Hello,

I found that last week :
Image
I paid the exorbitant price of 25 euros for that :wink2:

Do you know if the center stand was the option that the 3AJ could come with or it should have been bought elsewhere ?
Looking at the other topics at the forum I saw that Motech was doing them but mine is different than theirs.

Sorry for the pic quality – I cannot do better pics as the center stand is at powder coaters now...

cheers,
Pawel

I have seen that brand of side stand before but forget the make? :scratch: there was no factory/OEM option as far as im aware? but this looks identical to jibbers stand.

I have one of those stands too..... I think, I may be wrong but the Swiss models may have had them fitted as standard....
The future is not what it used to be....

Hello,

I want to fit the kickstarter to my engine.

So far, I have collected this :
Image

Image

Do you know what parts from the figure below I should buy in order to be able to install the kickstarter ? For the moment I see number 15 et 16. Anything else ?
Image

I will not be installing the decompression mechanism – the kick is to be used only in emergency.

Cheers,
Pawel

You will need Item 17 and associated items. This is the idler gear between the kickstart gear and the clutch.
