Since this bike doesn't have central
stand (as Fazer does), I made extra stand for the purpose of chain
and also some say that it's a good idea to have your bike on such stand over
the winter to prevent deformation of tires.
Sure, it's cheap to buy, but if you're up
to it, why not make it by yourself?
It can be build from waste pipes so cost is almost nothing, and whatever you
save, you can spend on beer later (of course walking TO and FROM local pub
Stand is made of steel pipes, all
measures are in mm. If you are unfamiliar with it, note that 1
inch is 25.4
mm, so you can calculate.
- steel pipe - I used 30x20 one;
- Then you need two wheels. I used some old ones I found and they are 10
- Two screws M10 x 1.25
mm - Note
that these two screws are NOT standard M10 (which are M10 x 1.5mm), but M10
- some paint and maybe a piece of self-adhesive fabrics for sticking it to
the bottom to prevent paint scratching.
Then cut all needed parts, weld them together, paint and - voila!! Stand
is finished! Piece of cake...
Putting the motor on this stand is really
easy! Far more easy as it looks on first sight. Just insert stand on two
screws, holding it a bit sideway (like shows pic 08), then hold passenger
handle with your left hand and push stand down with your right hand and bike
will first straighten up, then you can lift it.
Taking it down is also easy - just lift
stand gently while dragging passenger handle towards yourself a bit to make
sure that bike won't fall on the right.
BUT WATCH OUT !! DON'T FORGET TO PUT SIDE
