R75 Centerstand

My R75/7 was used with a sidecar for many years. 

When I acquired it, it came with an old beat version, unmounted, and a nice, shiny new one. I bolted the new one up (after having to helicoil the mounts) but found an odd problem: I can find nowhere to attach the springs to the frame. Can someone please point me to that spot, hopefully with a picture?

Thanks!

John,

MAX parts fiche to the rescue, I hope.

Take a look at this web page. https://shop.maxbmw.com/fiche/DiagramsMain.aspx?vid=51657&rnd=09082020

It shows 2 styles of sidestands, perhaps original and current replacement. The part you seek is either #5 or #11. It pivots on the sidestand bolt and anchors the springs.

I don't know how I missed that!

I was thinking it should be a lug.

My remaining question is that the diagram only shows one. Shall I get two, one for either side?

And thanks!

John,

You will need two springs, but only one shackle. MAX implies that you only need one spring; that is not correct. Its not often that MAX gets it wrong.

And put a dab of grease on that shackle where it hits the sidestand bolt.
