Why the vstrom doesnt come with a center stand is beyond me. This one was easy to install and works great. Twisted throttle was super fast in getting it to me. Next day for free. Really? (Posted on 12/4/14)

I bought this product after oiling my chain once without a stand of any kind. lots of rolling the bike around. I was seriously considering purchasing a track stand, but it seemed like it would take up more room in the garage and be more difficult to use by myself.

I only had one issue with installation (cross-threaded the forward/bottom bolt on shifter side behind the foot peg) not a lot of clearance for a socket allen. I would suggest starting the bolt with an allen key, and torquing it with the socket once it is fully in. I was able to to fix the issue by driving a shorter bolt from the other side to straighten the threads. This was in no way caused by the stand, but by the location of the predrilled hole on the Strom, and user ignorance.

The stand works perfectly and feels very secure. I was a bit apprehensive the first time I used it as I had never used a center stand before, but I watched a few videos and discovered that by pressing down on the stand and using the passenger foot peg as a handle to pull straight up on the bike pops up very nicely with little apparent effort.

Before purchasing this stand I was concerned about cornering clearance. I read somewhere that other stands require lengthening the left side peg feeler. I haven't scrapped the pegs yet, but I like having that space just in case. There are no such issues with this stand. I don't ride off road so i am not sure how it would affect ground clearance, but it doesn't appear that it would cause any issues.

I am impressed by the quality of SW Motech parts and will certainly be using them to continue improving my Strom

Install was easy and took an hour or less. No need for a special spring tool. Use a long heavy flat head screw driver with flat sides for plenty of leverage. (Posted on 11/13/14)

There is a reason most people view products from SW-Motech as the best. This centerstand for my 2013 V-Strom 650 bolted on with no issues whatsoever and compliments their engine guards perfectly. With such fast shipping and the advice of the "string" trick, this was the best way to go! (Posted on 10/11/14)

The package arrived right on time. Upon opening it I was a bit overwhelmed at the number of pieces (22 in all) and the fact that all of the wording that I initially saw was in german. However there were very clear pictures and diagrams that took me thru the assembly step by step and the whole centerstand went together and onto my Strom without a hitch. A perfect fit and of excellent quality materials and design. Worth ever penny. (Posted on 9/26/14)

The install wasn't bad, just go slowly and double check the bolt lengths. There is one that's in a tight spot, and you won't want to have to pull it out and redo it. (Posted on 9/22/14)

This center stand was easy to install and works great. It is very easy to get my bike up on the stand and it sits on it solidly. When I push my bike off the stand it comes down smoothly. This stand just plain works perfectly. (Posted on 8/31/14)

The installation of the centerstand was straightforward and easy. The installation video shows you how to easily connect the springs without the optional spring installation tool. The quality of the product is excellent. I have used the OEM centerstand as well, and I feel that the SW-MOTECH centerstand is better (easier to put the bike up). The SW-MOTECH centerstand is also less expensive than the OEM centerstand. (Posted on 7/7/14)

Easy install and perfect fit, but one mounting bolt is a bit challenging to get to. Incredibly smooth to put on the stand once installed. By far the best center stand I have used. (Posted on 8/21/13)
