Please excuse my crap drawing but I'm sitting in the dark drawing this before I go to bed. The XS750 stand just needs the blank shank of a 8 or 10 mm bolt of the correct width welded across the u of the stand fixes the angle . Photos to follow.

Braved the cold and went out before sunrise to power up the indicator led. Good light output but won't be distracting bright at night.

Received this e-mail from Williams this morning.

That is a stock 76 stand on top..¹ the bend is factory and now I see why I never like that stand cuz it always felt like if the bike rolled forward it was going to fall off of it.I thinking that I like the 750 stand better.

I smoke the full flavor red and whites. When my girlfriend runs out and gets desperate she will bum one from me. She doesn't like mine because they knock her flat on her back for half an hour. I don't mind her smoking one of mine
.
I have smoked most of my life and it is catching up with me now. Do what you want but consider moderating or quitting. I go to my brother's place about noon each day and steal 3 of his. 3 months ago I would have been through 10 or 15 cigs by noon. I will not preach, I only say I should have been smarter or stronger...

I did this on a bike , XJ650RJ, and it seemed I had lost pressure after a long afternoon in the twisties.
These are XJ700 X forks so are pretty similar to the XJ650 forks. I think it is a max of 10 PSI if memory serves but the springs are stiff for the weight of the 650 vs. the 700 so I doubt I'll be pumping them up.
