OEM centerstand help

I need a bit of help with installation of an OEM centerstand I bought for my 919 recently in the classifieds here. I have it mounted with the big spring attached and I'm wondering where the smaller spring goes?. Does it attach in the same location, but inside the bigger spring? Also, the stand hits my chain with the spring attached. Is there a way to keep this from happening? Thanks

The smaller spring does indeed go inside the larger one.

I don't recall how the OEM stand stops the centerstand, but the SW Motech stand I have includes a little arm to stop the centerstand's arc.

There is a stop that bolts to the underside of the bike with two bolts

There should be a bolt on bracket with stop for the stand to rest against when up.

The stand was used and didn't come with that bracket stop. Anybody have a picture of theirs and/or a clever solution to achieve the same effect?

Thanks. A picture would be great. I don't have any metal work experience, but I'm hoping I can make something work

Anybody that has one of these bolt on brackets and metal fabrication skills want to get paid to make one?

That is it, sorry I spaced it. I'm putting new hard brake lines on my JEEP. I had to remove the whole front clip to replace the passenger front. Damn engineers.

No worries SPYDER. That jeep brake job looks like a PITA.

Heard4it. I don't use that bracket. I have chopped out the centre brace pipe of my stand. I only use my centre stand to service my rear. I fit it in 5 min, do the work and take it off. I live in Australia and Aus post are a bunch of Pirates, but you are welcome to it.
