Honda 919 OEM Centerstand

All,

My brand new Honda 919 OEM centerstand arrived today. The package is unopened. I need to sell it because I do not want to modify the headers in any way. I found out about the SW-Motech 919 Centerstand on this forum only after this was purchased.

I would like to sell it for $155 with shippping INCLUDED (I bought it for over $160 plus shippping). I would also be willing to trade for a new Motech centerstand.

Please PM if interested. Thanks in advance.

Dave

I don't blame you for wanting to go with the motech stand, but just an FYI (and since you already paid for the Honda unit) you don't have to modify anything on the 919 to put the OEM unit on. You do have to unbolt the header, but it goes right back on without any modification whatsoever. Putting the OEM stand on is slightly time-consuming, but you don't need to cut, bend, or modify anything on the bike.

Just to add to what Bock already said, there is a way to cut the Honda stand to fit the bike without leaving it on all the time. You really should read the sticky posted in the naked bike section. Answers to most of the questions you ask are found their or on the websites linked there.

Hey Bock919,

So as I was reading the post titled, "Center Stand/Evaporative Canister??" I assumed that the cutting was necessary even to install the stand. But I guess a closer reading suggests that the cutting of the OEM stand by MotoCycho was done in order to make easier the taking of the centerstand on/off.

I will still have to remove the carbon cannister, but since I plan on riding with the centerstand anyways, I don't mind putting in the initial time investment of putting on the OEM stand.

Thank you very much, Bock919.

Btw, if there is anyone out there that has read "The Wisdom of Crowds" by Surowiecki, Bock919's reply led me to thinking about what the book intends to capture. Needless to say, forums like these can definitely be a teaching tool.

Best,

Dave

I think it is just a gut reaction of being told by Mike to search for answers instead of just asking any old question.
