Such a versatile bike that it may depend on the bikes usage. As for me, my bike is off road 95+% of the time. I can't imagine having a center stand to contend with in rough terrain. I'd run my bike without a kickstand before putting a center stand on it. In my case, it would seriously jeopardize the cool factor!

I do foresee an application for it. If you're running street wheels, my guess is you don't see much dirt. It might be useful in that case.

It's something all of us owners must grapple with, because we get to ride such a versatile bike.

One thing is for sure, I wouldn't run a center stand just to make shop work easier.

I've seen a lot of set-ups I would NOT run and thought to myself, that's cool!
Hello P.S,

yes, the bike will be for road use only ..... and will be fitted with sumo wheels that came from W.S :D

In answer to Wilso's post, Fowlers indicate that the same stand was used on the 990 as well ............

'HOW' references these stands (note 2003-04 / 2007-08 / 2009 /10 are the same [which will fit the S.E])

These are the centerstands manufactured for the various models of Adventure;

2003-2004 "S" Model - 6000302200030 = 379mm
2003-2004 Standard - 60003022144 = 346mm
2005-2010 Standard - 6000302240030 = 333mm
2005 "S" Model - 6000302230030 = 359mm
2006 "S" Model - 5750302210030 = 378mm
2007-2008 "S" Model - 6000302200030 = 379mm
2009-2010 "R" Model - 6000302200030 = 379mm

Hello,

just an update on the stand issue.

I fitted another of Charlies stand bushes, so with two fitted, I could use the stand that i linked in an earlier posting .

Excuse very poor pictures.

All I had to do with the stand, was to cut the u shaped supports down to 30mm to fit under the bushes.

I wonder if the bike will stay balanced when either wheel is removed?
