Rubber Stop for Stand
« on: September 05, 2012, 03:02:03 AM »
I read a test somewhere just after the Tex was released that suggested that the rubber stopper for (I think) the main stand was so loose that it was highly likely to fall off and that that aspect of the bike had not been thought through or designed particularly well. My question is whether anyone on the forum has noticed this and/or had problems with that piece of rubber and, if so, has anyone come up with a simple fix or safeguard of some kind?

It's rubber stop on the left side of center stand... I used silicone to glue it

I applied black Permatex RTV silicone sealant to mine the first day it was in my garage.  No problems since.
