The main pivot attachment point. Was wondering if anyone rebushed one of these. Also the spring seamed to start losing tension..If you look closely at the upper right of the pic you'll see a stack of washers on the stop.I did that to close the gap the the swing armlegs, also the arm its self lost the rubber grommet stop too. The thing is so loose I'm thinking of taking it off.Getting noisy hitting the frame.DS04,
nvr2old,Did you get a lot of play up and down with the stand in up position? I can live with the wobble in the down position. i got to figure out a way to close the gap swing arm grommet to the frame grommet. Not sure even if i can find one from sw-motec if it's worth the money for a new spring to close the gap tighter.At around 90K I did some shimming to take out some play. That along with fresh lubing had it good to 122K when sold.
Thanks. I hear they fit a little better too. VStrom maybe different part indeed.Will do.My semi-educated guess would be the bushings where it attaches to the frame, unless the frame holes themselves (where the bushings are inserted) have elongated. If it's sloppy, I can't imagine grease fixing it, it will just make the "slopiness" smoother. Where to get replacements? I don;t know. 18 years on those bushings seems a pretty good life to me.
But if you invest in a new center-stand, try the Suzuki OEM. I was impressed with mine during install. I don't know if this one is right for your year model (mine for 2022 DL650 was Part# 42100-06871) but read the reviews below Suzuki 42100-06870 Center Stand Set Dl650l2 OEM for sale online | eBay
Thanks for the reply nvr2old. Sounds like the way to go. Got to take it off in warmer weather look it over.I did this over 5 years ago. I shimmed the side to side with a washer . On the pivot shaft part a bushing of some sort was made and took out the play
