10 mm difference would be about right.

I get a length of 295 mm on my C and 300 on one of my standards with a tape measure but the C is sitting on a sheet of cardboard that the stand has pushed into so 10 mm is likely close to correct

This is measured from the pivot centre to the ground.

You have gone to the underside, I went to the centre of the pivot pin on the left side.

I can't agree, both based on my own measurements and the two different part numbers...

The standard gives a 415 part number and the custom a 449.

I have 2 Cs here. Both have shorter centrestands than my standards.

The middle three digits of the part numbers refer to the bike the part originates on.

The 415 number in the middle of part numbers refers to the original CX500.

The 449 numbers refer to parts altered or developed for the C and D models.

The part numbers in this instance will not change without the part being altered in some way.

My measurements tell me the C stand is shorter though the change in number could also have been generated if the kicker was changed to fit around a different muffler.

Both of my Cs have shorter centre stands than my standards.

I've never encountered a 505 part number on these - though some parts like the special clutch plate originate in other machines and are numbered as such. In the case of the plate 286 refers back to its first use on a cb450 dohc.

The 505 is stand "complete" maybe a part number associated with extra bits??...
Edit as attaced..sorry screen shot only.. std general export...

That number is 415. For originating cycle we look at the middle sequence.

Rectangle Font Screenshot Parallel Number


The first sequence says what the part is, the second what bike it is originally from and the last often to who made it and sometimes the colour.
