Inelastic electron scattering cross sections, measured for 14C Jπ = 4- states at 11.7, 17.3, and 24.3 MeV, have been combined with previously measured (π, π') cross-section ratios to deduce the isoscalar and isovector amplitudes of the spin transition densities. The T = 1 states exhaust (33-45)% of the isovector single-particle strenght, and (1-15)% of the isoscalar strength. Pion scattering cross sections for the T = 2, 4- state 24.3 MeV are predicted.
