This was not my idea, I shamelessly stole it from ADVrider.com forums. ( most likely the wunderfest megathread ). The 690 enduro kick stand is not particularly difficult to deploy, UNLESS you are a shorty like me and end up in situations that your right foot needs to go lower than usual. Parking on an small incline to the left for example. Suddenly things turn from manageable to damn annoying when you are trying to get the kick stand deployed with your pygmy foot. Usually what happens is, that I get the kick stand part of the way down and run out of leg length and the kick stand snaps back up.
The solution is a RAM ball mounted on the kick stand. With the ball mounted, your leg doesn't need to extend nearly as low/far to deploy the kick stand all the way down.This is the exact product I used, but there are probably other similar ones that work just as well.
