MY SIDESTAND UPGRADE REPLACEMENT
« on: November 20, 2012, 10:20:49 PM »
I mentioned in another post that I did not like the angle of lean the stock sidestand gave my G5 Deluxe. I did not want to mend something on to the original stand. In looking around, I found that a stand from a 1976 Kawasaki H1, with spring & bolt, would do just what I wanted. I had to widen the original bolt hole, & use 2 washers as spacers. Enclosing some photos of my results, You can also see my "badboy"airhorn, Replacement shocks, & tire pump etc. I really like the new angle better, the new stand does not interfere, or get in the way of the other stand at all.

Looks like it was meant for the bike. Good find.

What do you mean by "tyre pump" ?

Guess it is hard to see, but on my lower rear frame tube, there is indeed an accessory tire pump. got it from one of the DOMI RACER sales years ago, & it finally found a home on my G5 Deluxe. I picked up the 1976 Kawasaki kick stand for $8. on Ebay. Hope Enfield management copies it & sells them someday, it is perfect.

That's a stealth pump!  How difficult is that little thing to use on those tires?

As in the old saying, "Ferocity of attack, compensates for size" obviously it requires more work than a big pump, but it is there with you- if you should need it.
