Hi all, New to club and was wondering what you recommend as a side stand for my B175 and where to get it. Thanks

Hi Edward and welcome to the forum. If you add some extra detail like your location, you might find someone nearby who has a solution. Otherwise all the info you could ever need or want-and even more is available in the FAQs and technical sections. But, as always, if in doubt just ask. Enjoy your bantam.

A sidestand from a Kawasaki ZX600 is a good starting point, apparently.

Just seen this and went straight on ebay. Loads on there, but nearer the £20 mark now. I saw some had ally legs, but went for a steel item at £17.50 inc p+p.  My D14 has an unusually good centre stand and lifts the bike front wheel well off the ground, but it takes a good heave and I am getting on a bit, it will be a lot easier with a sidestand.

Just a question about the Kwaka side stand:

 

where is the best place to fit it on the footpeg hanger? The hanger curves towards the front and when the mounting plate is offered up to the middle/rear part of the hanger, the folded side stand sticks out somewhat. One of the previous post photos show it fitted nearer the front of the hanger on the curved part. This will allow the stand to retract closer to the bike. The other option is to make a wedged shaped bit of steel to change the angle the mounting plate fits to. I didn't want to use washers to alter the mounting plate position.

Any advice or pictures appreciated!

How do you post photos. I fitted a side stand a few months ago and posted on the facebook group but its seems complicated to post photos here.

Not at all, you just need to make sure it's below 1Mb file size. Use your computer to do that if it's bigger.

It's in the  "Forum Info: Tutorials and Site Problems" section

** Please log in to view **

....although god knows how a simple instructional post became a 4 page topic!!

Make sure image is less than 1mb and that it's stored somewhere that the device you're using can access it.  Then click "attachments" at bottom of message box that you're writing in; then "add files" - Bingo!

Good luck

If you post some pics, I'm sure someone will be able to help you, edward.

Remember  it's a 1MB size limit on pictures

Just taken delivery of my zx600 sidestand. Had a quick look last night and it seems like it will fit best as far forward as possible towards the brake pivot and at the lower edge of the foot rest bracket. In that position it folds away nicely in line with the swinging arm. It has a very thick steel bracket and I may have to grind a bit off the back on the right hand side as it just comes on to the bend in the foot rest bracket, but looks like an easy fix.
