WTB: Center stand for Honda CB600F (Hornet 599)

Just bought a 2004 Hornet 599 and would like to get a center stand for it.

If you don't have one, thanks for any pointers where I can find one.

Thx,

CowboyBiker

I bought the SW-Tech center stand and installed it.

I had my doubts, but it actually fits quite nice. It uses the lower rear engine mounting bold to attach the bracket and another frame hole to attach a bolt to prevent the bracket from pivoting. All necessary part were included, incl. a longer engine mounting bolt.

The center stand arm support was a bit close to the chain (was a bit looser on the stand), so I put a piece of automotive door rubber on the stop of the stand. This way it doesn't clunk on the bracket when the bike comes off the center stand and there is a soft stop if the bike ever gets leaned that far over to scrape the pavement. Plus there should be no chance of the chain ever touching the center stand - unless I forget to tighten the chain. ;^(

This topic can be considered closed.

$265!!? Ouch.

I'd love to have one, but that's a bit much. You wouldn't think those thing would be in high demand.

I'd love to have a center stand on my 599. But for that price, I'll keep using the Pit Bull.

How are you liking that 599, Cowboy?

I actually bought it in Europe with free shipping and brought it with me in the plane. And if you do it right, you get the 19% VAT tax back since it was exported.

Basically, I got it for about half of what you quoted. It definitely was a cheap move by Honda to leave it off the bike.

When traveling, it is too much of a pain to lube the chain et al without a center stand. If I only drove around here, I don't think I would have gotten it.

Keep the rubber side down.

Half price?! What the hell?! Why didn't you bring one for me?

OK. Next time, you go to Germany and lug them across the ocean. I am sure others would gladly place their orders with you. ;^)

If not, I am sure another one will come on the market on this group.

Hang in there...

If my kid gets stationed at Ramstein, I WILL go to Germany. But he's going to Burlington Vt when he gets back from Korea.
