Center stand ID

My used 650 came with a center stand and I'm wondering if anyone knows how to identify the manufacturer.

These are the only pictures I have right now, I'll get more if needed. I was just wondering if there were any easily identifiable features that would allow someone to distinguish between makers.

That's an SW-Motech stand.

Pat- 2007 DL650A was ridden to all 48 contiguous states. I didn't quite make it to 17,000 miles on the 2012 DL650A.
Nicknames I use to lessen typing, Vee = 2002-2012 DL1000s. Vee2=2014-2016 DL1000s. Wee = 2004-2011 DL650s. Glee = 2012-2016 DL650s

What feature allows you to identify it?

So it seems.

Here is a Wiki page with known center stands for the V-Stroms:

2011 DL-650A, Now owned by another stromtrooper

Thanks for the link to the wiki page, that'll give me some reading material for a while.

It looks like all the stands on that page have a curved lever (for putting the stand down). You can't see the entire lever in the picture, since the one on my bike has a straight lever I assume it's the only one that is built that way.

All the tubing is straight. Every other make has bends.
