I also have a Suzuki center stand and it was part of the bike purchase. My tires have seen the very edge, my bike is lowered and I have scraped nothing. YMMV

I installed the OEM Suzuki stand- Oneida Suzuki is the least expensive place I found- $178- $192 w/shipping. I have yet to drag it- though I've tried!

I also got my Suzuki stand from Oneida. It offers more stability because it is wider and its higher up than the SW stand.

I went with the Suzuki stand ordered from Oneida (along with some other stuff). It seems well made for the bike and is very stable, although installing the springs was life-threatening.

I did notice a significant reduction in lean angle on the left, at least if you install the longer footpeg warning feeler. I"ve cranked up the preload and hang off a little on left-handers and it's acceptable, if less than optimal.

Sounds like the Suzuki stand wins the vote. How much cheaper is the Onieda dealer vs my local dealer? Did any of you do a price check? I am assuming this dealer specializes in internet parts orders to make it cheaper?

I think it's something like $150 vs. $220, but there's shipping and tax to consider too. You can look the prices up as easily as I can.

Yes, Oneida is a Suzuki dealer that has decided to specialize in volume internet sales and prices accordingly.
