Accessories for a 2012 650 Adventure

Hi my name is Kevin and I am a new member. Last Saturday I bought a new 2012 V Strom 650 Adventure and I was wondering where I could get a Tank Bra for my bike. The only ones I have found are for 2011 and below. I would also like to get a Center Stand for the bike; does anyone have any recommendations?
Thanks, Kevin

Kevin,

Welcome to the forum and congratulations on your new purchase. I've not found a supplier that carries a tank bra that fits the 2012. That's not to say ones not available, I just quit looking.

Center stands you have many options. I personally put the SW Motech on my 2012 650 Adventure and am very happy with it. It performs it's primary duty well, allowing me to service my chain with ease. Ride safe and enjoy you new baby.

You'll find a good discussion on center stand options here:

Thanks all for your help, I am going to use the V Strom for a commuter bike. I will be traveling about 90 miles round trip.

I read the other post with respect to center stands and make note of the following.

I'm not sure why you'd be paying $ 325 or so in the US for the stock Suzuki stand, when we in Canada can get them for around $ 260. I made a deal when I bought my bike and got the stand for 30 % off so it cost me considerably less.
