OEM SUZUKI DL 650 Centerstand

Finally, Finally, Finally Suzuki has released a OEM centerstand for DL 650. Available from stock (apparently), I ordered mine last Friday. Cost in Canada is about $225 (CDN).

Suzuki part number is 42100-27821

The only image I can find of it is here:

Thanks for the info...

Let me know what you think of the OEM centerstand once you get it. I'm still undecided between the OEM and the Motech centerstand :?

Cheers,
Lucky

If evolution is valid, why do I still bite my tongue occasionally?

I don't think this stand just came out.

I know a guy who bought a used 650 several months ago and his had an OEM stand

OEM Stand

Nope, as far as I know Suzuki has not offered the centerstand for this bike until now. I have been asking Suzuki since April when I bought my bike. Some people were trying to put a DL 1000 stand on it, but it didn't fit. SW Motech was really on the ball, and had a stand out for it immediately.

I installed the OEM stand this afternoon, it took about 30 minutes or so. Very good fit, the welding is so-so, but who really cares given where the part is located on the bike. Functions very well, it seems to be well balanced. Easy to lift the bike, and just the right amount of effort to push it back off the stand. On the shop floor the bike seems pretty stable. I had one part left over, it's a 10 mm flat sided stud called a "sensor", but the diagram location doesn't match my bike layout.

My riding buddy put a SW Motech stand from twisted throttle on his bike last spring, and he swears by it. The fit and finish on the MOTECH stand is superb, and he is happy with the function. A truly superior product, according to him. But landed in Canada with all taxes and exchange paid, he paid 50% more than I did.

Overall, I'd go for the OEM stand, now that they're available. I'm a cheap bastard, and it does the same job but 2/3 the price. And if I have any problems with it, I can go down the street and throw it at the parts clerk.

This might be true in U.S. but over here in Europe center stands were available already last summer. Bought my bike new in mid-June with factory center stand. And yes - it works great.

I put my DL1000 stand on my 650. The only difference that I could see was the 650 is missing a boss on the frame. All I did was add a spacer.

The bike I'm talking about was in Ontario so either it had a DL1000 stand retrofitted, he has a SW Motech stand and doesn't know it or your dealer is wrong. I'm pretty sure the dealer in Kingston where I bought mine offered me the stnad in about May. I had installed an SW motech in April

Now I know the Australian dealers are really stealers, they want $450 here for a suzuki centre stand, our dollar is only 77 US cents but even still $450 seems a bit rude when the whole bike costs $9990 new :x

Re. centre stand discussion

The centre stand was offered in the UK for the 650 a while ago. List price at the end of last year was 123 GBP, plus VAT, however that compares with Aussie dollars? Still sounds a lot to me; SW Motech was even dearer, but looked better made. I bought a Motrax paddock stand for 26 GBP to do the maintenance. Not so convenient, but a bloody sight cheaper. :lol:
