My bike has finally arrived and now the work begins.
I'll start with an easy question for someone with a similar bike.

I can see where the spring attaches to the centre stand, but where does the other end of the stand spring go to?

If someone could send a description or even a photo this would be appreciated.

Thanks,

Peter.

R62 Centre Stand Spring

The spring hooks to the bottom of the battery carrier.

R62 Centre Stand Spring

Thanks Darryl for the reply,

Obviously my bike has a replica battery holder so there is no hole for the spring end.
Also with the battery platform I cannot see how to attach the battery strap. It looks like the correct strap has a hook on the end?

Regards

Peter.

R62 Centre Stand Spring

I checked my photos, but I don't have a good shot of the location. There's a bracing web on the underside of the carrier, and this has a hole in it to accept the centerstand spring.

My R52 doesn't have an original (nr a very good repro) battery strap. Mine has two 10mm bolts that hold it to the inside of the carrier. On the outside, the strap ends with a captured dowel that is drilled and threaded crosswise, like the piece used in the band that holds the magneto to the top of the motor. A screw is placed through the battery carrier from the bottom and threaded into this dowel.

I believe that Dreher carries a hold down strap. (http://www.dreher-oldtimerteile.de)
