Re: [rootsradicals] Simple way to make your Kickback quieter
I have been doing the same for 4 years. And today I finally replaced my first rubber feet with new ones. Good to know that others find the rubber feet useful too :)

I attached a rubber foot to the bottom of my Big Dummy frame using the stock kickstand mounting hole. The Kickback's stub "stop" now bangs into the rubber foot instead of the steel frame. This hasn't totally fixed the noises the kickback makes when riding, but it has really toned down the racket. I put a few posts on my blogger site:
Also thanks to the poster here who suggested using rubber 7/8" chair feet on the Kickback legs! They work great.
- That is a neat fix. However, I have never had the noise problem--or have never noticed at any rate. I may go out later with it to do some chain sawing and will listen for it.
- Well, I went out and listened and as far as I can tell my Kickback does not bounce audibly and never has. Maybe the elastic cable on mine is tighter?
My first kickback was very quiet. My current one not so much.
Even if you have no need for the sound dampening rubber stopper I highly recommend adding rubber feet to the ends of your kickback legs...makes it just a bit more stable and keeps the leg ends from getting worn with use.On Aug 9, 2013 4:49 AM, "David Dannenberg" <ddannenberg@...> wrote:
