Thumb Center Stand



You can get it here:

I have one installed on mine. Works pretty good. Oil the chain by yourself, and replace a tube on the trail.

Better than logs or rocks!!!

I remember reading about one hear, probably somewhere in this thread, but there were reports that it was not stable. You had any issues with yours?

It went on very easy and seems very well made. It however doesn't seem as stable as centerstands on other bikes (1150 GS, 990ADV, 640 ADV). When I say that, I mean that you have to put a bit of effort into getting it of the stand on those bigger bikes. It seems perfectly functional to me as far as being able to do a little service work or just for storage.

Are you planning to remove the kickstand?

Thanks! I'm having a blast on it... I definitly need to come up with a good bracket that will tidy up the rear end better.

I got a piece of blue 1/8 inch thick flexible plastic from a plastic company, cut a piece that ends up about 6 inches taller than the stock and bolted it on. it seems to break enough wind to help on the road, but does not get in the way off road.

Levity informed me to use a laminar lip off of the Funduro. Don't know if that is really going to work and don't want to waste $85.

Anybody have any other idea's for a windscreen? I will be patiently waiting for replies.

Thanks
