Kick stand is a work of art. Tucks perfectly up behind the number plate. I was concerned about strength where it attaches to the chassis via the lower chain roller. I don't think you would want to lever the bike up on the kick stand but for normal use (just leaning the bike on it) seems more than sturdy enough. I would have given it 5 stars but the supplied tapered hex head long bolt that replaces the lower roller bolt has a very soft head. You basically end up distorting the hex head just to tighten it. I just hope I don't have to take it off or I"ll be looking for a hardened replacement bolt.
