Mount the stand. if the bike goes up on it and both wheels are touching the ground, it fits. Then you need springs or extenders.

If the bike won't go up on it or both wheels aren't on the ground, it doesn't fit. Get another.


I've had it mounted but the springs won't hold it up.
That's what I'm saying, the fricking stock springs don't work with the Reynolds.

So the stand fits and works and all that and it's just the springts that are the issue?

Don't assume that the stock springs don't work. I'll look at mine in the AM, it's cold and rainy and dark and scary out at the moment. And I been in the Margaritas pretty hard.

Thanks! That's the way it was mounted when I bought the bike, and I did not question it. Makes sense, though.

The ride-offs I've had used different springs and hooked to the lower frame cross bar behind the transmission. They had a half moon sheet metal piece that looped around that cross member, with a hole in one end the spring hooks into.

It would be easy enough to fabricate something better.

The springs on my Ride Off stand finally got too tired and I had to replace them. I tried the stock springs from a dealer but these didn't fit right. I ended up with some springs from the local hardware store. I only have one of the moon clips to anchor the springs on the cross member so I will have to fashion another sort of anchor to get a second spring on the stand. Currently my center stand works with only one spring, it stays up but it is kinda weak and the second spring will return it to it's snappy attitude.

Well, that explains a few things.

My springs go to the stock spring mounts on the frame. They rub on the oil cooler (the thing that looks like a pan extender) but work anyway. My stand has no crossmember.

Looks like your stand is different than mine. The cross member wirespokes is talking about is the one behind the tranny.
I think I can come up with something even though there is a trade off.

Just a thought, try installing the spring with the coil end on top, the way the stock ones are mounted. This puts the coils oriented away from the engine, and may reduce the rubbing...

Thanks, but same difference. It's a strait line down the back of the thing.

Um, no... the hooks on the ends are 90 degrees different angles from spring. With coils at top = 180 degrees from case.

Sorry, I wasn't clear. If the coild face away from the case the back of the spring rubs. It's a strait line with the wire rubbing now. If the coils face the case it rubs a whole lot worse. All angles inbetween are variations on worse.

The coils don't rub, just the strait wire above them.

I could really use a set of Krauser tubular saddlebag mounts. As long as they aren't bent beyond belief i can use them. Rust doesn't matter as long as they're solid. I have a set of the cast mounts for partial trade as well. PM me if you have anything.
