Has anybody else used these bolt on side stand with good luck? I'm assuming I would just clamp it on as far up and close to the factory frame mount as possible for balance and continute to monitor those bolts are tight and it's not moving around after some miles.

Also for a 73 T140v, do you know what size I would need? 7/8 in,1 in, 1/1/4 in?

Thanks

Unless the back of the clamp is welded to the frame the bike will fall over
You would be better getting a modern stand with bracket and bolting it to an engine mount or similar

I've used similar bolt on sidestands for years, the main issue is the quality of the bolts used to clamp the stand together, and also the metal threads in the clamp are poor and the bike will sometimes tip over due to lack of clamping.

These stands work well enough if the bolts and clamp are in good order, if not its welll worth using a thread recoil insert and new high quality tensile bolts which wont strip.

Yeah after looking at a few of the designs I think I'm just going to bite the bullet and buy a new OEM style one.

Currently my lug on the frame is OK but my actual stand is aftermarket with a nut poorly welded to it for a bolt to be threaded in and hold the spring. It looks awful and I don't trust it so I think it's just time to do it right.

If there's nothing wrong with your lug on the frame, just find a standard OEM stand. They are cheap
