This SW-MOTECH centerstand is 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.
Does not fit the 2008 & newer KLR650. See Twisted Throttle Centerstand (Kawasaki KLR650E8F, '08-).
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 the pavement if one of the two springs should fail during a ride.
Fits with or without the SW-MOTECH skidplate for the KLR650.
Designed to work with OEM components -- we cannot assure fit with aftermarket exhausts or other accessories. If you have SW-MOTECH's Crashbars installed (SBL.08.274.100) you must use the screw kit.
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
- Difficulty in lifting the lowered bike onto the centerstand

My issue has been the accelerated wear on my peg mount bolts, all of which stripped. Luckily I have them safety wired so I didn't suffer a total peg failure.
Another consideration is that if you are going off road with this it has a cross member that hangs down lower than the skid plate. If it catches a sturdy enough obstacle it can rip your pegs clean off the frame.
I haven't removed mine yet, but when I have a work space again it will probably be replaced with one of those prop sticks. (Posted on 9/7/2015)
