Gl1000 centre stand compatibility

Post by Mikethenang »



hello guys,

have had a look but haven't been able to find anything on the topic.

i am just started restoring an old 1977 rustbucket i picked up on ebay and need a centre stand to make dismantling the back end easier.

I have not been able to find any compatibility info regarding years 75-79, the part numbers differ but can anyone tell me which parts are interchangeable amongst models? i have read that 75-77 generally share parts but not sure.

thanks for any ifo

mike

My guess is that you can get a center stand for any of the GL1000's and it will fit. I also have a GL1K, a 1978 model that some lunatic of a previous owner removed the center stand from. WTF?? And worse - he bent the little arms badly on purpose to remove it. So I also have to buy a replacement and then see if I can re-bend the four little arms to retain the center stand, and there are no images or forum discussions on this. Ebay does have a boat load of center stands for you, and they are cheap. Go buy one and tell me how to install it :)

Cool. If you can post some photos that would be good for this thread. Not much on center stands here, and its a vital piece of hardware. If you need it, there is some good info on valve adjustments, timing, etc here. Getting your fuel tank clean will eventually become a priority for you, too.
