Do you have a pair of engineer's dividers? If so, put one point on the centre of the bolt and the other on the centre of the hex screw. Lock the dividers then use a rule to measure the distance between the divider tips.

I no longer have a Strom otherwise I'd go and measure mine.

I don't know if you use the same terms for tools as us but these are what we call "dividers".

Also, the distance is probably a whole number of millimeters. Engineers aren't going to use a fractional distance for something as crude as the center stand. For example, the distance might be 155 mm instead of 155.734 mm.

Measured on my '16 650 to be exactly 70mm between the center of the two bolts. Hope that works for you and good luck!

Its hard for me to fathom being able to fabricate a homemade center stand but cannot figure out how to measure the distance between the centerline of 2 fasteners.
