Hi all,

For a rigid M20, can anyone tell me where on the frame rail (ie position front-back) a clamp-on sidestand should be fitted, and what sort of lean angle I'm going for?

Thanks,

Luke

Hahaha! The machinery handbook states "jaunty" as between 15.2 and 17.8 degrees from vertical. Does that sound about right?
