I keep hearing this noise and I think this is what it is. My chain is rubbing on to my center stand. It's this the way it's suppose to be?

After fully inspecting the center stand I noticed that the screw and nut on the right hand side of the center stand came off, which caused it to shift. I'm positive that I tightened both sides of the center stand.

Anyone know the size of the screw and nut? Getting that center stand on was hell, so I would like to avoid taking it off.

I placed a screw on the left side to hold the center stand to the frame while taking the left hand screw out. I totally forgot how this screw looked and it's no way I'm getting this at my local hardware store :oops:

You can get those from Yamaha. Check The Wall for the center stand topic. It has the part numbers.

I'd have posted the link for you but I'm at the airport and doing this on my phone. Glad you found it. Hope it isn't too expensive!

Do you have a local dealer? You might be able to have them order it to avoid the shipping charge. Even if they mark it up a couple dollars, it'd still likely be cheaper than the $8 shipping charge.

Speed, I already placed the order. But in the future I will consider going to my local dealer which is 10 mins away from me. I'm so use to doing everything online.
