originally designed for (and included with) our Camel Toe side stand, the spring is available on its own as an upgrade for your bike's lackluster OEM spring.

Bomber as usual

Side stand doesn't flop around anymore and I like that.

Awesome little upgrade!

Best $12 I ever spent! Much better spring than OEM one.

This is the spring the Tenere should have come with.
Works... no more floppy side stand.
Super easy install.


Wow what an upgrade from the standard spring. When you unpack this you wonder if it’s for the right bike as it’s so much bigger

Works as advertised.

Works as advertised. To install, I laid the bike down on its right side, and used electrical tape-wrapped channel-locks to pull the spring over the stud it needed to go over.

With a normally-functioning leg, the stock kickstand is still easy to get down. If you can stand up while riding, it's easy.

Ironically, on the rally I installed this for, I tweaked my MCL in my left knee. This, quite hilariously in a comedy of errors sort of way, greatly diminished my leg strength in basically only one direction: that needed to push a kickstand down while on a bike. That made using this a chore, and I cursed myself several times for installing it. This, of course, is a one-in-a-million sort of thing, that has no bearing over the normal design and function of this product.
