XS11 Kick Stand Puck?
 
I was wondering what others use for a kick stand puck when one is needed? I had used a pickle jar lid until I lost it.

I think it would be cool to have a XS11 logo puck to carry on the bike.

I use a cover plate for a 4 by4 electrical box, tied to a string. I pull it up and slip it into the side pocket of the tank bag, or the left fairing pocket if it is a 'round the town trip with no tank bag. If your bike is naked, you're SOL.:p

I had just removed my Windjammer and installed a windshield so I'm SOL.

Anyway, I like your idea as it would be much sturdier than a pickle jar lid. I'm looking for bags for my bike so I could carry much needed items and tools.

I have used a squashed soda can. I flatten the can in an upright position so the tab is there to tie my string to. It is the easiest puck to be found at a moments notice.

I just use the nearest rock, stick, or piece of trash I can find.

Crushed beer cans work good. :rolleyes:

I use a plastic one with ads tied on a string in my fairing pocket. I like the outlet box cover idea with a rare earth magnet epoxied to inside bottom corner of windshield if it extends down at all.

I have a few of the plastic ones I will bring to the SE Rally. I try to keep a few of them in the bike just incase someone needs one.

I use a plastic one that Steppenwolf gave me years ago. Still does the job.
