Centerstand Dragging?

I don't have a OEM centerstand on my wee because I read about it dragging when the bike is leaned over hard on turns.Has anyone had a problem with this?

I have a problem finding clean enough pavement to allow me to drag the centerstand!! Never had this happen! I don't think you need to concern yourself with the clearance issue.

It can happen

I have minor drag marks on my center stand as well as the lower part of the pipe on the right side of the bike. Will post pictures if you like.

It is possible but not highly likely... I have never felt like was levering the rear end either so i don't think I would sweat if I were you.
