    72 CB175 kickstand

    I was told this is an OEM kickstand. It doesn't jive with the pics I've googled. My kickstand off the bike has been butchered by someone so I can't even use it as a reference.

    It does look OEM but no telling what bike it came off of.

    This is the CB175 side stand that I've recently bought from a breaker in the UK. I hope it is the correct part.

    One of the problems with these side stands is the bracket which attaches them to the frame. I've seen three of these now, all of which were bent and / or cracked at the welds. Fortunately, I've been able to find new old stock replacements for both my 175s.

    On my latest 175, the K4, a previous owner has crudely welded the remains of this bracket directly to the frame, then attached this weird kick stand. I hope to grind the welds off and replace it with the correct bracket, when I have the bike stripped down for the frame to be painted or powder coated.

    As received, note the dented and rotted out silencer.

    I feel your pain. Mine was very similarly "repaired". I use that word loosely.
    I believe my OEM stand is your first image. I just can't find one.

    That first kickstand looks like the one that came on my CL175k3 . Richards looks correct for a CB based on Ray's restoration 72 CB175 kickstand-1971cb175k5restoration003_zpsff595530.jpg

    Simo is correct, I have a cb k3 model,and that is the correct stand, but I don't bother with it as mine has been previously welded and looks a bit sus to me.Also on my new DS mufflers the rubber stopper thingy is in the wrong place and the stand just bashes the muffler.

    A few more pictures.

    My CL175K7, when I first got it.

    72 CB175 kickstand-cl175-3.jpg

    I fitted DS pattern pipes, as part of my conversion to CB spec. The stand hit the pipes, as Grazman has found, so I added a piece which both acts as a stop, and gives me something to press on to deploy the side stand. Just drilled and tapped an M6 thread, used an M6 screw covered in a bit of fuel hose. Hasn't caused me any ground clearance issues, but then I don't often get my elbow down

    I have now reverted to CL pipes for a while, which shows off the mounting bracket more clearly.

    ? Interesting aside. The rear passenger footpeg on the CL has an extended bracket, so that passenger leg will clear the pipes. I have a CB one to fit with the other pipes. CL footbar and rear brake pedal are also different, higher ground clearance / tucked in more, so CB pipes not a direct fit without matching footbar and brake pedal. CB200 brake pedal works well.

    That's interesting Richard,my CB does not have that bracket you mention, but just has a flat piece welded onto the frame with the hook for the spring on the back.The cmnsl parts fiche shows a bracket so I suppose a previous owner must have altered mine.
    Following up on my previous thread,the centre stand also hits the pipes on my new DS pipes as the stopper is in the wrong place. I have fixed that by fitting a piece of garden hose over the end of the stand. i'll continue my whinge by also mentioning that I cannot use the kick starter any more as there is no cutout on the pipe,luckily the electric starter works ok. I realise that they are not OEM, but its a little disappointing that the manufacturers could not have made things a little more accurate.

    Cheers, Grazman

    That SUCKS. I know they were not cheap either. This is important info as I was spying the DS replacements as well. $179 US each and the fitment is off? If that's the case, I'll remove the stop brackets and TIG them in the correct spot. If I have to do that, can I send DS an invoice?
