Mike, thanks for the advice. I surfed the net for tips...and I finally found the right technique to center stand my bike. Combination of rocking, strong foot push, firm right hand grip at the right area and a straight back (important to prevent back sprains).. My bike is equipped with a pair of 1430 pelican pannier and a top box, and with road tires (shorter ground clearance), hence posed a challenge initially.... I'm all happy now

That is good to hear. I would like to see what your rig looks like. Could you post a picture? Or send a picture to me?

I would like to mention that if you want a center stand and the bike has been modified very much. Let me know. I can make some minor adjustments that make the stand work a little better for your particular bike. Custom heights and the balance point can be modified to some degree.

sure.. i post some pictures soon.. also, previously i mentioned 4 " ground clearance at rear,that was because of uneven ground... on even ground it looks to be right at 2 to 3"...

Looking Good

xrbeast,

Nice looking XR250. It looks like you have spent some time getting it set up for your needs.

Thanks for sharing the pictures.

I imagine that I could. I just don't have the time to do one for all the models requested. I hope to get to a few new models by the end of the year. Fortunately demand for the models I do make is not that great after a period of time which allows me to work on other projects.

I will add your request to the list.

Was jumping and rough trail riding all day today. No problems or noise from the center stand.

Too Much Fun?

r00t4rd3d,

There is no such thing as too much fun!

Thanks,

Mike - do you think you will be able to try and engineer a stand for US model Transalps in the coming months? I'm sure if you could make them that you'd have no problem selling a bunch.

There is an inmate that lives a little North of me and has been kind enough to offer his bike to see what I can do. I did a little bit of searching here to see what I could find out about the stands for this model. I am curious to see if what someone else has done can be used. The owner is gone for a week of river running but we are going to see what can be done when he gets back.

So I guess it is a definite "Maybe".
