640 Adv's owners with centerstands

Hi all,

At Tech Daze recently I mentioned I would be adding the "tab" that allows you to more easily put you bike on the centerstand onto my stand (the one later year models have).

LC4 Pilot mentioned that he would like a set of the parts I have fabricated to have welded on (at his location) too...

Sooo, I am putting it out to you all right now. I do not know the price yet, I merely need a number so I can get it over to my guy so he can do it all in one batch (and get a price) - They would be delivered to you in their raw metal state suitable for welding, everything else would be up to you to get done (I will include Creep's diagram for your welder). I cannot imagine it will be all that much. PM me before the end of the week if you are interested.

Thanks.

I would be interested in one of these for my SXC and could possible find more buyers if you decide to start making a number of them

Sorry if I'm not up to speed on other threads, but could you explain what you're doing a little more? Is this just a tab on the factory centerstand so that you don't have to chock the centerstand leg with your foot?

Precisely that Mark... I have been using a sidestand only because I thought of the centerstand as an unnecessary PITA. I then rode Boejangles bike and noticed just how easy that tab made it to use the centerstand.

All that I would be providing is the tab and support - attachment to your stand is up to you.

From PM's and this thread looks like we have 4 and a maybe right now...

I will take "orders" till COB Friday and then find out the price per piece for ya'll.

This will likely be one time thing - you can all thank Anthony for his foresight in jumping in to see if he could get the parts Just thought I would toss it out while my guy is on it

PS - Arch/Rad, other mods - if you don't mind could you refrain from tossing this in the vendor forum? This is just a one time deal for my KTM Thumper buds... Thanks

It is going to be a one time thing. I am not trying to make any money off this, just a favor to my buds here...

I would be happy to pass on the specs to you though so your buddies could get their own done should they not get in on this.

If you look at Boejangle's centerstand you will see a "tab" sticking out off of it.

This is the peice I am referrinf to and going to have welded on to mine.

General instructions (even without the tab we're discussing):

1. Push the centerstand down until it touches the ground. Put your right foot on it, to keep it from sliding/moving when you hoist the bike onto it.

2. Keep your left hand on the left handlebar grip, and grab one of the following options with your right hand:

A. The kickstarter (swing it out and use as lever). Make sure you only use the kickstarter with the bike NOT running.

B. The passenger footpeg bracket. Be careful not to burn your hand on the Exhaust!

C. The rear rack side attaching rail (on the forward left side of the rear fender)

3. Carefully pull the bike onto the centerstand. Put a little muscle into it, and it should not be too difficult. Keep your foot on that centerstand until the bike is up securely on it.

I tend to use the kickstarter most, but if I need to do it with the engine running, I use the rear rack. I hate getting burned!

The tab that Passy's gonna have fabricated makes the whole process much easier with far less muscular effort.
