    Locate Old Post - Brown Sidestand Install (Improved)

    In the last year or so, there was a reply to a post showing in improved method of installing a Brown side stand.

    The reply included at least one picture and I think the featured bike was an R100RS.

    The improvement was to add a piece of flat bar stock to that the Brown side stand did not use the exhaust clamp as an attachment point.

    I've been through the search feature on three different occasions over the last few days and cannot find this post.

    Does anyone else happen to better at finding stuff; or, could the smart fellow who came up with the improved install re post the pictures?

    Cheers, Barron

    Nope! (But thanks for looking.)

    That post shows the stock install which uses the exhaust clamp as a primary mount point. The reply I am thinking about had (as best as I can remember) a really elegant solution that extended the mounting plate, using a flat bar, up to the front motor mount, to keep pressure off the exhaust clamp.

    I think they bike was an RS because I seem to remember fairing lowers in the picture.

    Searches I tried were "Brown" (seemed logical) and "exhaust clamp". No luck.

    And the front mount. Takes the stress off the clamp around the exhaust pipe and puts it on the front engine mount bolt.
