Main Stand

Postby hogey » Tue May 02, 2017 5:21 pm

Just fitted a main stand to my recently acquired F650GS.
Looks simple to fit but had to get a hand to get the springs into place .
Quite a challenge

Hi
how did you find the seat? For me it was a board, on edge, with nails in, after 15 mile out on the test ride I would have happily have caught the bus home.

Hi George
Only ridden for 1 hour max and not found it to bad (yet)
Bought an expensive Corbin seat for my VFR I had before and that was great,
Funds don't allow for another now lol.
I take it you did not buy after your test ride .

Hi
no! SEAT, chain, no stand, cost lots of money, expensive insurance

But I liked the light weight & fuel consumption.
