H+B centerstand is quality. Works as if factory, well thought out and designed.

I've had good luck with the HB stand. Be sure to adjust it where it tucks up high.

Also, you may have to grind off the foot bottoms a little to make it plant square when deployed.

There's one on ebay right now too but it seems priced at full retail, $266.

Doing the wiring mods right now and you guys have talked me into the center stand. *sigh*

I've added the Eastern Beaver 3 fuse panel. One for my heated gear and a cigarette plug just in case. I may not even put a fuse in that one until I need it, though. Still need to pull the rear apart again to get to the tail light wiring. Adding an extra LED brake light down below the license plate. I think the bicycle blocks too much of the other brake light for comfort.

Had to take the fake tank cover off to route the straps for my Wolfman tank bag through the frame. Man, that was annoying to get the straps through there. Now I'm also not sure what to do with them if I go without the bag to keep them from flapping around up there.

I can see light at the end of the farkled-up tunnel!

Another worthwhile thing to do as you modify the XCo is to add support for the plastic rear fender. During off-road use it will flop around, up and down and sideways.

This is addressed in past threads.

Some folks fashion an external bracket on both sides of the fender to add rigidity. I opted for adding aluminum struts out of sight underneath the fender that add ample support to stop the fender flop.

Good idea, especially since I have the weight of four of those little round reflectors and now this LED bar on the BOTTOM lip of that fender. I wondered how much it moved around. Definitely seems flimsy as it is.

I've got some aluminum stock, so this won't be a big deal to do while I'm all up in it.

There's a video somewhere showing an XCo in action and you can see the fender flopping around.

In the aluminum rear subframe that I have only see the front screw hole of the piece.
To the rear screw will have to be some workaround.
That piece was to cover the carbon filter that requires the U.S. market for the reuse of gasoline fumes.
Here in Europe you can get at any BMW dealer.
I like without the piece jejejejeje.

I might probably look into buying other parts like #3 as well and screws. Unfortunatly, I don't have examples here in Europe so I can check out how this things are mounted. Also, parts assembling on the picture is not so clear.

Part # 3 is not really so.
But if you put the fuel tank back you can not put both the part # 3 with clamps.
The measures of the clamps is different, you should buy the two equal 76.5 mm
I put some pictures to give you an idea. This is my old Xco (yellow)











and this photo so you can see how it would
