KapscoMoto

The required pin size is 27 mm.

I still have a full deck.
I just shuffle slower.

Note: I have no time to waste because Iím older at this moment than Iíve ever been before,
Ö and itís the youngest Iím ever going to get.

27 mm to inches is 1.06". None of my pins are that large in diameter.

To follow-up on the PB "Busa" stand, I posted in the other stand thread that it also won't work with a Gen 3 stock rear fender, but there's a work-around of rolling the rear tire onto a piece of wood about 1" thick: 2015 Rear Stands

That's right! Pin kit #2 needs to be ordered.

Thanks for reporting this Doug. I needed this info. Think I'll order the T-Rex rear stand.

The base of the pin is only .750" Are you saying the insert part of the pin is that much larger than the base? None in your photo look like that. (I have yet to pull off the grommet to check, btw)

I did not purchase these pins. I had a sleeve made by a machinist (because I did not know that these pins were available).
My suggestion would be for you to contact KapscoMoto. They will be able to tell you if the 27 mm pin would fit in your unit, or if another attachment is required.

When I first saw the posting, with the 18mm pin, I thought, not screwing with that. Then this posting, yup ,delivery was I think $5 Canadian to my door, extremely well made and the price is right, took me a bit to realize that the lower portion needs to move. It came with two pins and hitch pins, two bolts with self locking nuts, a set of pins , largest being for the MK-3 , 27mm and a retainer for the pin. All wrapped in protective foam.

You are most welcome!
It should prove to be quite useful.

I finally went and popped off the grommet (it is still winter, no hurry!). Holy buckets, that hole is huge! Thanks for posting this so I can get the proper pin before spring.
I wonder why the photo from their website shows the wrong pins. That is quite ridiculous. Makes me question what you really get when you order.

A small input on this topic... I asked Pit Bull directly about the rear stand they recommend for my 2016 Versys 650. Here is our conversation:

Question:
Hi, I have 2016 Kawasaki Versys 650 and I'm looking for a rear stand. Which model can you recommend for me?

Answer
You will need our Forward Handle Spooled Rear, part number F0043-000. You will also need 8mm spools if they are not already installed on your bike. Below is a link for the stand.

I haven't bought the stand yet... but thinking about it I use my car's jack to lift rear wheel

Those larger pins are on ebay for under $20. Same photo though. I ordered a set.

I then lean the bike to the left onto the side stand.

Much easier than trying to pick up the handle of the rear pit stand and balance the bike from behind.
I tried your technique, Big Aussie. Couldn't figure it out. But I solved the issue. I stand on the left with both hands on the handlebars (ready with using the front brake) kickstand has to be up (unfortunately), then use my right foot to pull the lever of the stand up. That worked rather nicely.

Thanks quexpress. I got the right pin now. But now I have 9 pins I will probably never use in the next 20 years. The Venom stand is good and very easy to use. Except just a tad too short but a couple hunks of wood solved that.
