Vstroma Centerstand...will it fit?

Hey guys. Is anyone out there using this centerstand on the new 650's? I have a 2013 and was wondering if it would work...or what you needed to do to make it work. I thought I read that it had something to do with the rubber stopper, but not sure.

Thanks,
Russ

Right. It will fit, but it won't have a stop.

Pat- 2007 DL650A was ridden to all 48 contiguous states. I didn't quite make it to 17,000 miles on the 2012 DL650A.

Do you have one? So is it like no big deal to fabricate something?

I installed a SW Motech center stand on mine; also a 2013 DL650ABS; and it works great. I used it today to change the oil and clean and lube the chain.

I'm sorry. I think that I missed something and just made a useless reply.

I haven't done it myself. Others who have wrote it was not difficult to make a stop.

A stainless steel exhaust clamp, two extra nylock nuts and some 3mm rubber sheet.

You'll need to hacksaw one of the 'bolt' ends on the clamp down, but that's about it.

I sounds like an easy project.

Can someone post a picture of the finished stop?

Thanks
