An update. The new bracket arrived today (ordered last Wednesday) but regrettably will not fit the engine plate without drilling which I'm not prepared to do. Have now agreed with Norvil that I'll send them back the new bracket and leg. I've ordered the leg to suit the bracket that's fitted (whether it's right or wrong). The part no. is E2/1014. I would have done that to start with had not Norvil sown the seed that I had the wrong bracket fitted. Anyway, to be fair, they seem to be playing ball so hopefully the leg will arrive later this week and should be fitted before I set off for the Manx GP.

New stand arrived today (ordered last Monday).It was the correct one for the bracket but a bit loose on the lug so required a couple of shimming washers (actually one was a 2p piece drilled out!) Finally got the spring on with the small-coins-in-the-spiral method. All seems well. The bike does not fall over! Fitted my "patent" method for getting the stand to stick out a bit more at rest for ease of access. I fitted a jubilee clip round the leg at the same distance from the fulcrum as the lower engine bolt so that the clip screw impinges on the nut. So anyone with a '55 ES2 should check the stand and bracket before renewing as they do not match the plate in the parts manual. This was the cause of all my probs. Norvil have played ball so far but I'll have to wait to see what rebate I get. George

Great news George!

Perhaps you can have the webmaster change the title of this thread? Seems like this one wasn't their fault & they have been accommodating to resolve the issue?

A very fair point, Skip. I tried some time ago when I realised it wasn't quite as clear cut as I originally thought but got no response to my email. I openly apologise to Norvil for jumping to that conclusion but to be fair I had actually phoned them and asked if it would fit before I ordered it. George
