SW-Motech Center Stand & Touratech Skidplate work!

Neither SW-Mototech (centerstand) or Touratech (skidplate) could confirm they could be installed together. I'm here to tell you they work just fine together. Both are great products so check them out!

Pics below:

Cheers Bob!

Thanks for the information Bob.

I updated the website to reflect the fitment notes. Unrelated to your research we have also figured out the the centerstand will not work with the Hindle full system either.

Are there any cornering clearance problems with the centerstand installed on the bike?

+1. I have this same combination and think both items are good choices, look and work well together.

Kevin,

Any idea on the compatibility of this center stand with the AltRider skid plate? It doesn't appear than anyone has posted anything about the combination. I would like to get you center stand, but am worried about shipping it back if it doesn't work. I see you have a 60-day return policy for items in "new condition." Is there packaging that I would have to open or destroy to test fit the stand, and would it no longer be "new" if I did that?

I am willing to test fit it and give you the feedback one way or the other, if I am not out much if it doesn't fit. Looking at the photos of the center stand and the skid plate I have, I think it should work.

Future thoughts: Windscreen? Exhaust? Hand guards? Heated grips? Accessory power? GPS Mount?
