Test Procedure for Parking Stability of Motorcycles
Side stands and center stands are designed to support stationary two wheel motorcycles. This SAE Recommended Practice establishes procedures for determining parking surface loading and stability limits as follows: a. The footprint pressure exerted on a horizontal parking surface by the stand, b. The tilt angle of the parking surface at which tip-over occurs, and c. the tilt angle of the parking surface at which roll-off occurs.
