Hope it works as well as the SW Motech. I love the ease with which it works even loaded for traveling.

Hello! I bought and installed this same center stand earlier this spring and have been more than impressed with the quality. Fairly easy installation, and ease of use! I also bought a radiator guard from this company that also was good quality. Both excellent "bang for your buck" options! Looking at getting their skid plate next... we will see how that is!

Wow, this looks awesome. Looks like that would be around $110 US and then another almost $50 to ship. Thanks for sharing!

Dang, I wish I had seen this before I ordered mine. The thing looks sturdy. Fleabay's got 'em for $119 + $40 shipping. That's way better than the $255 I shelled out for OEM.

If you're not living on the edge, you're taking up too much space.

Tools used: 17mm socket, 13mm socket, extension bar, Allen key (the rubber bump-stop bracket is pre-assembled, but needs to be removed to allow for fitting one of the bolts), spring puller. thread lock. Thinking about it, I may have used a spanner on one upper bolt, as the exhaust prohibited using the ratchet wrench.

Looks great! What do you think about it? Feel sturdy? Easy to get the bike up on it? If you like it and have no concerns, I'm likely going to order one.

Only tried it up and down once in the garage. As easy to lift as any other bike I've tried. Usual procedure...left hand on handlebar, right foot on stand lever, right hand on grab-rail. Stand on foot lever whilst lifting rear up and back by the grab-rail...and up it goes. Gave it a fair old push/pull on the bars. Solid. Didn't even move. So, short answer...easy to get bike up, and well sturdy.
