You might want to change the label into 'Commando 73 onwards prop stand spring' if you don't want it hanging in your shop for another 35 years :mrgreen:

Last night after a good few off and ons with the Spring I took it off bent it slightly put it back on tried it and it was still catching. Screwed the Jack down and left the bike on the c/s came in and posted.

Went out tonight to try again up on the Jack and now it is only rubbing and is working fine! Must be the fairies......

WOT that doesn't look anything like mine or Daves c/s Spring it looks more like a side stand Spring but I have been wrong on numerous occasions before.

I believe you are correct that is a '71-'75 side stand spring.

Yes, I thought I had a picture of that spring clearing the bolt head.
