Characterizing a Test Surface for Motorcycle Side Stand Retraction Performance Testing(STABILIZED Oct 2014)
This SAE Recommended Practice is intended for use only in characterizing test surfaces used in
motorcycle side stand retraction testing (SAE J1578). The equipment and procedure described in this
document yields repeatable results in characterizing test surfaces in a way found to be related to retraction performance. The test results obtained with this procedure do not necessarily correlate with measurements obtained with other friction measurement procedures which have been developed for other purposes.
