Seems that's a fair price for a center stand. Buddy had to replace the broken stand on his Stelvio and it was about that price.
Too bad they don't come stock on bikes like they used to. Yeah, and Spoke wheels too!

Do you have links? Bikebandit shows $272.20 for the OEM centerstand and $243.95 for the aftermarket moose racing centerstand.

Also,this item is not in stock and is back-ordered.

Muahaha I got it for $190 ish with shipping. Oddly enough I couldn't get the site to work with Google Chrome, had to switch to Firefox. Still trying to find the 12volt adapter on the site for the bike.

Edit: I'm an idiot, ordered the wrong stand. Doh! Got the order cancelled, but now I've missed the sale :-(

The final discount didn't show until I got in to the checkout process.

The OEM stuff they sell is always out of stock and back ordered because they don't stock OEM parts. I've ordered a bunch of OEM stuff from them and it doesn't usually take more than a week or so to get it. That's also why they have a restocking fee for OEM stuff and not aftermarket. If you look at the FAQ page on their site they explain that stuff.

This has been one of the last bigger ticket items I wanted for the bike. I've had a floor stand and spools for parking in the garage and maintenance, but it only works in the garage. Looking forward to having one with me all the time.

It seems everyone agrees the OEM stand is the best and most sturdy, but very pricey.

This deal put it within about $20 of the SW Motech stand (assuming free shipping), so I couldn't resist.

Great deal on the cowling too and any other of the pricier OEM stuff.

Thanks again!
