F650GS Lowered Version. No Centerstand?

Hey guys. I did a seat test on an F650GS today. Bike feels good. I noticed there is no centerstand. What's up with that?

Thanks,

Mike

Center stand is a $170 option.

Thanks. Do you know if the option fits with the lower frame?

No it won't. At least the BMW stand won't fit. Although you can get a SW Motech stand and modify it but cutting off a bit and resoldering the "feet".

SW_Motech centerstand will work but must be cut down

I installed the SW-Motech centerstand on my wife's F650GS twin and cut off about 1-1/2" to make it work. Would fit stock, but was very hard to lift up on the stock length.

I have the BMW center stand on my lowered 650 twin. It takes a little more effort to get it up on the stand, but otherwise, does the job just fine.
