C10L centre stand spacers
« on: October 19, 2020, 09:20:41 am »
Does anyone know the correct dimensions for the tube spacers and the hex rod on a C10L centrestand?

My problem is that I only have a little bit of hex at each end to locate the footrests, so when I wind the footrest nuts on, the centre stand jams and won’t swing up cleanly.

If I make longer spacers, I run out of hex.  If I make shorter spacers it binds the centre stand.

Any thoughts?

The spacer in the centre stand is either to short or has been loose and worn into plates,as tightening the centre rod should not pull the plates in at all.
And, centre rod is either to short, or the outer spacers are to long if you don't have enough thread.
Quite important to get this area correct and well tightened.

There’s no centre spacer on this model Graham.  The stand fits outside of the frame gear box plates.

It’s the original hex rod.

To stop the stand binding I need more clearance between stand and spacers. Longer spacers aren’t going to help. I can barely get the footrest onto the hex as it is.

I might have have to trim the stand bushes.

The design is the same as in early Bantams. The spacers are probably similar to those used on early Bantams so if you need new ones you could modify the Bantam types.
If you need a new mounting bar.  - https://www.draganfly.co.uk/triumph-shop/twin-cylinder/product/5584-footrest-tie-rod-n-a/category_pathway-2
