Side stand CB550k 1977
« on: February 15, 2021, 07:59:44 PM »
My side stand hits the exhaust when up to the point where it’s left quite a big dent, the exhausts are the originals. I presume it shouldn’t touch the exhausts at all, Has anyone got a photo of theirs they could post please or ideas how to stop it. Previous owner seemed happy to live with it but the price of these exhausts I’d rather stop it before putting a hole in it

There should be a rubber stopper on the exhaust part number  9501161000  ;)

Thanks but that’s for the centre stand which is is already on my exhaust so that’s fine it the side stand that’s bangs against the exhaust

Either the frame mount is bent or worn, which is very common, or the exhaust isn't fitted correctly, or the side stand is bent (also very common) or the wrong one for that model (and you've guessed it, also very common 😊)

Thanks Julie I was kind of thinking along the lines it might not be the correct stand as I’ve come across a couple of things that don’t seem right, doesn’t seem bent. Should it just about touch exhaust or clear it by a good amount ?

Not sure about the clearance but it certainly shouldn't touch.

If you post a side view pic of your bike, someone with a K3 will be able to advise on clearance.

I have just checked my K3 and my side stand is also touching the exhaust pipe when it is in the parked position. To be fair I very use the side stand, when I tried the side stand with the bike on the centre stand it appears there is a bit of lateral movement around the bolt which probably means that the bolt hole in the frame is worn. I may disassemble it this weekend and have a look.

Thanks for reply Dave, my side stand when in up position touches and if the exhaust wasn’t there it would raise even higher, something can’t be right, I’ve had exhaust off and back on again and it’s in correct position and the stand or mounting bracket doesn’t look damaged, but when riding it going to constantly bang and rub damaging exhaust even more

I'm wondering if part of the side stand mount has either been flattened by repeated use or part has broken off.

The pic of the side stand mount has a small lug located just behind it, I'm thinking this acts as a sort of stop, so the stand hits this and stops it riding up too much, a pic take when the stand is raised of this area would confirm this. Maybe have a small weld blob on there if that's the case, cheaper than buying a new exhaust.
Don't play stupid with me, I'm better at it

I’ve got no exhaust on my k3 at the moment but took this pic maybe you can check yours to see if it’s similar or if the stand is worn and allowing it to go too high
