    Seems the Parts fiche shows side stand mounted with two allen head cap bolts.
    BUT my 2000 LC4 Enduro uses one cap bolt and a recessed nut of some kind that is MIA. I talked to dealer and he said it was two bolts too.
    I need to see if I'm missing something or what gives.

    The rear bolt bolts to the frame, the front bolt hole appears to
    line up with the stud on the center stand????:ear

    Can some one get me a picture of your side stand?

    Seems that I got an odd ball.
    Bike has both side and center stand, and KTM Cycle Hutt couldn't find a part number for the shouldered nut that is needed for the side stand.

    I guess fro the lack of replies here no one has any ideas either.

    Sounds like a SW-Motech sidestand. Check with twistedthrottle.com for parts.

    Here you can see the missing Nut, its actually very similar to the same one holding the gas tank down.

    Thanks for the tips, I'll check with twisted throttle too.
    KTM sure doesn't know anything about it.

    That's definitely a SW-Motech sidestand. Twisted Throtle sells them. The nut is notorious for loosening. I used blue Loctite on mine, and check for tightness occasionally. No problems yet. I believe some have resorted to drilling and safety wire.

    :thumb Just talked to twistedthrottle and thats what it is. Seems SW-Mototech makes OEM parts for KTM too.
    Heres the link for future reference

    Theres a pdf at the bottom of the page that lists all the misc pieces.
    So anyone else that has this issue it can be found again. :clap

    Just watch fitting that nut, overtighten it and snap, no more bolt to screw the nut on.......DAMHIK

    The other bolt (screws into the frame) comes loose as well so i fitted a longer bolt & put a nyloc nut on the inside of the frame to lock it, I had no luck with loctite!

    Time to revive this thread.

    I broke both the bolt for the SW-Motech side stand, and the stud on my center stand.

    Is there some easy fix for the center stand, such as drilling out the broken stud and using a nut/bolt?

    That's what I did,my kickstand also broke so it'swelded to the frame.

    Ace hardware had a selection of nuts and bolts in Metric or American.

    Would you believe that I can't find a proper shouldered bolt to replace the broken shouldered/threaded pivot stud on the center stand? Nothing at Copper State Fasteners! Of all places, the nuts and bolts store has nothing. The local Ace has nothing. I'm going to check an Ace down in Phoenix next. The shoulder looks to be close to 10mm. How friggin' hard can it be to find a proper fit?
