Center Stand that clanks



Looked at the spring and its soft compared to the Africa Twin spring. Ask Herman and he'll tell you what a crap job it was to get the Africa Twin Center Spring in place.

But not too happy, they always mess up requests so they can make money.

Ill calculate the spring stiffness and get only 2.

It sure did improve the clang noise.
In the past doing 80km/h over a speed bump you looked down to see what has fallen off  :008:
Not I still hear it but only one soft clank. The only thing I suspect is it might make it more difficult to get on the center stand.
But the Africa Twin was a bi... to get on the stand so no problem there.

Just some feedback the double spring thing works.
So a stronger spring set will be great. No clanging sound on dirt.

Good thing will be that Mudflap shock guard, next.

Fender lifting
You need a T30 Elen Key and 6mm Bolts (2 (plus minus 15mm) and 6 Shorter and 2nuts) Unless you want to use the originals then you need only 2 short 6mm Bolts.
And a little force to get the black thingy out.
Before












Found that it you push it a little back the cables going round seams to fit better.


After


I actually put it back to standard, need to find shorter blots.
Will give better sizes after a visit to the Engineering store.  ;D


Feedback:
I used
4 * 6mm SS Bolts 10mm long
6 * 6mm SS Bolts 15mm long
and 4 Nuts

This weekend I did some resourch.
And inspected the 800GS who was riding with us. No mudflap aswell. And I saw its actually more open to the main Shock compared to the Tiger.
I did however got a Shock Sock. Looks nice and now I can actually say to myself its time to pull up my socks when I'm out there.

With this weekend. A lot of dirt Barberton area.
1. The recall on the spring is because the Centre Stand springs collapse. Will post pictures later but its important to get it out. Wasnt sure why but now we have some insight. The spring end opens up. and the Centre Stand drops.
Serious so get it sorted. Because I had two of them on and both did it. Luckly was on dirt.

2. Get yourself either 50/50 Heidi's or Mitas  SERIOUSLY if changes the whole feel of the bike on dirt.
She is so forgiving in every enviroment. You just ride look for your line, play with the throttle. ITS a BLAST with correct tires in dirt.

Dont have the mainstand but the sidestand spring is just a bothersome - constant clanging over the slightest bumps. Must see if Ican get a replacement spring.

Agree on the tyres - fitted E-07s and what a difference. This bike just continues to impress. I can't think of anything I'd improve (apart from that spring ;D).

What you hearing could actually be the chain rattle when its not got tension on the top. Rattles against the plastic guide. Check ADVRider, there is a pretty length discussion on it. I also have it, and am damn sure its not the stand.

Yip, you're right - not the stand at all but chain slap on the guide - picked this up on the last trip I did. Thanks.

Seeing we have the cause, can just imagine if you have a metal gaurd installed.  :imaposer:
Any idea's on fixing it? But seriously it doenst bother a lot. Making the gaurd longer is more a priority for me than this sound.
It does splatter (Hope its a word  :biggrin: ) the chain wax A LOT
1. Lifting the gaurd?
2. Get over it  :imaposer:  ?
