DIY Center stand for T7


Static

Recommended Posts

There was less work, and free time appeared. And sitting idle is boring... I decided to use my free time to benefit my T7

 

After reading several topics on this forum, I identified the main points:
1. Weight up to 3 kg (After reading this forum I realized that the average weight of the footrest is 3.5 - 4.5 kg)
2. Structural rigidity (I don’t consider aluminum as a material)
3. The foot lever is hidden behind the passenger footrest.
4. Easy installation of the spring without reducing its tension force.

 

So let's get started 🙂

First, let's wash off all the dirt, decide on the attachment points and kinematics...

The day was not in  wasted))
I carried out calculations and drew a model of the fasteners and elements of the center stand. Tomorrow it will be in metal.

I made a starter set of brackets.

The next step is welding and installation on the motorcycle, followed by the manufacture of the center stand frame.

@Tenerider I am not ripping on him.... I genuinely want to know. I never have experienced war. In my head I think it would be a national priory....

He’s probably wondering why you don’t ride a Harley

Lew,

In high-school there was a TV show "Then Came Bronson" and I became infatuated with motorcycles, even Harley's.

Shortly after I graduated (1976) and got a job, I started looking for a motorcycle.

As I lived in Milwaukee, Wisconsin (Harley Engine plant) the first one I test road was a Harley XLCR (Cafe Style).

Then for kicks, I test road a Yamaha DT400 (Enduro style)

End of story!

Drones are built by specialists and people who understand this. I will donate part of the money I earn to drones; drones really change the situation on the battlefield.
I sincerely wish that you never see war, never see a crazy neighbor launch a ballistic missile at you.
My friends and relatives are now in this war, some of them have died. I am not at war for health reasons.
My wife miraculously survived when an X-22 missile hit the shopping center; my wife left 5 minutes before the missile hit. The Russians specifically hit the city center with 2 missiles. Air defense forces have not yet shot down a single X-22, and Petriot also seems unable to intercept it.
What they tell you on TV about the war is 50% truth, the rest is manipulation. Russia brought death, destruction and suffering for the sake of the ambitions of one man who, thanks to propaganda, convinced an entire country to go kill its neighbors.
You can see what war is like through the eyes of a drone operator.

As for me, I help the army as much as I can, now I am printing loaders for cartridges for the .223Rem magazine
And one more thing... I repair Harley Davidson motorcycles😉

About today:
I installed the brackets on the motorcycle and made part of the center stand frame.
Tomorrow I will make structural reinforcements and attach them to the frame of the central stand.

@Static Thank you for your firsthand information. You have my/our prayers and support. 

With all that is happening in the world, we all should be concerned.

We crossed Ukraine in 2013, coming from russia, on our central asia trip, riding back to Holland. When i saw the news almost 2 years ago, i cried in front of the tv. We met so many great people, very friendly (russians too, at that time). Like you said, only because of 1 fu...  moron.

I hope i can ride to Ukraine once again in future. 🤗

There are some wonderful parts for further assembly! The center stand reinforcements are welded into place. The project is confidently being embodied in metal))

The base of the structure is installed on the center stand. There is not much left.

I had to spend some time making the lever, but it was worth it.

I added reinforcement to the central stand, tomorrow I will think about the spring... We need to find a solution to how easily and quickly you can install or remove the spring.
The solution to the problem is in the drawing on the computer, but we need to check it in metal 🙂
