Hmm. I think of motion sensor and an electric motor ;-).

If pure mechanical setup is needed, why not have a mechanical sensor and a spring to pull the side stand up? 😡

Geez!

Geez!
that is too complicated .......and also doesnot work good(practically tested)........i thought of another idea........could some one say if it is feasible or any modifications

let us remove the present setup......ok now we replace the single material stand as two parts stand .......one is a fixed with a key way for the another part to extand and retract.....

we basically use a hydraulic cylinder piston with a spring return mechanism......

1.if we press a button we make the second part of the stand to retract slowly by connecting it to a cylinder and when fluid fills in,,the stand will retract slowly and the second part will be housed in the first part ...safely...

2.if we press the same next button .....the spring return mechanism will make the stand to extend suddenly and the motor cycle can be clamped safely ......


this is my ultimate idea .......i welcome suggestions!!!!!!!!!!😁
@Kaustubh Katdare • 17 Dec, 2008 There you go. Always post your own ideas first and request for comments 😀 Good going.
@kula • 17 Dec, 2008 is it good or is there any modifications i can do!!!!!!!!!!!
@gohm • 21 Dec, 2008 Yeah hydraulic stands (usually center stand) have been used previously by some manufactures. I still prefer the foot meathod for side stands, nice and simple. They usually have a cut out switch connected to the starter.
@flash319 • 21 Dec, 2008 How about you put a switch on the stand so that you can't start the bike unless you have the stand up.........................mmmmmm 😉
@gohm • 21 Dec, 2008 laugh, yeah good idea, too bad they already have that.
@flash319 • 21 Dec, 2008 That was my point. Most bikes do.
@navderm • 26 Dec, 2008 hie.

I like the idea since it's new and not used as yet. (as far as I know)
Though i think the functions of the hydraulic actuator and the springs should be opposite of what they are.

I think the numatic actuator (hydraulic) will work best when pushing the rod to make the motorcycle stand. that is to extend the stand.
When the stand is to be retracted back, you reverse the hydraulic actuator and the spring does the work automatically.

keep the spring in unloaded condition when the stand is no on (when the extension has not been done)
i things its a good idea. atleast you should give i a try.

if we add a lock to the gear peddle which is connected to the side stand
@gohm • 17 Feb, 2009 Honda goldwing's have hydraulic/electric stands
@Ashraf HZ • 18 Feb, 2009 I think 12V electric motors would be easier to implement than hydraulic ones, like biggie suggested. Apply current on one direction, you raise the stand. Apply current the other way, you lower it.

Easy as pie 😛
@gohm • 18 Feb, 2009 true as well. Although they are used on heavy 2 wheeled vehicles and the hydraulics allows them to adjust. these systems will add weight and create extra drain on the battery which most motorcycle electrical systems are close to full capacity with weak alternators. This is why most motorcycles use manual side stands. Less to break as well.
@maxz • 18 Feb, 2009 Why not just using back the stand and add up with the hydraulic to the back of the stand. as the stand flip up, the motorcycle can operate. With the help of the fluid on the hydraulic, and some electronic device, the hydraulic operates like going down to the stance of paking or moving up with the driver is ready to go.
@Tkelly • 09 Mar, 2009 Fit a micro limit switch at the side stand & indication on dash board.
That means unless side stand is removed , indication will not get off.

Its already there.
@Saandeep Sreerambatla • 09 Mar, 2009 The idea from biggie is good.

If we implement in this way say when we start the bike the stand should get automatically closed and when we stop it ,stand should automatically get ON.
😎😎
@ShrinkDWorld • 09 Mar, 2009 yaa,,,, Hadrulic stand is good idea.
also we can use swich to remove it.
just like in"Ambetion". It never start when stand is opan...
@zorif • 10 Jun, 2009 good idea of looping the start swicth they the stand switch.
its all about stopping the vehiclle from moving wire the ignition is ON.
i solved this problem by placing a very small limit switch on my stand.and wired this switch to a ultra bright LED.the LED is so bright,u will get irriate and will forced to close the stand.
its been working since 2 years on my SHINE.and very had any problem.
@jhbalaji • 25 Jul, 2009 Just use Sensor [Time Sensors etc], Motor and Switch
@sangeethsreeni • 19 Oct, 2009 Hai friends.
there is a purely mechanical system which is simple, works without any sensors..
My friend neeraj and me developed the system.
if interested go through the link..

The Hindu : Kerala / Thrissur News : Students develop side-stand retractor

The existing pin on the side stand bracket is changed to a new position such that always the stand retracts back to upright postion. Then additional fittings are provided for restrict the motion which is operated by the clutch......
@prashyraj • 13 Mar, 2011 Not to be rude or something, just asking for the benefit of the doubt.

Actually i was searching through my college library (where they have the previously completed records of projects) I happen to see the same system as you are mentioning to be completed by my seniors in 2006 itself.

The system they have used is that they have another spring attached to a sliding block which slides through a small cross-guide as in lathe.The sliding block is in turn connected to a wire which is operated by the clutch.
@Farjand • 13 Mar, 2011 @Kula : Have you ever seen the braking systems of a cycle? Use the same mechanism. Only try to connect the wire with your stand so whenever you press that lever you can operate the stand. .I did it once, when there was a competition.However I found it very cheap.But why to use such mechanism? If you can easily put your stand off and drive safely?
As you said we can also use spring mechanism!
@ramaseenu • 19 Mar, 2011 the side stand may be connected with a small rubber wheel at bottom end ,like that in rotating wheel chair .When vehicle starts running, with side stand it will not drag on road making wheel roll reducing friction.A pressure sensor attached may give sound through speaker to warn rider.He will manually release side stand.how z that?
