I made this rear stand for my Deus so it wouldn't roll over on it's side all the time when you set it down.
You know what I'm talking about !
This wider than factory stand really helps and it also keeps the back of the machine up out of the mud and snow.

Simple and inexpensive to make with a few things from the Hardware Store ...
(1) Cut a piece of 4" PVC pipe coupler or heavy schedule pipe to the desired width.
(2) Grind the bottom of the stand to the proper angle, so it sits flat on the ground.
(3) Line it up under the factory stand - drill two holes for the black nylon bolts you got at the Hardware Store.

Good Hunting !
