Centre stand not lifting rear wheel off ground

Post by fgclark123 on Thu 24 May 2018, 11:49 pm

Hi there,

Any idea if I can fix this by... taking it to a welding shop or in any cheapish way?

There are some centre stands on ebay but they seem rare. Any other make fit this bike?

Cheers - here's some pics

Don't know if you can get it fixed but mine is heading the same way Smile

I think I remember people saying that it was caused by wear on the frame lugs/holes that the stand attaches to.... doubtless someone with a better memory than me will come along soon to correct me.

If I really need to get the rear wheel off the ground I put a thin bit of board under the centre stand - not a good solution, but...

I am sure I read a thread on here somewhere about it.
Edit:
Does this help?
