Gotta agree,...in my 57 years of motorcycling this is the easiest stand to use,...and it goes "over-centre" noticeably which is a safety feature. Maybe some engineers actually looked at the physics when doing the redesign!!!

Parts

Took my Vee home before the center stand came in. Here's all the parts it comes with.
The springs where fun.

I went with the stocker. I liked the looks of the extra support bar on the leg.

Super easy to raise the bike.

I used a strong piece of string and a long screwdriver with the rear wheel as leverage to get the springs on.

I have a 2006 DL 1000, only options for a center stand seem to be Krauser and SW Motech, about the same price. Any advice to choose between the two

I used quarters in between each spring link and it went on easily!
I had a problem with the stock center stand for some reason. One side was longer than the other! I took it to the dealer and they checked it and agreed it was wrong. They replaced it and that one was also put together wrong. So, they refunded the cost and I went with an SW Motech. It works well and lifts easily. Must have just been a bad batch of center stands I guess. But, he quarter trick works well!

I suppose i should check mine too. I noticed it was kind of odd when it goes up on the stand, it kind of slides a little. Seems to sit up straight. Maybe it was purpose built on a bit of an angle?

Sales manager let me have it for $185. Should have been standard, but oh well.

Now, that's what we should have been paying. But, what's done is done and like everyone else, I can't bitch about the ease of use or quality.
