Maby there is no room for a centerstand with all your luggage mods hihi.

thanks anyway all of you...
If I were going to do it (probably wouldn't as I removed the center stand on my old LC4 so I could install a side-stand), I would start with a metal skid-plate (I use a Flatland on my 690) and weld up an "H" stand out of small size tubing. Then weld rod tabs to the top of each side of the H. The rods would fit inside two short pieces of tube (sized to make a simple plain bearing) which would be welded/bolted to the bottom rear part of the skid-plate. Use something simple (KTM rubber band) to hold the stand up. Should only decrease ground clearance by 3/4" as measured from under the foot-pegs.
