I can help there, too-- mine angled to far forward from wear and tear, so I brazed a couple of bits onto the centerstand stop tabs. The deployed angle of the stand measures 75 deg from the horizontal, tho I'd suggest 80 deg. When it angles too far forward you really have to wrestle it off the centerstand-- it needs to be just slightly over-center.

I'd weld the first tab stop, make it a bit too thick and grind/adjust it to "perfect", then measure and add the other one. If you can support the bike so that the return-spring-less stand can swing below it will help-- I cluelessly did mine trial-and-error over several trials, but I was just an energetic kid back then...





BTW, my "BMW Photo Album" is at http://s142.photobucket.com/albums/r...oto/BMW%20R60/ and contains images for stuff I've posted as well as images that "might be useful".

Eventually I'm going to swap the bike stuff over to our SmugMug here...
