I think I am not the only one who thinks the Panigale V4's kick stand is extremely awkward and hard to unfold. I usually do it by hand since I can't get to it with my foot intuitively.


How many of you have this issue too?


We just got the kick stand bobbins from Desmoworld and I really think these should have been supplied stock on the bike! >> https://www.panigalev4club.com/foru...-desmoworld-kick-stand-bobbins.html#post10932

mani, cool! We talked about this before. Def. need this.

As a reminder for track rats: These bobbins scrape at extreme lean angles. Just use the short version of this bobbin or take it off during the track day. :)

Travis yes, I feel your pain now!


We finally partnered up with Desmoworld as well so we will have a big supply of these available in USA.

Will you be getting the clear clutch covers etc as well? They are gorgeous! I have one if you need pics
The clutch covers we might be getting soon, not with this current shipment though. Ducabike is very popular seller and the original ones who made the clutch covers. We got a ton of Ducabike parts in stock.

899 owner here, occasional lurker. I've seen mentions about trouble getting the kickstand down.


assuming the v4 is similar, i have a game changing advanced move to enhance and change your lives.


use your toe

Nope you'll never get it w/ your toe... just have to get used to it for your heals; just use your hands if you're wearing track boots... the heal protections on the boots make it darn near impossible w/o scraping up your fairings. But with regular boots it just takes some getting used to; but a longer screw/pin definitely helps.

Practice Makes Perfect

I practiced putting the stand down when parked in my garage where no-one could see me. Got the hang of it in the end by leaning over to see as much as I can and putting my toe in at an acute angle just ahead of the gear lever. Crazy but it works!!

This is how I unfold the side stand;
If you look straight down the left side of the tank you will notice on the inside of the lower fairing two studs that are part of the fairing on the inside (Think it holds heat shielding) anyway using your heel line up with these with the back of your boot just off the lower fairing toes facing out.
Bring your boot down just as said just off the fairing in line with those studs 9-10 times you will pick up the side stand pin and bingo down she'll come and you wont look like a mangy dog scratching for fleas trying to get it down like before.
Have a practice in your shed till you get the exact height and position, works for me.....

I've just fitted the Motomillion side stand bobbin and it works very well. I used the longer extension.
A cheap and easy option is to cut a piece of radiator hose and push it on.
