center stand spring anchor points?

Postby cfaber » Sat Mar 16, 2019 5:39 am

Hey folks,

I'm wondering if anyone can point me to documentation, or just know about where the center stand is to be anchored? It seems obvious but apparently not enough for me to figure out. Also, is my confusion a result of a damaged spring on here or should the hook be bent inwards ?

and just for reference here is what I have:

Thanks!

Hi

The spring looks to be correct - the short hook in the first photo goes through a convenient hole in the RH rear engine plate.

I'd add an image but it looks like the server needs attention - I'm getting 'The uploaded file is empty' message - Image now added:

There is plenty of information on here advising how to fit the spring without losing your fingers - eg.

Mick's right. Once you have the right hand side engine plate in position, it becomes a lot more obvious. Also check out the spring thing. its not difficult when you know how to do it
