    Here's a pic of my spring looking up from the bottom. The long leg is to the rear of the bike. Hope it helps. My stand stays up fine. Cheers.

    My r75/6 has two springs, one on each side. I think that was how it was originally supplied. Gives you a spare if one were to break at the very least. Mine will stay up with one spring though. ...

    Thanks for the research. I've read that before I think. The filter itself doesn't have the "d" designation on it. Cheers.

    Yeah, I did a lot research and concluded that there aren't any compatibility issues. The Motul oil is SG rated and should be fine for top off between changes. Cheers.

    That's how my r75/6 center stand works. The springs just keep it in the up position while riding. I had two other airheads and I'm pretty sure that it was the same with them as well. Cheers.
