GTR Main Stand/side stand stopper brackets
« on: September 07, 2018, 11:10:12 AM »
One of the few missing pieces on my '67 GTR when purchased years ago (and only recently noticed) were the main (center) stand and side stand stopper brackets ( parts # 37and 38 in attachment). I recently was able to get these thru Richard, but I have couple of questions:

How and where are they located on the frame, and what hardware is used? Photos would be of great help.

Are the brackets left in their natural zinc plating, or are they supposed to be painted?

Thanks in advance!

Ken, it gets mounted where the back left passenger foot peg mounts.

BUT..... it's for the GTO's, not your GTR.  Part numbers ending in "9010" are usually for the GTO's or are for "special items/parts"

Yes, it is this lack of a stopper on the GTR that allows the stand to slowly smash a hole into the bottom of the muffler. Just my opinion, but I feel BS got this backwards.

There is a rubber "spool" that goes on the centerstand that prevents it from banging against the muffler. Item 35 in the image in the original post.

Well.... we all now know who has a hole in the bottom of their left muffler!  :o  ;D

Moonpup and Old Swartout: Thanks for clearing this up! Wish my GTR parts book had specified these were for GTO only!

iagree    Those two parts baffled me for a long time when I bought another GTR having had one back in 69.
          You will find there are many minor errors and anomilies all through the GTR/GTO manual and parts book. My original GTR manual had a full paragraph which explained that the alternator turned at half engine speed and how it affected the points and cam arrangement. WRONG, it turned at engine speed. I now know this paragraph had been copied and pasted from the earlier 175 manual and was corrected in later reprints.
         Have a look through the 175 manual, you will find it is far more comprehensive and informativel. BS were rightly proud of their machine and wanted the owner to fully understand how it worked.
        By comparison, the GTR manual  is a minimum effort affair. Cobble something together so we can get these bikes on the market ? Were BS questioning the future of their bike production when the GTR was launched ? I believe that was the case.
         Just my opinion,   Brian.
