Two is enough

I have made them when I thought there would only be one. It has more to do with time and getting my hands on a bike that determines what I am able to do. Also how complicated it looks like it may be.

Hey Mike, maybe if we looked at reversing the center-stand concept it would work...

How about a center stand that you roll the bike forward onto using the footpeg bracket as a pivot point? Just have to incorporate a "stop" for it.

The bashplate mount up front will just serve as a quick release for the stand.

The legs could/should serve triple duty as a bash plate and engine guard.

Thinking along these lines, only flip it over so the legs move forward and curve up at the front to act as an engine guard.

I reckon it would be a criminality to add the extra . what, 2-6kgs to a lively bike like this.
Even if the COG is down low.

If your worried about it falling over in day to day usage then get a 'cameltoe' or make one yourself,.
That's all it needs.

I'm not pushing the 'brand' here.
Just that credit's due.

I've had the cameltoe stand in stuff that would make a nun get to her knees, and never a tipover.

Grass, sand, whateverthephuqever, it's not rocket science.
It's just surface area.

Others i ride with whom have 'standard' stands, can't believe the extra support given by just a few extra square inches that the 'TOE' affords.

People give it shit 'cause they can, here in Aus.
That's just our nature.

The tall poppy syndrome.
It's a good product, no if's or buts about it.



If you want a stand for maintenance reasons then use a milk crate.

If you could get a bash plate, an engine guard and a center stand all in one shot, I'd say it's more than well worth considering.

So make one.
But why ??

The only reasons i can see for a centre stand is static stability or maintenance.
The possibility of an engineered 'all in one' design is a fruitless endeavour in my opinion.

This bike needs it's add on's but can certainly do without blatently unnecessary weighty additions.

Bash plate/engine guard, brake rotor guard, radiator guard, sprocket guard, and life insurance sould pretty much cover the 'guards' needed.

Centre stands make it easy when the inevitable flat happens.
So SO EASY!

The one on the 640 would be lighter than most side stands on Jap bikes i reckon

Here's what I use for fixing flats and lubing the chain in the boonies.

Easily fits in the tank bag.
