Stand was on back order for about 2 weeks but I knew that when I ordered it. I bought this brand due to reviews and so glad I waited to get it. Had no problem with install. I did have to clean the threads out on bike due to having 6000 miles on it and they had dirt and chain crud in them. Stand is very well made and fits like a glove. Tucks up high when up. The brackets hang down about 1/4 inch below the skid plate I have. I don't plan on slamming bike over logs and rocks so its not an issue for me. Stand holds bike very securely. I have clam shell style saddle bags and it is easier to put things in left bag with bike standing up straight. Stand will make chain maintenance much easier on longer trips. I did use a swing arm stand on spools at home but that was in the way a bit. Main stand is the ticket. You wont be disappointed. (Posted on 5/11/15)

Great add on to my V-Strom. Easy to install if you lay your parts out on the parts list provided. Probably took 30-45 mins. Did not need the spring tool, since a good screwdriver works well. The hardest part was learning how to get the bike up on the centerstand. Once you get the idea that you need to put all of your weight on the stand, the bike goes up on its own. Took a few times to figure it out. It made cleaning and tightening my chain so much easier. This should be stock on V-Stroms-come on Suzuki! (Posted on 3/12/15)

Purchased stand for a new '14 V-strom 650. Stand was very well made and comes with clear instructions. A few tips to help out during installation:
1. Fine threaded bolts can get cross threaded easily- run bolt through hole before installation to clean out the threads.
2. Right side bracket tolerance for the two mounting holes is very tight, be careful during installation (see number 1 above, you may want to ream the holes out a little if you have problems getting the bolts started)
3. Upper Allen bolt on right side cannot be tightened using a normal Allen wrench. You will need a long ball head wrench to tighten the bolt. If you have a socket drive Allen bit you may be able to remove the bit and turn it with a regular crescent wrench.
4. The double spring is very stiff but you can easily install it with brake spring pliers. (Posted on 1/20/15)

I did a lot of internet research on center stands for my 2014 Suzuki Vstrom 650 and settled on the SW-Motech stand. The stand is top quality and the instructions are detailed and clear. You may want to read through them completely a couple of times before starting. It will also make the job easier if you CAREFULLY examine all the pieces and fasteners and sit each piece on its corresponding picture on the parts list. This way, as you go through the installation instructions, you can easily grab the EXACT piece you need, as there are several different fastener and sizes of spacers.Take your time and you will love the result. It is easy to get the bike up on the center stand, even for us older guys! (Posted on 12/28/14)

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)
