Center stand

Post by Thunderdawg » Wed Apr 04, 2018 12:05 am


If someone else started a thread on this, my apologies. I put my SE up on the center stand recently and was pleasantly surprised how easy it is to use. Both up and down were very easy. My recent experience base is a pair for Triumph Sprint STs since 2001. And the Sprint is about 100 lbs lighter than the SE.

It is amazingly easy to use, I used mine for the first time yesterday.

When I tried it out at the Chicago IMS show I was also quite impressed with it. I actually commented out loud "Well, they got that geometry right!"

I agree with Cooter 100%. My C14 was much harder to get up on the stand. This thing is easy.

Now the next question is why does the side stand keep the bike too vertical? It should be over a bit more.

My issue with the side stand is the post that sticks out the side of the kickstand is too far forward and to short. I hope I get used to its position.

I'm finding the side stand easier and easier each day. Just have to get used to it. Having it stand the bike up too vertical is going to bite me in the ass. I'm afraid I'm going to walk away and it's going to fall right over.

the sidestand is a piece of cake compared to my Ducati, lol

The other super nice thing about the center stand is it does not use the exhaust as a stop. It has its own bracket.

This should greatly expand available exhausts you could use while keeping the very nice feature

Love the centerstand. you almost don't have to pull up on the bike to get it up, just step down firmly and it pops right up. the sidestand is a little tricky though, at least at first.

I love the centerstand and the ease of use, but I've only used it a handful of times and it's already starting to rust. If the corrosion continues, I'd be a little afraid to use it. Anybody else notice this problem?
