Skid plate and center stand with full Leo Vince

So, I've finally solved the problem of the center stand and oil filer protection on my "07 Wee... the full leo vince system has a wicked bend in it on the rear cylinder that makes most stock and aftermarket plates and stands uninstallable. But after a bit of trial and error, I got the following bits to fit:

SW/Motech Center Stand... I had to grind the top spring peg a bit to get it all to fit and fabricate a stop that bolted into the LV's unused sensor hold.

After trying the Pat Walsh and the SW/Motech skidplates, I finally bit the bullet and bought the Pyramid belly pan. I did have to take the dremel to the pan and trim a few bits, as the LV system comes out farther on the front and side that the stock system. I don't plan on a whole lot of offroading so it should do nicely. I'm going to partner it with a fenda extenda and call it good. I'll try to get pics this weekend.

Hi Lono,
Thanks for the posting. I've been wondering which skidplate and centerstand would work with the LV exhaust system on the 06 WeeStrom I just bought.

Had you tried the Hepco Becker centerstand? Chad at Amotostuff thought it would fit without modification.

I've also had emails back and forth with Pat Walsh who thinks his crash bars and skid plate would work with the Wee's LV exhaust pipes. Had you or anyone else PW's setup?

$175 for a fiberglass bellypan? Ouch. I'm tempted to install a fenda extenda (which I'll do anyway) and fabricate a cover for the oil filter and call that "good." The oil cooler already has a guard on it.
