Pacer SS Center Stand Spring Size

Charles McCusker /

Anyone know the size on this bad guy? Wife was riding yesterday and the spring decided to take a trip to narnia, so I need to find a replacement that is the same or close. Thanks!

Measure it. You'll wanna measure the end to end length both up and down, should be close. Then a trip to the hardware store you'll find lots of springs, with a little good judgement it's easy to pick one out that's slightly shorter and not too stiff.

Thanks for the reply, ya that's how I did it. Post to hook in the shortest geometry distance (when it's kicked up/back) is right at what looks to be 100mm. For whatever reason the ACE (my only stocked hardware store) had been picked over for springs. Best match I could find was a 3.5"x.5" OD spring. ALMOST works, just not enough compression when kicked up. They were out of 3.25"x.5" and 3"x.5" so time to drive further and see if anyone else has em.

Point of thread was to see if anyone knew the Pacer spec one, and I'd just be lazy and order one off mcmaster.

Why not just cut the 'long' spring you have to the length you need ?

That's my plan first, I started on it, but it was late. Them springs are hard to cut/bend, need to bust out the dremel.
