    Independant mechanic

    Plus 1 on this guy. Excellent service at reasonable prices.

    It's designed like that for a reason! Just think about it. When you deploy the stand, you step down on a small tang and the stand drops down. Then you place your foot on the provided pad. You'd...

    Rattle

    I agree with Kurt! The power pulses of the engine have something to do with it, as all the gears are in constant mesh and have to have some play. I imagine that if the engine were an electric...

    Springs?

    Are you referring to spring set up? During the /2 era, BMW offered different springs, front and rear, for sidecar use. They were a heavier guage wire, and stiffer.
