    Double Kicked

    Got a stupid question... I was just wondering if there was a double kick available for my recently acquired V-Star 1100 2000

    Sorry for my vague discription
    ... And poor choice of words (it's probably Canadian thing) eh ? ... "my bad" ... What I was chasing is
    the availability of a double kickstand ...
    for easier cleaning and maintenance....to stabilize the bike while I wrench on it.

    Ah, makes sense. i have seen someone on youtube make a stand out of wood. it was a few 2"x6" boards screwed together aith a 2"x 4" screwed on the end. slide it under and pill on the 2x4. lifts the bike level. I dont think anyone makes a double kick stand for our bikes. ive seen universal ones though.

    OR you can build a steady stand / Front wheel chock. I think this is the best idea..

    There was no mention of a windshield in THIS message thread.

    I think what you are asking about is a "center stand".
    In general, bikes that don't come with one standard are really hard to fit with one.

    But don't give up without a fight. There might be one available for that model.
    If you haven't checked with a dealer yet that might be a good idea.

    A wheel stand might be an option too.
    Don't believe everything that you think.
