Its a tight fit. Remove the fork brace. Use tie wraps at the bottom of the fork boots, and fight to get the fork brace back in place. It can be done.

You can order that part from Max. No need to order the mirror. That part is expensive. If I remember correctly, around $18. Might as well buy a different mirror.

Depends on the bike. I have had much heavier bikes than the 650, and had NO
problems getting them on the centerstand. I think the Japanese do a way better job with this.
