SO, I was thinking of doing some solo time on the Ural after I get some new tires, but I have dual pipes and can't reach the center stand with my foot. In addition, I can't get it up onto the stand anyway. Jaspers a bit too heavy. Anyone put a "jiffy" stand on (as they were called in the UK)?

Hi Chriso:
I use a short (3ft) length of 2X4. I back the rear wheel of the bike onto the 2X4. This raises the height of the bike sufficiently where I can then engage the center stand as I then move the bike forward. I then put away the 2X4.

There's piece you have to weld on the frame near the front motor mount.  Then you can mount a proper Ural sidestand.  Mr Crawford has all the parts you'll need.

You can get CJ kickstands for about $15-$30.
I haven't installed mine yet. As far as I know, no welding required.

I'm british, with british motorcycles, and I have never heard this term either.
It may stem from the phrase "back in a jiffy" - which means "back in a moment".

My Cj750 came with the CJ750 sidestand.
ural zentrale stand (CJ750)
oldtimer stand (same thing)

bloody awful.
Made the bike stand up really high. Cut a bit off and it still wasn't right, to the extent that the bike went over a couple of times.
However, it does NOT require welding as it fits between the engine and the frame (replaces the spacer) so could form the basis for a redesign.
I replaced with a modd'ed second hand BMW surefoot stand.

There is a Ural/dnepr stand that fitted the same way, but was actually longer and did it's job well.
I know this as I had a dnepr with one on and my mate's M66 also has one.
Not seen one for sale for a while but they do come up on EBAY (usually ebay.de) every now and then.

Harley-Davidson refers to "Jiffy Stands" in all their literature.

The side stand I bought from Terry Crawford is awesome.  Very strong, and blessedly adjustable for length, so one can dial-in the correct lean angle for your tires and suspension (or lack thereof, in my case).

bugger me - now that's a practical stand !!! Adjustable eh ........

Does it bolt on (i.e. no welding) and how much was it ...

It's a rare day that I wish I lived in America, but that stand almost made me consider it  :feelssogood:

The front motor mount stud passes through it, but it must be welded to the frame.  I think I made two passes with an 1/8" 7028 electrode at around 120 amps.

I can't remember the cost, but Im sure it was less than $50 all in.

These are standard Ural Wolf/Voyager parts, so I'm sure David & Lizzie at F2 Cycles could get them for you.

My '05 Troyka has a sidestand for when it is run solo. Seems like you should be able to post a parts wanted ad and ask someone if they have one or find a dealer who has spares and carries such. Not sure which other Urals came with them, but I am sure some did other than just the Troykas. Wolf or such?
My opinions are all vast, but, unfortunately, your's are only half-vast.

I actually have a couple of side stands for sale!
One center stand with springs and a side stand. I use my sidecar, so no need for either!

side stands are a blessing, or can be hell on soft ground or in a rainy period. HD's are a very heavy bike and as such lead  the way for a long time in side stand design. especially in the selection of lenght of the stand "rod". makeing it long enuff, with afoot pad can save a lot of cussin and grunting when it falls over. even a 500cc rig can be a gut buster when you reach the delicate years, such as I. Son Chris, deals in Suzi GT 750 parts, had a number of side stands that worked out for me.......Ken
