This really makes it easy to get the bike up on the stand! I can do basic wheel and chain maintenance without straining my back lifting the bike up on a stand now! If anyone wants one, I think Charlie made a few extras.



Thanks again Charlie!
Good work!

By the way: have you used this center stand before or it's your first experience with it?
I ask because I am always "going to" add surface to the support ends of mine because its kinda "sinker" when not on hard dirt . They easily nail down into the planet from time to time... but now I see yours are even smaller than mine in that department. May be support ends have a 50% (or more) smaller surface compared to mine.
Of course It all depends on the terrain you have most of the time, but... just saying...

Wish I had a center stand.

My bike didn't come with the center stand. The PO removed and then lost it Kinda wish I had it. If anyone has an extra laying around for cheap, shoot me a pm.

maybe you need a welded on helper pedal on each side for parking on soft soil.

I'm not following you. What part hits the earth? The middle/top where it is mounted to the frame?

MX,

Hey I used to live in Cedar Falls! Not a lot of KTMs up there!
Anyway, I PM'd you back. Just buy it from Charlie. No need for me to be a middle man.

OH...now I get it.."SINKER" as in "Sink into the ground when parked"!

Yes, I am pretty slow on the uptake sometimes.

No experience with this yet, but i haven't used it yet either. Got snowed out this weekend in So Cal!

MP: I'm thinking he is describing a problem with the throttle (as opposed to a problem with the front suspension).

He twists his wrist (backwards) and the front end is in the air.
