Hi All

i have a b175, i think, maybe a dumb question, but where does the centre stand spring connect to, i bought the one with one large hooked end, and one small, does it just go round the frame, or there is a hole in the back of the  downtube low down, any advice/ pictures would help

Thanks in advance

Dave

Thanks sunny

will have another look. on another note! if i have my bike on the stand, put it in gear, and pull the clutch in. should the rear wheel spin freely, i have just put a new clutch cable on ( what a ball ache!! ) and it feels like i have a clutch, but the wheel won't spin with the bike in gear and the clutch pulled in

Thanks again

Dave

The wheel should turn when it is in gear with the clutch disengaged. It won’t spin as freely as when in neutral. 
it sounds like your clutch is not dis engaging properly causing clutch drag. You need to loosen the cable at the clutch lever and then adjust the clutch at the engine first with the screw and lock nut to allow a tiny amount of play and then take any excess slack out of the cable at the clutch lever.

Photo of the centre stand spring. It's from a D14 but B175 is the same set up.
