kickstand failure

**** thing tried to fall over on me --get out of work, crank it up so she'll warm up for a minute, unlockin the cable from the fencepost to my luggage rack, and it creeps forward a little bit and tries to go down--- no no no you dont caught it with my knees grabbed it by the bars and said nope you are not goin down backpack fell off the seat with my .25 in it good thing it was well packed no fallouts just a little scare so tryin to make a long story short im lookin for the posts from the past or threads about the kickstand mods and the pulley disasters and the fuel pump recall i read acouple months ago but cant locate em thanks madmike street 500 355 miles

so far i've noticed that if the bike is free to roll forward (not locked to the left) , it will undo the jiffy stand by itself. when i get enough funds, i plan to invest in the H-D center stand. unlike stateside, here in Philippines, a parked motorcycle isn't safe from bystander molestation nor the lot attendants playing parking tetris

I don't know where you parked. In the past, I have had the Asphalt (Summertime) soften. And the bike sank in. Or sometimes the Side Stand left holes in it.

I put the center stand on mine and I love it. I use it pretty much anytime the parking spot is mostly flat. It feels really stable on the CS. I don't really trust the center stand on slopes though so use the jiffy stand in those situations.
