Default Kickstand for Zuma

Is there a side-operated kickstand available for the Zuma? My wife can't get the bike up on the centerstand with any sort of regularity, and is getting frustrated that only I drive the scooter everywhere (because I can put it up on the stand no problem).

Any ideas?

Thanks!

Check out Jared's how to. I think he used one off of an R6. Where is Jared anyway?

Jered made a scooter so fast he disintegrated, and POOF, he was gone. We're all still disturbed by it.

How do those bolt on? Looks like there's a mounting boss of some sort and that's it. I don't have to weld anything onto my frame..do I? And will the centerstand have to come off? The c.s. is much more stable when parked in high winds (downtown Chicago) than a sidestand would be, as the scooter has a low CoG and it's not very heavy anyway, compared to a full-size motorcycle. I just don't want it to get all scratched up after it tips over!

Thanks for the PM. Yeah, she's girly. She's actually been able to put it up there once or twice, with little effort, but hasn't been able to replicate it. Somehow she struggles with it..it's always been easy for me.

should bolt right on.
and low center of gravity is actually your friend - more stable.
my only concern about your wife is w/ a sidestand, the rear wheel is going
be on the ground when she starts it and if the auto-choke was to rev it might get away from her.
don't want anyone getting hurt.
