I have a question related to my latest garage incident. 2007 GT question. The only two times I have dumped my bike is in my own darn garage! I need to weld my center stand but unsure if it's safe to weld it while mounted to the bike with battery terminals off, or should I remove it? the centerstand foot leverage pipe/tube literally snapped in half while I was pressing down with my foot on it . When it snapped, I lost balance,,and the bke sank, with my assistance, to the ground on the starboard side. No damage other than my pride.
Anybody have an idea?
