There's one in the current DP parts catalogue. I was interested but I couldn't see how it could be attached despite the dealer saying it would be ok. A bit pricy so I didn't bother with it (more important mods happening at the time), but I'd be interested if you find one for your 900. And if you do, pics please.
That foot lever is huge. I wonder if it could be cut down or if you really need it that big to get the bike up on the stand.
The only bike I had with centre stand was this one. Foot lever was small. As I remember all you needed to do was use your foot on the lever to lower the stands main legs down to the concrete, then stand on the foot lever (put your weight on it) then lift the bike with the passenger grab bar. The foot lever was just to hold the stand down while you lifted the bike. But with this stand you have is the foot lever used to lift the bike?
Yeah, well Wanwo, that lil Honda is a fair bit lighter than a 900 Monsta !!!
The lengthy lever makes it very easy to haul the 'bike up.
There's three reasons I did things my way. Firstly I try to avoid irrevocably boogering up parts I've just paid good money for wherever possible - I can always sell the stand as an ST2 item in future.
Secondly the Monsta is rather wide and I didn't want to have to be fishing around under the muffler looking for a small obscure foot lever. That's a recipe for dropping the 'bike one day ( or night ).
Thirdly the exercise worked out damm well, I've been out for a nice blast today, stopped and used the stand a dozen times on all sorts of terrain, it is highly functional.
Have added another two pics to the web page showing where the bends were done and where the foot pad has ended up.
Question - should I do a post on the main DML message board so other owners can see the mod - or are those Muricans, Poms, etc already sick of hearing about how folks in Oz get off their arse and do things for themselves ??
Maybe I should wait til all those in Oz who want to fit centrestands have snapped up all available ST2/4 stands
Do you know which year model its off?
I ask because I was told that I couldn't take the centrestand off my 600 to the M1000S. So, I am interested in one. I've ridden around on the 1000 for 8 months and feel like I'd like to put one on again.
