Well, glad the sidestand tip has worked well for others too.

 

Nice to share a good thing.

 

Splendid tip-my-hat

I am a new forum member here on the BSA Bantam Club site.

My D14/4 lacks a side stand and I am sure would benefit greatly from one, looking on these pages a popular fitment seems to be an aftermarket  ZX type but I cannot find them on ebayuk, does anyone please have a link or know of a supplier for these stands?

Stand by for a run on Kawasaki sidestands! I just got one for £7. cool  

5 weeks after you I paid £22. Prices seem to be going up. I bought another one today for a friend for £25.

Thanks to who ever started this trend off. Very pleased with mine. Just 90 mins to fit from start to finish. Could do with Chopping off the switch mount and applying some fresh paint, but will I bother? I doubt it 🙂

Wow - this topic is longer-running than 'The Mousetrap'! My £7 stand was bought 4 years ago (and doesn't fit a D3 frown).

1956 D3 running, lights to sort. 7 other bikes in the Barn, 6 runners (when I get time!) and a still in progress Morini 250

Oops, looked at the date but not the year! Thought your post was 5 weeks ago 😀

I recently bought one for £15 delivered off fleabay.

Some thoughts on fitting:

1. if you look where the mounting points are for the brake/footrest plate are, to get maximum rigidity for the side stand, it needs to be fitted as far forward as possible. I notched my side stand so the brake pivot nestles into the side stand mounting plate. This also allows the mounting plate to fit on the flat front part of the brake lever plate.

2. Grind the inside rear part of the mounting plate at an angle to allow it to seat where the brake lever plate bends out towards the rear foot peg mount.

This allows the side stand to seat a little closer to the swing arm under the rear foot rest. It also fits better against the brake lever plate.

3. One problem after fitting is that the centre stand is slightly less accessible and you may have to deploy the sidestand to get easy access to the centre stand. I may have another look at welding a small bar to the centre stand to make it easier to deploy.

Great advice Adrian. Mine would have fitted even better if I'd followed it all. I did fit mine as close as possible to the brake pivot but didn't grind it to get it further forward.

My mounting plate doesn't sit flush against the hanger at the rear, but this doesn't seem to make any difference as the hanger is quite thick. 

I don't appear to have any issues deploying the main stand, so maybe our stands are from a slightly different model and mine sits higher?
