I did a quick search for 'industrial springs' in my area (Minneapolis) and found a supplier that likely would have a replacement. My side stand spring is a bit weak; I plan to replace it sometime this year and will start with the company I found. Things like springs and bearings are often way cheaper from industrial suppliers and one can usually find an identical replacement.

Make sure that you get both springs, one inside the other.

My center stand spring got caught when I had the bike on a jack. Stretched out the spring. Supposedly, replacements aren't available. Anyone have an idea on cobbling one up?
Here in the U.K. Triumph have been replacing side stand springs on Thruxtons as a factory modification. I would be very surprised if springs are not available in the U.K. Maybe try one of the UK based triumph parts specialists?

I'll have to ask the dealer about it. They told me you couldn't buy it separately a few years ago. I wish I had come back here a couple days ago. I just put in an order that shipped today.
I guess I’d just order off of here, it’s cheap enough...

If shippings a problem on a new one let me know. I have an old one in the garage you can have, I'll stick it in an envelope to ya.
