K1100LT centre stand

Postby BarryM » Sat Mar 18, 2017 9:43 am

Went to ride off last night and there was a very worrying clatter as I pulled away. Turns out both centre stand springs broke at the same time! I've found them on MotoBins but just wondering if I should be ordering new bolts and spacers at the same time. The rear wheel just brushes the ground when on the centre stand so just wondering if this is a common wear problem?

TIA

Hi
I dont know (check realoem.com) but on the R100R there are Top Hat spacers which really improved my stand when I changed them

Interesting, I use realoem for my car all the time but never thought of it for the bike. I'll take a look

Well I looked on Realoem and see the centre stand bolts onto a bracket above and then read on another forum to add spacers to lower the stand height. Have ordered the springs as a quick fix but will assess the condition of the stand next weekend and see if I need spacers or bushes as well.
