slack in foot stand

Discussion in 'Bling and Appearance' started by MR_PEA, Aug 31, 2009.

  1. how much slack should there be in a foot stand for my f4i?
    there seems to be a bit of slack in mine and the bike seems to be leaning more then normal. the nut is quite tight.. ill have to take off the stand to see if there is any wear on the stand link.

    the amount of slack in the stand is about 1in when folded down..

    any ideas.??
  2. Take the bolt out and remove the stand. Place a large hammer INSIDE the bracket, and take a large hammer to the OUTSIDE of the bracket, and close the gap into which the stand slides to parallel.

    Refit the stand and keep the hammers near the door for when the Mormons come visit :LOL:.
