Side stand for sportscity

My wife needs a side stand for the sportscity as she is small built and unable to put the bike on the full stand .
Does Aprilia have such a stand , or must we improvise by welding a side stand ? If so , any suggestions location where I can get this done ?

Thanks.

Me and my wife just got a suzuki gsx 600 katana (used) and im pretty sure the little window that tells how much oil it has is empty. i need to know how much oil i need to buy, what kind, and if its the...


Hi the gsx will have the quantity of oil required embosed on the rh case next to the riders footrest. The quantity required
For all the gsx750 range, is 3.5 litres, 10W40 SG,
When the engine has been standing a while place the bike on a centre stand, or ask your good wife to sit on the bike and hold it uprite, then check the oil level by looking through the window you have found, and the level should be observed, higher than half full but not over the top mark, when replacing the oil and filter, it may take up to 4 litres to fill up to the mark after running and alowing the oil to settle

HOW TO EASILY OIL A MOTORCYCLE CHAIN WITH NO MAIN STAND


If there is no main stand on your motorbike it can be a problem sometimes, not only do side stands dig into soft ground & warm tarmac they also make it awkward to oil the drive chain !

A simple way around this is to get either :-
A piece of strong piece of wood about an inch square ( or in diameter) or
A strong hammer or mallet or
A small trolley jack handle or similar preferably with rubber or taped ends

Whatever you use it must be about an inch (or more) longer than from the ground to the right hand end of the rear spindle (axle) or underside of the right hand swinging arm, WHILE THE BIKE LEANS on its side stand: For the very few bikes that have a side stand on the right, read left hand end of rear spindle

All you have to do is raise the rear wheel slightly by pivoting the weight of the bike on its front wheel & side stand

On medium to large bikes this means getting someone else to position themself on the side stand side of the bike, where they should put 1 foot against the side stand & reach over the bike to grab a good purchase point near the rear wheel, grab the nearest handlebar end with the other hand & pivot the bike forwards on its front wheel & side stand
This will lift the rear wheel a few inches so that your prop can be placed upright between the ground & your selected point on the bike

Spin the rear wheel by hand whilst applying non fling chain lubrication to both edges of your bikes chain

SIMPLE
EFFECTIVE
NO NEED TO CARRY A PADDOCK STAND IN YOUR RUCKSACK

Is your side stand down when you shift it into gear? If you have a side stand safety switch your motor cycle is designed to shut down if you put it in gear with out raising the side stand. It is set up that way so you wont be able to drive down the road with your side stand down , take a left turn, and crash your bike.

I just put my battery in the bike. I went to start it up, it powered up but when I went to start it up it clicked off.


The battery has to be fully charged on a trickle charger before putting it into the bike. The charging system in a bike is small compared to a car and does not keep the battery fully charged. Therefore, it is a good idea to put a trickle charger on it when it is idle.

How much oil???


I have always had good luck using 20W-50 motoroil in my XS400 and I think it holds 2-3 quarts. I put the bike up on the center stand and just add oil slowly until it shows to be full, then start the bike, run it for about 10-15 seconds, shut it off and recheck the oil level.

How to check water in the radiator, how do i get to it?


I believe there is a cap on the right side of the radiator.Put your bike on the kick stand, take off the right hand fairing and unscrew the cap to check if it is full.Don't forget to check the bleeding bottle too.Follow the small tube on the radiator's cap to find it (it is on the left hand side)

Suzuki burgman 650 won,t change gear


I had the same problem until I found out that when you put the Burgman on it's center stand, it pushes a small round metal pin (spring loaded or something similar) that limits the Burgman to 1st gear only. Some kind of safety feature, I guess. You can see the little switch if you put the bike on it's side-stand, get down on the right hand of the bike and look where the centre stand meets with the body of the bike. My switch was stuck in permanent "on" so I just pulled the pin to it's full extention with a pair of pliars, then cut it with a junior hacksaw.
