BDCW standstand relocater broken bolt

Hi,

I have a BDCW standstand relocater bracket, the other day I broke the main bolt that runs through the bottom of the engine. For the moment I put a 5/16" bolt from home depot in to get me by but want to fix it properly

Note is not a fault of the product as such, I do load it heavily as the wife gets on the side-stand side and then I get on. We try to minimise the weight when getting on and off, but there is always some weight.

I was wondering if this has happened to anyone else? And if so did they find a solution to prevent it happening again.

Any feedbank welcome.

Cheers,

Craig

Yep - got here last night, went through Nogales in the end - about 3/4 hour and that included a dog going through the car. Mexico was brillant, wish we had much more time down there I hope you and Ellen enjoy the rest of your time.

There are two bolts that hold the bracket on, one goes the engine mount (front) and the other through the R/H centre stand mounting bolt (rear). The one that broke was the long one that went through the engine.

The bolt broke at the end of the thread. I was thinking that turning it around so the head was on the side-stand side of the bike and the thread on the other side might give take some of the load off the threaded part of the bolt.

I meant to show you when I saw you the other day but amongst all the stories it skipped my mind.

You're not supposed to kickstart it while it's on the side stand.

Yes it has happened to other people. Two things, use a high strength bolt not a regular one and snug the bolt now and then. The bolt breaks when it has a little play in it. When it is tight, there are no sheer forces on it. I have mine reversed but more for sidestand sensor clearance with a slightly longer bolt.
