I am not using the stock side stand for three reasons: the bushing and bolt are trash, it’s in an inconvenient location hidden by the cylinder and lower fairing panel when extended making it hard to deploy, and the bike came with a Brown’s side stand which mounts further back on the frame so it’s easy to deploy. The left exhaust header bracket is secured to the Brown’s side stand bracket so I installed the side stand when I installed the exhaust system.
I had the center stand repaired and powder coated. I replaced the pivot bolts and bushings due to wear and tear.
Here is a link showing I do this work.
I take the bike off the lift test out both stands. It’s nice to have it on the center stand again 🙂
