Keep That Spring - Trail Tips - Dirt Rider Magazine

Keep from losing that kickstand spring. They like to get ripped off in thick brush, by rocks and even from flailing legs, and finding them in the dirt can be a chore. Stop the problem with a simple wrap of some tough duct tape. Make a few loops around the spring taping it to the actual stand. It's best to do this with the stand in the up position; that way if the spring gets popped off its posts, the spring is usually just hanging there.
