I am wondering if anyone has a picture or knows where the factory side stand spring attaches to on a bmw r69. Any help would be great. Thanks!

It attaches to the little eyelet on the left rear corner of the factory stamped steel oil pan.
If you have a aftermarket aluminum deep sump pan I’m not sure there’s any attachment point on those.

Not sure about the R69, but

Not sure about the R69, but might be the same as the R69S. My OEM oil pan has a welded on tab. Here's a picture showing the left rear of the pan….looking straight up...the front of the bike is to the right. The spring goes through the hole in the tab.
