Stretch the spring so you are able to insert coins or washers in each coil. The spring will probably be long enough to place it on the pins. remove the coins/washers. Go ride.

Can i use brake spring pliers to replace the kickstand spring


Remove the pivot bolt in the kick stand, put the spring on the kickstand and then pull the kickstand into place and get someone to push the pivot bolt back into place.

1500 Kawasaki Vulcan kick stand spring keeps coming off


Check for Up and Down play at end of kickstand. Usually these bikes will wear the kickstand mount on the Frame - wears like a half moon into it. At the same time it spreads out the Kickstand so that it can start flopping enough for the spring to come loose and fall off. To fix it - Replace kickstand, Spring, AND the Bolt. Then grind the Frame on the other side of the Half moon around the hole until it is LEVEL. Find a Washer (Stainless - .030 - .050 depending on how much you had to grind) and insert it between the Frame and the Kickstand. I have done DOZENS through the years and Never had to do it twice on the same bike. The Washer acts like a Bushing and prevents future wear. Good Luck!

Stalls out while on the freeway


had this problem on my 99 busa, replace your kickstand spring. what was happening was, i would be riding down the highway and it would just die for no reason, after a while i figured out it was the kickstand was coming down just enough to kill the bike and the kickstand would go back up into place. give it a try.

Do I need a special tool to attach the kickstand spring?


There are tools for hooking and stretching a spring but, if you can grab it with some vice grips, have the kick up where the spring stretch would be the least, you should be able to get the spring on.

I installed a new shift arm/kickstand plate and now my kickstand flops around with the bike on the jack and the spring installed? thus is a 1970 flh electra glide. what did i miss? it came apart so easy i...


The plate that the spring goes on is on the front two bolts of the kickstand, not the rear. If you didn't change any of the kickstand parts, it should be exactly like it was before. I'd advise looking at a picture or another bike and making sure you have the kickstand assembled correctly.

Kickstand spring popped off, kickstand is now loose and biks will not start even with kickstand down. problem is on a 2003 kawasaki 1600 vulcan classic


The kickstand has some kind of safety switch, if the spring is not broke you should be able to snap it back on (with the kickstand up) and have someone to hold the bike or put it on a lift. It might take some muscle or take it to a dealer and I'm sure they can pop it back on. Hope this helps.

How to put spring back on kickstand 2004 1200 sportster


There is a place on the frame and a place on the kickstand for each end of the spring to connect to. With the bike on the kickstand and someone to help steady the bike, use a pair of side cut pliers or a very strong spring hook to pull the spring and rconnect it to the kickstand.

If you can't get it this way, remove the pivot bolt, connect both ends in their proper positions and work the kickstand back into position so the pivot bolt will go back in.

It's tough but it can be done.

Kickstand spring came off i need a diagram


Take the bolt off holding the kick stand on. Then put the spring on. Now you have the needed leverage to once again line up the kick stand back into position to put the bolt back in.
