Title: Made a new side stand for my 610
Post by: alanB on August 29, 2013, 07:32:36 pm
As we all know the std side stand is a piece of junk which breaks if it experiences any sort of force, like a butterfly landing on it!

TK had a mate of his weld a few alternatives up and very kindly offered me one of the spare prototypes he had lying around.

It didn't quite fit due to the angle between the "head" and the tube being slightly wrong.  I was in a rush and decided to just quickly bend it a bit with a sledge hammer  :P.

When I was finished all I had was a useless piece of spaghetti  :biggrin:

So I cut it up a started again.  But thankfully I hadn't ruined the headpiece.

I got some 25x1.6mm tubing which was slightly larger in diameter than the standard stand and this time took my time measuring and making the cuts etc.

Took it all off to the craftsman welder I found and now I have a really nice, strong side stand.  Its still quite light, only 100g heavier than the standard stand, but much stronger as well as 1cm longer  :thumleft:

When my bike was new I welded up a section behind the head part to make it stronger, but never really had confidence in it, so last month I bit the bullet and splurged R1200 on a 630 stand, ordered it from Puzey and had to wait a month! and found it does not fit, it does not go back enough and the foot is at an awkward angle, so massaged the part where the stand stops so that it can move further to the front, the end plate is still not right, but a lot better. The footplate is also ridiculously small and will sink into even dry soil......should probably just have made my own!

The 630 stand can be made to fit properly by cutting the foot a bit shorter and adjusting the angle some. I picked up a used one and works great. Blazes your bikes are going tp topple over me thinks  ::) (well when you get them out the lounge)  >:D  You can also grind the hinge stop to allow it to position at a more forward angle which is also more stable.  :thumleft:

never had any topple with the 630 stand --YET -- Just used a dremel tool in front to get the angle right on the hinge stop and tapped a stainless screw in the back to work as a buffer so that it does not swing to far back

OK - thinking again about it I think I got a 510 one that was longer. Certainly the OEM one is some form of mozzarella.
