Vstar 650 and the Harbor Freight Bike Dolly!

Took a couple of hours to assemble this thing. Looks good. One major flaw, my kick stand doesn't land in the tray! I over shoot it by a couple of inches. Anyone have a good remedy for this or am I returning it?

Any ideas, outside of using an arc welder?

Anyone with a 2014 650 Custom that made this fit?

Um, can you maybe weld on an extension to the tray? I'm no welder, yet I'm thinking it could possibly be done short of returning it. Just a thought there.

that was my thought. 2x6 bolted to the tray. Could even add a little cradle for the kick stand foot.
