Just for anyone who may be interested, these stands are really good especially if you're on your own lifting the back up. One piece of info is missing however - the year of bike it fits. The early 675s like mine have smaller threads in the eyes on the swingarm. Later 675s (not sure when, but still pre-2013) had thicker eyes. Not sure offhand but I think 2008-10 were M5, and then after that they went to M6. (?) It makes a difference as obviously it won't fit all.

The only V8 I'm likely to own comes in one litre tetrapaks and tastes like celery.

Play nicely!
Bikes I've had:
Vespa 150 Super, GPz500s, FZR600R, ZX6R, FZS1000 (x2), 2009 Matt Graphite STR
and some pedally ones as well!

cheers for the info Hotmetal 

  I should have mentioned it comes with the handle, bobbins and bolts, I used it on a Tiger 800 so the bolts are M8 but I guess smaller dia. bolts will work fine?

cheers   H

Goes on/in the bobbin mounting threads on the swing arm - which are M8 across the models.
I think the M5 / M6 change was the holes/threads for fitting the lower chain guard(shark fin) - pretty sure, cause when I sold on a shark fin from my 2015 I had to check it out as some one the older round lamps was interested

Double checked bobbin thread via eBay search. Most state M8. This below is for the genuine ones. From davedeathmotorcycles. Id trust anyone who trades with that name

The early bikes had M6 bobbin threads and changed to M8 in about 2011, probably when they lengthened the swing arm ..nothing to do with chain guard holes / tappings  :006:

Cheers Tom. Yes, it's the bobbin hole that got bigger after a certain year, I just can't remember exactly when. I've got a Monntek that was designed for the later M8 thread swingarm, but I can't use the wingnuts it came with on my 09, I just use the M6 bobbins that were on the bike when I got it as screws. Obviously this is not ideal, as it gives some play and requires an Allen key. The thrust of my post (oo-er) was to get the OP to say which thread size/ bike year his stand fits, as this is one of the tiny things that everyone forgets was a change between years on our early 675s.

so, now that we know what bike it fits:

Postage is 14.50
   Royal mail - 48hr signed for.
( I`am not messing about with other carriers who have a `patchy` reputation )

So if anyone is interested, the stand is 64.50 posted.

cheers   H

The power of the forum. So one of those changes that doesnt seem to fit with the main change in 2013.  Being clear about parts for 2011/12 under seat cans but bug eyed head lights must be a pain. All about the VIN I guess.
Screen shot from the above eBay item suggests a VIN change point. I guess, if in doubt, get a trusty M8 bolt and give it a check.

You could get a long M8 bolt and turn the end down to M6 i SUPPOSE...A BIT TRICKY THOUGH  :028:
