Linkage bracket and spring for R90/6 stock center stand
Fellow Airheads! I am really proud of my recent efforts in removing the OEM side stand from my '76 R90/6 and replacing it with a Brown side stand. All's good so far....the rub is that in removing the stock stand, I had to, of course, push the front through bolt in enough to remove the stand. The problem is that I cannot for the life of me figure out how to put the linkage bracket and spring back on the left side of the frame. Before taking off, now I have to physically bend down while sitting on the bike and lift the center stand up by hand because there is only one spring on the right side. Not good for the long run. Anyone have any experience on this one? Thanks in advance brothers and sisters. :help
Putting linkage bracket back on to attach left center stand spring
[QUOTE=lostboy;757269]Put the spacer/spring attachment back in without the spring, The curved part of the bracket goes under the sidestand pin with the spacer portion against the motor. After you have installed it, install the centerstand spring.[/QUOTE]
Thanks. I appreciate the info. You are speaking about attaching the black (painted the color of the frame) nickel-to-quarter sized 3/4" - 1" OD cylindrical protrusion that angles slightly up on the inside of the assembly where the OEM stand was attached to the front long through bolt, aren't you?
If I knew how to attach a photo to this response, I would do so.
