OEM or aftermarket?
on: November 27, 2019, 03:40:31 PM
The sidestand on my new 2018 Cr is different to the one on my previous 2015 Cr. Is this standard or had the previous owner fitted an aftermarket sidestand?

So NOT OEM for the 2018 model?

I've threadlocked the pad to try and stop it from rotating and falling off, which it nearly did last week but I caught it on the last thread. Whether home-produced or aftermarket, it's a fecking stupid idea cos eventually it will unwind itself and fall off.  :138:

If you are not confident in the threadlocking you could drill all the way through the side and thread, and secure it with a suitable split pin.  That way you can see immediately if there is an issue, and you can still remove it if you want to.

It's holding for now, but that is the next option.  :028:
