Falcon 74 centre stand

Falcon 74 centre stand

Post  bellacat1234 on Fri Mar 01, 2013 4:54 pm

What stops the centre stand moving too far forward. I have it fitted with the stop lug on the gearbox side, correct? The lug stops on the footrest shaft when its up but when you try to stand the bike up there is nothing to stop it so the bike will not stand up.
Also classic transfers tell you to protect transfers with an oil based clear varnish, whats best to use?
Many thanks in advance for any advice.

Transfers

Hi
Don't know about the centre stand, but as far as transfers are concerned use Humbrol clear lacquer.

I use a 2 part enamel clear. Down here its called 2k clear..But whatever you use, test it with a spare/extra transfer on a test plate. Once it turns to crap its a pain to repair. I also don't know about the stand.

I dont use anything over transfers some are 5yrs old and no problems with them, make sure the area is clean, washing up liquid is good for removing any grease ect,dry off and slide the transfer on.work`s for me.

Centre Stand

Post  fulmar88 on Sat Mar 02, 2013 8:59 pm

On the Falcon 81 the centre stand simply swings forwards until the top part of the legs foul some spacer tubes on the footrest cross bar. I'm sure the 74 is the same. There are three spacers between the frame pieces. The outer 2 have a thicker wall than the central one and are much shorter. The stand stops against the outer two spacers. If you haven't any spacers covering your hex footrest bar then this may be your problem although you won't be able to clamp your frame halves together without them. You may, of course, have the wrong centre stand.

CENTRE STAND

Post  bellacat1234 on Mon Mar 04, 2013 6:43 pm

Hi Steve thanks for your reply. Yes the top of the stand stops against the footrest shaft when not in use. What stops it the other way when you want to stand the bike on its stand?

Hi, what I described is for when the stand is in use. The footrest shaft is the forward one of the two. Have you fitted them the wrong way round? Ie the stand on the front shaft and the footrests on the rearmost shaft? A photo would help if this isn't the case.
