Broke and missing kickstand

I bought a nice 81 400 special, but the kickstand is missing the weld must have broke. I have a parts xs 400, but the touble of grinding off the parts one and having to find a good welder to weld it on is a little hard don't want some one to blow a hole in the frame, does some one make a bolt on kickstand or is there a nother solution? (short of carrying a block of wood to put under the centerstand?)

Take both bikes to a commercial welding shop. Let them remove the "new" side stand and weld it in place. Ask that they reinforce the mount bracket in the process. You should wind up with a VERY strong side stand, better than new. Be sure to clean the weld, prime and paint it also. Rust is a bad thing.

Please rate this answer. Thanks :)

Hi Bh_upchurch, for this situation I would call my local dealer or reputable shop's service/parts department and inquire about any possible quick fix or parts inquiry. If necessary transport your vehicle to the dealer or shop and have a professional technician take it for a test drive, if it is in running condition, and give you a written estimate of repairs and answer any specific questions you may have about your issue. Good luck and have a nice day. 1980 Yamaha Motorcycle Service Repair Manuals

If the bike has been dropped, the stand could easilly be slightly bent.
Put the bike on a paddock stand and take a closer look. It will become obvious as soon as you can get underneath with the stand.
Ride safe.
Nice bike!
