Any advantage of Suzuki vs. SW-Motech center stands? I'm looking around for a best price scenario. Found an OEM for $255 all in. I've found SW for about $300+ after S/H. I've checked out the model mentioned in another thread, going for $115+, but I'll stick to name brand on this component.
I know this doesn't answer your question. But I have had the happy-trail center stand for the last year or so and It's been great. Super sturdy and well made. I don't have any experience with the other ones so I can't speak as to how they compare but so far I've not had any issues.
I've got the SW Motech and it works very well except the side stand will keep it from retracting entirely unless I get off the center stand first.
I can easily get the bike on the center stand even when loaded for camping. That's handy!
It was on the bike when I got it.
