Centerstand & relay arm maintenance ..

Post by CollingsBob » Sat Mar 16, 2019 1:28 pm

As soon as it’s warm enough in the garage to work on the bike I’m going to tackle the centerstand and relay arm lube job..
Apart from the centerstand bolt that will get cut off to remove it, are there any other bolts,nuts, parts that I should order?

Bob, just finished mine, the bolts are 10mm x 1.25 x 30mm long. I couldn't get hex head, got socket head instead. The additional thickness of the head made install more difficult. If you are buying ahead of the teardown, order the hex head bolts. Are you doing the grease fitting install? I asked for and received Russ's pics, etc however I wont be doing it again for sometime.

I’m pretty sure that I’ll do the grease fitting install later this summer, Russ is out of commission for a bit and my bike needs its 25,000km maintenance pretty soon. I’m off to the Yamaha dealer to get the bolts and Honda brake pins at the same time..

I'm with Tom. Why? I spray the joint with rust check now and then. No need to remove it.

I suppose there are a wide range of opinions on this...
