I have a 2003 DL1000 with a SW Motech center stand installed. The best thing about the SW Motech stand it that it doesn't reduce your lean angle clearance on the left side when you are riding. However, if or when you have to remove the rear shock absorber from the bike the SW Motech will have to be removed from the bike in order to drop the unbolted shock out of the bottom of the bike. With the Suzuki OEM stand you can leave the stand in place and drop the shock out without any problem.I'm getting ready to buy a center stand, can someone give me some pros / cons on the Zuki vs. the SW-Motech?
Both should be fine. I have the sw motech.
Plan ahead and research. Just make sure your future farkles will be compatible with each other. There are certain stands that will not work with certain skid plates.
