Cool2 ok

thx for the answer. The problem seams to big for me to overcome, ill hang here and see if someone has som tecnical update that is a bit more "hands on".

Im no engineer, so i feel like im back to square one...
There is no easy plug and play solution here im afraid, any ideas how to solve this? maby some drawing to help...>

Maby bend 2 stainless pipes and mount them in the front with the standard bolts, and make them follow the line of the underside and into the holes(with rubber bushings) . Then weld another pipe or 2 across to bolt the skidplate in ... and go from there?

Im out of ideas..

I'll give it a try.

cybbe,

I will make a sketch the way I see it. I think it will tuck up to where it would not be lower the the skid plate and fit right between the receivers for the skid plate.

I will try and get to it by the end of the week.

Sketch

cybbe,

I can email you the sketch if you would like, but I think you will get the idea. The mounting plates would sandwich between the frame and the foot peg brackets. The mounting plates would protrude downward and be inside the shadow of the receivers for the skid plate. I think it would be tucked up in the space between the two receivers. It will be some trial and error to get it just right but should not be too bad.

Making the legs the right shape to miss the chain, side stand and the shock linkage will take some planning as well.

Thumb ok,

please send that to me, i cant read whats written in that picture...

Dont you know anyone that has a 690 E to lend you, then you could make a central stand to just bolt on -and post it to me..
Im not sure you could just put vertical mount in there(sandwitch)
maby some stuff gets offset.

i have to take a closer look at that later...

mail silvergubben(at)hotmail.com

cybbe,

I will send it. It is hard to tell from just the parts fiche. But it looks like the plate is flat where the peg brackets bolt up. If I ever get time I will ask if someone has one in the Rockies Regional Forum, that I can use. Just too busy to start another project right now.

Thumb Mike..

I have a question about 1 thing in the drawing. I have made 2 changes in this picture compared to yours, is this change right or wrong?
1 is a bigger hole , 2 a thicker plate. I hope you get the point eaven if i didnt explain so well.

"Im allso a bit concerned about how near this assumed mount is to the bikes real ideal centerstand mount position.
and allso there is so much annoying stuff placed in the way of the stand when its in upper position, and skidplate is allso going to be shorter. Maby its better to mount skid first then stand on plate anyway, but keeping the idea of the sandwich plate.??"

I am just about complete with he stand for the TE610 Husky. This is the kind of stand that is fun to work on. They show a stand in the parts fiche but never made it. They have the mounting points already on the frame.

As soon as I am done with the XR400 I will see what I can do with the 690. The 690 seems like the kind of bike that a center would be useful on. Especially if it does not reduce ground clearance.

Wink good idea..

Ill be waiting for this 690 setup, the good old 640 stand was really nice and i hope something like that will popup here someday .

So ill just wait a bit for your construction for the 690 because its prob. better to let the real pro deal with this....thats you
Allso its no use for me to buy a skidplate before i really know whats the best option in this case.
Im so glad i started this thread, and so lucky to meet people that makes dreams come true...
Thx.

cybbe,

It will be some time until I get some time to even think about looking at the bike. Right now I am busy with new stands for a couple of other models. I think it will slow down in a little while and at that time I will see if someone in the Rookies can let me use there bike for a week or two. I think it will take that long for me to figure it out.

I would guess that a weld on type stand would be the fastest way to get this done. The mounting brackets could be easily welded on and then the rest is easy. A bracket similar to the 2009 TE610 would fit easily underneath and between the rear skid plate mounts on the frame.

I will let you know when I get around to looking at the bike.

Mike

ok

Thx mike, ill wait for your next report then...

And about the telescopic mojo stand, i dont think thats quiet what im looking for, but thanks for the input on that.

I like stands to be stable and i want to use it when taking both wheels off and when lubing the chain and maby eaven to take a rest on the bike itself.
so it must be able to carry both bike and me zzzzz

I think you don't do this on the road, so this will be a good solution:

Puke hehehe

well i guess i dont change wheels in the woods, but i need centerstand for fixing a flat tire or put in a new inner tube......


I have that thingy you put in the last picture, its allso a bit to tall so i have to lift the damn bike on to it before i can use it, and when its in place the plastic skidplate allmoast breaks and bike is wobbeling around like its resting on a football.

i hate that crap lift thing, real men invest in centerstands

im waiting for my man c-mike to update me on whats going on, or not going on....

i have 1.2 meter deep snow on my backyard and -20īC outside, so feel free to send me a free plane ticket to usa. cheers.
