Center Stand Motech vs Suzuki
I bought my pre-owned 03 VS 1000 with a Suzuki center stand already installed. I had the MoTech crash guards and skid plate installed by a local Suzuki dealer. The Suzuki stand wasn't compatable with the Skip plate and had to be removed. I later bought and installed the Motech center stand myself. I don't like the Motech center stand as much as the Suzuki because it is positioned further towards the back of the bike and is much easier to be pushed forwad off the stand. It is easier to pull the bike upon the stand , which is good, but I feel it is less stable than the Suzuki stand. I experienced the difference between the two stands when I was changing my back tire and the bike fell off the stand. I had changed my back tire before with the Suzuki satnd and did't have the same problem. Now I must brace the front of the bike when I change my tires to insure it doesn't fall forward off the stand. I would like to reinstall the Suzuki stand but I am not sure how to modify it to work with the Motech skid plate.
Has anyone had a similar problem , or has any suggestions on how to modify the MoTech or the Suzuki stand I would appreciate your advice.
