However the sound is coming from the transmission somewhere.....probably not from the gear box, it sounds more drive shaft or final drive...it's a clank without a rhythm ...kind of irregular, if this explains it, and metalic!

    Any ideas anyone?
    Weak spring in/or busted transmission cush drive maybe? There's two. One in the box and one in the shaft.

    If you take a look at a migsel ,you will instantly understand the price difference,
    The migsel is machined from solid stainless steel,the surefoot is black painted mild steel.
    Both do the job

    Thanks, I’ve not seen either, but it’s the massive 3 or 4 day airhead event just down the road from me at Lincoln next week so I will probably see just about every after market sidestand that’s ever been made for an airhead.

    Cheers mickey.

    Hi Mikey,
    Sadly I may not see you after all, I'd not realised it was a pre-paid and subsequently sold out ticket entry only, which is a big shame as I'm only down the road!
    Hope you have a really great weekend

    Yes I’m aware of this, but unfortunately I’m riding in a Lincolnshire Poachers pre 65 Trial at Nettleton.

    I’ll see what I can come up with, what time will the event finish on Sunday?

    Thanks Mickey

    The Surefoot on my 90/6 is very easy to operate from the saddle. But do remember that you have to retract it when setting off as the bike will not go round a LH corner with it extended.
    I keep on meaning to wire up an starter cutout switch as I find that when I’m hot and knackered retracting it gets forgotten!

    On my R100GS it was possible to simply connect the side stand switch into the line which leads to the neutral switch, and the result was that the bike would start in neutral with the stand down but when I put it into gear the motor cut out if the stand was still down.
    I used a switch from a Jap wrecker which had the same bullet connections as the harness so I didn't have to cut any wiring and it could be instantly disconnected if it was suspect.
    Don't know if it will work on other models but it is worth a try.
