I've done the search and can't find the OEM Suzuki center stand. Anyone got a part number and a price?
TIA Ian, Iowa
Suzuki Cycles - Product Lines - Cycles - Products - V-Strom 650 - 2013 - DL650A - Accessories - General - 42100-06860

Part #: 42100-06860
$327.95

Consider SW-MOTECH Centerstand (Suzuki DL650 V-Strom, '12-) - V-Strom DL650, '12- - Suzuki - Shop by Bike - TwistedThrottle.com too though. I'm happy with mine and it costs $179.99.

Pat- 2007 DL650A was ridden to all 48 contiguous states. 2012 DL650A didn't quite make it to 17,000 miles.
Nicknames I use to lessen typing, Vee = 2002-2012 DL1000s. Vee2=2014+ DL1000s. Wee = 2004-2011 DL650s. Glee = 2012+ DL650s

The new happy trails version looks like a winner as well. Save the difference and buy something else.

Do notice the H-T stand only has a single connection between the left and right legs while others also have a top connection. Don't be rough with the bike on the stand.

Thanks for the replies.

Here's what I've learned reading the threads:
Murphs (great people to deal with) new/better model coming out.
SWMoto-easy install, harder to deploy (especially on a lowered bike), less
stable.
Happy trails-bitch to put on, not easy to align.
Suzuki OEM-the best? but $75-150 more?

Thanks to the info on this board, getting 0% financing for 60 months-may outlast me, I'm 71.

Any rebates on the 2012 models? Thanks again, Ian

Have two MURPH's center stands. one for the '08 wee, another for '12 wee. Look just like the suzuki oem but are much cheaper. And murph will stand behind his product !!!

The S.W. Motech is a lot easier to deploy on a stock height bike than a Suzuki o.e.m. stand and is made better-I've had both on two different Stroms. Cheers--BB

Also, while the stance on the SW-M is narrower, there's no way I would call it unstable. Mine's on a 3/4" lowered bike and this 67 year old has no trouble with it using three full pieces of luggage.

I put a Suzuki factory stand on my 09 and was so disappointed in the paint job that I repainted it before install. On my future 2013 I plan on getting the SWMotech. I have had other products from them and was always impressed with design and finish.

I disagree with the HT sumary. The HT stand fit on my bike very well, I did not go with Murphs because I'd still be waiting for the '12 redesign. The HT does not contact anything else on the bike. I did not have problems with the fit, I had problems with overspray in the factory frame mounting holes. I found the instructions were wrong, but contacted HT - they agreed and corrected. As for stregnth. I am very confident in the HT construction, and it supports the bike fine with me on it. Best part for me was the price compared to stock; very resonable and it does the business.
