Stand springs ?
« on: 20.11. 2018 16:02 »
Who does decent stand springs, I fitted two new internet springs before I fitted the engine. Now the centre stand is held up with cable ties and the side stand is not much better. Don't relish fitting the new ones this weather. Thanks.

Internet springs? I've been wondering what powers the Internet. Who winds them up?

i feel your pain - mine is help up by bungy cord, and the spring in question came from a reputable supplier only a year or so back.
i've recent got one from mikescalssicspares (above) and once i get my swingarm back on (hopefully this weekend) i'll fit it - so no experience to go on so far but it looks good and is black not shiny metal. pm me in a month if you want an update
