I might ask the seller for some dimensions. But the extension on the leg is something mine doesn't have. Expensive, isn't it?!?      Phil

Dimensions on the last photo of the listing.

Regret stands are expensive, more if they are BSA factory originals and not pattern parts.

Interesting thread.

Seem to have the right stand on mine, but as Rupert Ratio says is typical, worn to the extent neither wheel is off the ground.

With my dickie back has been a lotterie with a bad prize, even with it being shorter. Unfortunately no side stand on mine.

I've decided to live with mine, at least for now.  Might repair or replace it in time, and/or might extend the side stand at some stage. But for now, I'll put up with it.  Phil

Ive just fitted an aftermarket sidestand to mine as cant get a decent used one. also with oversize bolt hole its extra play. this one clamps onto the rear footrest arm.it did move as the clamp wasnt able to do up tight enough and the grub screw didnt hold. This was sorted with a plate made up to fit into the original pivot hole and the bracket stops movement. a bit heath robinson but keeps the bike in the position I want.
