The must-have accessory for sport-touring! Greatly eases basic chain maintenance, tire changes, parking, and bike cleaning. Super-strong steel construction features typical German design and high engineering standards. Superb integration with the factory exhaust and sidestand components -- retain all existing features without sacrificing lean angle or clearances.
All hardware needed to mount the centerstand included. Typically installs using basic hand tools. No welding, cutting, or drilling of existing frame or body parts required. Tough black powdercoated finish with some gray fittings or hardware as applicable. A double-retention spring is included as a safety feature to prevent the centerstand from contacting pavement if one of the two springs should fail during a ride. Designed to work with OEM components -- we cannot assure fit with aftermarket exhausts or other accessories.
Fits Honda VT600C Shadow VLX / VLX Deluxe models 1988 & later*.
Special Note: We do not recommend installing centerstands on bikes with a lowered rear suspension because use on a lowered bike may result in:
- ground clearance & cornering clearance problems, and
- difficulty in lifting the lowered bike onto the centerstand.
* SW-MOTECH indicates that this item only fits 1988-1999 models; this is correct only for their home country (Germany), where sales of the VT600 ended in 1999. In North America, the VT600 continued to be sold unchanged through 2008.
