    This might already be common knowledge but I did not see it anywhere. When installing the springs on the OEM center stand do not install the rubber bump stop till after you install the springs. Being able to swing the stand up a little closer to the frame makes the distance you have to stretch...

    Hello any advice on center stands that won't break the bank? Or is there anyone out there selling one used etc? I have 2005 vstrom 1000. My email is [email protected] Thank you.

    Hello all, I recently installed a SW motech center stand on my new to me 2009 v-strom 650. The install went fine, but there was no place to put my bump stop. I've circled the bracket and parts I'm talking about. Any ideas on solutions so my center stand sits where it's supposed to?

    I purchased a used Hepco-Becker center stand for my 2006 Wee. Unfortunately the bumper was missing and Hepco Becker doesn't carry the product any longer. Does anyone on the forum have one that they're willing to part with? If so, name your price! Other suggestions would be welcome too. Thanks to...

    Hey everyone. Looking for advice. Ordered a SW Motech center stand for my 2017 V-Strom 650 from F9. Received it well ahead of schedule. Opened the box and it says 2011- on the label on the plastic packaging. F9 say it's the correct part, dealer says they are the same from 2012 onwards, 2011 is...

    Hey people :-) Returning rider with a new-to-me 2017 650XT, in Vancouver BC Canada. All my bikes before this had center stands, nowadays they're extra,uh. Looking for a stand that must work and be secure first and foremost, for chain maintenance, etc. Hoping not to break the bank if it's...

    I need a crash course (Bad choice of wording?) regarding Crash Bar, Center Stand & Skid Plate for '18 DL1K XT. Leave for NV ride on Aug 4th (75% of road). Does SWMotech, GIVI or other... offer all three as compatible system? Am I to mix and match suppliers? Do I assume all '14 yrs and above...

    Greetings. I'm a newb to motorcycles (used to trail ride) and the V-strom. I am planning a moto/camping trip in a month or so, and am thinking about how to set-up my suspension for the load. Also, I'd like to know how to make rough adjustments for taking the odd passenger here and there. I have...

    I need a center stand. My 08 DL650A is lowered 5/8". I tried a Happy Trails stand but it dragged on turns. Who makes a stand that tucks up tight under the bike??

    I've been "using" you all for some time now to grow my knowledge. It's now my turn to ask a specific question. I have a Vee k6 and purchased a V-Stroma center stand which is a Suzuki OEM knock off. Same with Murphy's as I understand. My problem is the mating plate on my vee has an extension...

    I need a center stand and skid/bash plate for my very new 2014 1000 Adventure. No centerstand came with it and the polastic mud guard below is pretty crappy. I was looking at either the OEM stand or SWMotoTech stand. Suggestions? I also want a bash plate that is not real hard to change the...

    Hi all, I own a 2011 Wee and I am a big guy (6' 4"). I really love my bike, but I have a few issues with the seat to footpegs distance and the seat height. The seat to footpegs distance issue I got solved by installing richlandrick's footpeg and controls lowering kit. It was a worth every...

    Wise ones- Proud owner of an '09 DL650 and I just installed a Murph's center stand. After a bit of filing, I got it moving easily and smoothly and I can easily get the bike ON the stand. Here's my concern: It seems too easy to take the bike off the stand. It seems like a gentle shove from...

    I went with the 650 adventure right off the bat to get the big things out of the way- namely the luggage. With these cold spring mornings here in the mountains of nc, i had to get a set of hand guards, decided to go frugal and get the oems off eBay @ 60.00, maybe ill have some bucks left to get...

    I bought the centerstand for my DL1000 used, and it didn't come with the rubber stopper for the bottom of the exhaust. Does anyone know where I could find one? I checked with my local dealer and they don't have them, and I haven't found them online yet. Thanks! Mike

    I mounted the SW Motech skid plate, crash guards, center stand, and side racks yesterday on a 2012 650. Here's a few things to consider. This was my first use of SW Motech accessories and they seem pretty well made. If you are going to mount the skid plate and center stand, do the skid plate...

    Ordered a center stand from these people, in August, knowing it was back ordered, but the product looked good and the price was about $20 less than others that I'd seen. They never once contacted me after notice that they had received my money. I have contacted them repeatedly, three time...

    Hey everyone - I just picked up and installed a center stand from Murph's Kits on my 2006 Wee. I was really impressed with the quality of the hardware and stand. The bike is very, very stable on the stand so it seems very strong. I think it's an exact copy of the OEM. For $122 shipped, I don't...

    Vstromma sells a center stand for about $100. Has anyone bought one and used it. If so please give feedback.
