Can you show a little more detail where it bolts to the frame?





Yes sure!

You need first to take off the -ignition switch- part, and fix the side stand via the 92151 bolt, youíll need a longer bolt if you want to keep the central stand. Iíll post a picture but the left side of the stand locks perfectly with the frame, as I said a quick soldering point will make sure that it doesnít move in the future.

Recycling and re-using is the way to go, if it doesnít exists, just make it yourself!
I went to my local scrapyard and spent an hour looking for one that would fit, pretty surprised this one was a perfect fit!

Welcome to the forum Enzo.  Sweet v50 but I liked it with the fairing more. Are you going to put it back on?

I just got used to my v50ii sidestand and only use it for short stints like when warming the bike up. I like the way it springs up out of the way when Iím ready to go.

Thank you! I like the fairing too, but as Iím the city most if the time I like the bike better -naked-. That being said, Iíve put it back for a long trip last week.

Any way to check your V50? Could you post a picture? :)

One crucial mod that I would highly recommend for any V50 is the Hayes one suggested by Chuck (adding a relay to the starter circuit), the bike went from starting once every 3-4 times to starting every single  time.
