Anyone know if a 95 kdx 200 kickstand would fit on an 85 kdx 200? Or could someone measure the bolt spacing on the mounting bracket for a 95. THanks

On my 03 KDX (which might be the same as a 95??), the bolts are parallel to the swing arm and they are 1 1/4" from center to center.

Hope that helps-

Never had a problem with any of the OEM kick stands even during MX. On my CR, I had the MSR unit, no issues their either.

As long as you have a tight spring, you are good. If it is loose, then I could see some major issues.

They always get loose as they are unsprung weight with considerable leverage. Even worse they stick out waiting to get caught in a rut.

I took mine off my 2001 kdx-200 because the vibration or whatever the hell it was always made the bolts come loose, and I almost lost my stand a couple of times...So I took it off, and a friend gave me a triangle stand...Works way better.

Yeah, pain in the R’s out on the trail to have to drop the bike on the ground or find a tree to lean it against every time you want to open a gate or go for a pee.

The lift stand on the Justkdx site works well (assume you have seen it). The picture in the link in my first post shows my slightly ugly but effective copy. I lengthened the lever 10” (with a bit of angle) to ease lifting the thing

Aww ya painted it! Looks like you’ve bought it -rather than fashioned it with your bare hands!
