Side stand
« on: 30 July, 2020, 08:09:31 PM »



Theres a lot of play on my stand and I thought maybe the bolt hole had gone oval shaped, but then I noticed it looks like the stand has worn away at the top. The bike leans over quite far and I think this is why. Any ideas or is this a case of just replacing the leg?

It should be possible to press-fit a flanged steel bush into that hole and then machine the leg to suit.

Or you can file out the slot and add in a brass or copper washer... I've done it a few times and it lasts the life of the bike if done carefully.

I did similar to ZT on my old '95 Serow when the sidestand got a tad sloppy. I used a thin stainless steel washer, fitted in there just nice. Works fine. Keep it well greased.

edit: fit the washer in the top side to reduce the lean.

Look like the end has splayed the ends?
If so, maybe worth taking off and sticking in a vice and closing it up....carefully

Thank you for the replies guys. Im going to try and file down the inside of it to try and make it level then pack it out with a washer. Has this happened because its a soft metal? That leg is holding up quite a bit of weight on that point.

Could be caused by my method of climbing onboard by standing on the left foot-peg with the bike on the sidestand, more so when I have luggage fitted.

Yeah thats how I would get on the bike especially with the side cases on, but I wouldnt attempt it at the moment.
