SW-Motech Centerstand Stability
Just searched the achives on this subject but didn't really find anything, hence the new thread.
Just installed a SW Motech centerstand yesterday, no challenges getting it all bolted up, the fit is great and the bike virtually leaps onto the stand as it is so easy to use. However, as soon as I first put it up onto the stand in my garage, I was concerned with how "wobbly" overall the bike seemed. There just seems to be a lot of flex between the stand and the bike.
As a point of reference, I'm used to BMW centerstands which are as solid when deployed as the Rock of Gibraltar. I'm not concerned that the Strom will fall off the SW Motech unit, but it just does not have as solid a feel as what I'm used to. I actually took the bike down off the stand and checked the four mount bolts again for tightness, as something just seemed to be loose but they were all torqued up properly. Is this normal for those with the SW Motech unit, or should I truly be concerned that something funky is going on here?
Doesn't appear that I'll have any cornering clearance issues with the stand - I already routinely scrape the peg feelers in corners and am hoping that the stand doesn't detract from that at all.
There's no such thing as a bad ride, some are just better than others...
