Most motorcycle problems are caused by the nut that connects the handlebars to the saddle.

rubber stopper on fuel exhaust

Post by geewhizz on Fri 25 Mar 2016, 10:21 am

...the bit that keeps the centre stand away from the chain, anyone found a neat solution to make this deeper? With raised hangers my chain is a little close to the centre stand

I've emailed fuel to see if they do other sizes.

The one on my GPz600 was way deeper than Honda's offering & fitted the hole in the bracket of my CB fine.

when I finally put the centre stand on the bike I noticed that it came too far up and  started to lift the chain so I had to make an extra bracket of Bakelite and a strip of rubber

I will also be shortening the bolts before the link pipe goes on the bike, I have had a dummy run with it and it catches the stand stop nicely and at the right height so result Smile

Last August I fell off the bike and wrecked my modifird Yamaha silencer so I made a replacement with a simple piece of pipe from an exhaust company as a link. there was none of the stuff which was fitted to the standard silencer to restrain the centre stand or the bunch of rubber tubes from the engine.

My solution to this was cheap, a cable tie to tidy up the rubber tubes and a 'U' bolt car exhaust clamp fitted on the link pipe with a pair of lock nuts on one side of the U bolt to act as a centre stand stop. Works perfectly and cost tuppence.

I screwed a jubilee clip around the part of the exhaust which stops the stand coming up any further. I assume it's still there, haven't looked at it since 2013!
