Wobbly Side Stand

Post by freeride on Sat 25 May 2013, 10:32 pm

I have a wobberly side stand. It moves sideways when loaded slightly as if the jaws are wider than normal or the hole in the frame is slightly bigger than it should be.

Any ideas-take it off and vice it together to see if this improves it? Can you get new springs on their own and also can you get the springs only for the riders foot pegs?

I've got a similar problem with mine; all the years of use have worn both the bolt hole & the lug that the springs hook onto on the frame.
All that can be done is to get the hole filled with weld & re-drilled; have a look under the bike at where the springs hook on; if it's anything like mine there won't be much left. This is potentially bloody dangerous as you can imagine the spring coming unhooked while you're riding!

If you can keep it centred; it may have worn a slot. I know for sure the lug that holds the spring on mine is virtually gone so there should be the same amount of wear in the bolt hole in the frame. Camera later!

Hi all - sorry to resurrect an old post (but I figure better that than a brand new one).  I think I'm in a similar situation.  I assume the side stand is not meant to move under load, so from the look of it, it has worn away the bracket on which it mounts.  Are there any other solutions beyond filling with weld and re-drilling?

I don't suppose you can buy a replacement bracket to mount the sidestand?  (I'd go and look, but I'm on tiny offspring patrol so can't slope off to the garage...)

The side stand as you lower the bike onto it should move a bit it is kind of  a lock system

But it should not be a lot !

Hmmm, thanks gents. Might be overreacting. There's definite movement, so I'll keep an eye on it!

Mine moves this much, which I think is 'normal'.



Thanks to JerryFudd for getting my video to work!

Thank god for that. Really appreciate it, I only noticed mine when parked on my drive (steep angle). Could do without anything else to add to the to do list.

You've put my mind at rest, many thanks

I'd of thought there would have to be some give in it so that the repeated motion didn't start wearing the frame mount down, also if it where very rigid any movement would be transferred to the frame weld which can't be good so I would have thought you're fine.
