Hi, can anyone tell me where to locate the centre stand spring on a mark one stand please?
Must be obvious but I'm having a senior moment.
It is located in the engine plate and in the center bar that crosses between the two legs of the stand, my new one did not have the drilling for the spring, I had to drill it myself and from memory the hole is not in the middle of the center bar.
If you are stuck I can measure mine for you.
Where on the engine plate does it locate?
Assume you are sitting on the bike.
The spring is mounted on the inside of the left hand engine plate. You will see a small hole just above the bolt that holds the stand in place.
There should be a hole in the front of the cross bar on the stand with the stand in the down position approx 25mm in from the right hand stand strengthening support.
That's where mine are and it works fine, if you need pictures give me a phone number and I will WhatsApp them to you, as took hundreds when I did a rebuild.
Great, thanks John I will look for that hole.
Thanks again Keith.
Nice one Tony that shows it clearly.
Thanks John and Tony, I have the earlier one.
When I reversed the fixing bolts it became obvious.
