  1. Xrv750 centrestand with ohlins

    Africa Twin
    Hi, does anyone have fitted or know if a centrestand is long enough to work with an ohlins shock and fork extenders fitted. I am thinking of buying one and wonder if it will need extending to enable it to work correctly. Many thanks, Jason.
  2. does a FMX centrestand fit on a SLR

    Dominator / FMX
    So... thats basically it. There's a fmx SW-motech centre stand on sale for 70 bucks, and I was wondering if it will fit my SLR. Are the connections on both bikes the same? Cheers. Link
  3. White smoke

    Transalp
    hi everyone i'm new to the forum! I have recently got hold of a transalp 650. Stupidly I dropped it on its right hand side while taking it off its centrestand. iT WAS a controlled drop not a sudden one. it lay there for about 1 hr before I could get help to lift it off again. When I restarted it...
  4. Decat pipe centrestand

    Transalp
    Hi New member from London here. Recently got an xl700 and thus far very impressed, good forum also. I am wanting to change the exhaust system and rather than just the silencer (not sure which yet but probably a fuel one given the reviews on here) I want to install a decat pipe. I have a centre...
  5. The Louis Liftstick for an RD04

    Africa Twin
    So, being centrestand less, I'm very tempted by one of these https://www.louis.de/en/artikel/liftstick-louis/10003338?list=108368402 but I'm a tad concerned that the shroud that protects the rear brake might make this impractical. Does anyone have one? It's not exactly expensive so I'm very...
  6. New Exhaust, Seat and Spots all Fitted

    Transalp
    At last the weather allowed me to get the bike out of the garage and take some photos and video with the new Exhaust. The FUEL Exhaust is on , I took the baffle out so will see how it goes once the ice has gone! I think the new seat by Alistair Else (HERE) looks really good, you can also see...
  7. Centre Stand ?

    Transalp
    I got a bog standard rear Paddock Stand last week but when I used it at the weekend the damn thing opened up and as I was trying to get it off the bloody bike fell over ! Luckily the Crash Bars saved any problems but it made me very suspicious of using the stand again. So I'm looking at...

    Varadero
    Trying to mount the Tutoro automatic oiler on the vara.. A real pain to find the best place for the resorvoir.. Present o got it mounted on the left pass peg but it looks quite odd there.. Thinking of mounting it inside the left cover up on the screw holding the inner fender in place BUT.. doing...
  9. Centrestand vs. bike lift?

    Africa Twin
    Obviously both would be nice, but budgetary constraints mean I can presently only afford one or the other... The pros and cons so far as I can see are including, but not limited to: Centrestand - Pro... Always on the bike, wherever it and I am, Ease of blocking up, foot on the base and lift...

    Africa Twin
    I have just acquired a centre from forum member Laurie, cheers for that. Now fitting it, anybody got any tips? I found this link which looks helpful especially the bit about easing the tension on the spring. AfricaTwin.co.uk - XRV750 > Fitting a Honda Centre Stand to XRV750W (7A) Do I need to...
  11. Neglected transalp

    Transalp
    Hello everyone, This is my first post so please go easy on me! I got my 2000 650 transalp (he’s called Troy) last November and he had been severely neglected. He had been sitting on his own in a garage for over 5 years, what a waste…. This neglect has obviously had an impact on almost every...
  12. varadero 1000 clacking noises!!

    Varadero
    I have recently bought an 09 varadero 1000 with 7000 miles on it. really pleased with it as i like the commanding riding position, its comfortable solo or 2 up, and handles well on bumpy rural roads. Far more comfy and easy to ride than my previous 1250 bandit GT. However on several occasions...
  13. centrestand springs

    Transalp
    Hello I have a '97 TA600 with a centrestand fitted. It is the type that has 2 u-bends for feet and you can raise from either side of the bike. It has only one spring fitted which allows the stand to sag and scrape the road sometimes when cornering. I guess there should be 2 springs? Also its a...

    Africa Twin
    For those of you with longer suspension (WP, Sachs, Ohlins, etc.), where did you get your sidestand or centrestand lengthened? Iain.
  15. Fitting a centrestand

    Transalp
    this is just for info really - yesterday I fitted a centrestand to my Transalp. The process was very straightforwards - except for fitting the spring. After some trial :confused: and error :blob6:the eventual method adopted was as follows: 1. attach the spring to a trolley-jack securely by...

  17. homebrew temp centrestand

    Transalp
    I recall reading a thread in which someone suggested using an 18mm steel bar threaded through the brackets that are intended for the Honda OE centrestand with a couple of axle stands on either side. "What a brilliant idea!", I thought - no need to shell out 100 quid for a centrestand when I...
  18. Centrestand springs.

    Transalp
    Bought a centrestand from David Silver and fitted it today. All my apprehension was un-necessary. Using your useful tips it went on fairly easily, especially using the cord method as explained by MarkR. The only thing i am unsure of is does it matter which way up the 'J 'end of the spring...
