WTB Honda (not SW-Motech) Center Stand for '03 niner

Hello gents. First post today.

I'm in DC and the local Honda dealer does not seem to have the center stand that I am looking for.

If you have a Honda centerstand that you are not using, I would like to buy it. Feel free to list offers or PM me.

Welcome! Search the site for the Phobman stand. You may like it more than the OEM.

I found an OEM CS here so it's a possibility. I did read that the SW Motech doesn't require loosening the exhaust and separating the Y pipe from the header like the Honda CS does. That alone would be nice. That was a PITA.

I looked at the Phobman stand, which I admit is ingenious. I would go that way if I had a (full-time) garage at home, but as is I street park ~50% of the time.
So I'm looking for one that mounts permanently.

I saw the thread where a member chopped the center out of their OEM center stand to dramatically reduce on/off time.

I'd like to perform that surgery, mount the stand, and leave it on more or less permanently. Intending to travel with the bike, not track it.

Does this sound like a good plan, or should I just drop the cash on the SW-Motech stand? It looks larger/heavier, and at 450lbs I'm trying to add as little weight to this thing as possible.

I wouldn't want to cut an oem stand myself since it comes painted or powder coated. Then again a litrle rattle can fixes any rust concern I guess. The OEM stand is nice but if no one has one the SW-Motech is your only option, unless you can find one on ebay or another site. I was ready to buy the SWM stand myself but lucked out here.

I love having a permanent stand. Shit I'd sell my Pitbull now if shipping it wouldn't be a fortune. I'll probably just give it away.

I bought a stock stand when I got the bike new.
When I started doing track days I took it off.
Later, I saw Member ?'s brilliant idea of chopping out the centre of the top tube.
I took it one step further.
Carefully did nice cuts with the hack saw.
Carefully square filed the ends of the all faces, cutout section included.
Found a washer and filed to get nice snug fit of stand/washer/cutout stack.
This way way less junk can get in between the pin and the tube.
Coat with antiseize. (making worry about paint on the cut/filed surfaces irrelevant)
Easy on off.
And I still use the penny trick for the spring, that one of my best friends showed me over 40 years ago.

No idea what the "penny trick" is but I have a son who was on his HS weight lifting team and he pulled it on by hand.

When stand is down, jam pennies between the coils.
One at a time, one only between two coils.
Do enough so the spring is elongated enough for super easy on off.
The last pennies will need some help, wedge the coils apart with a flat screwdriver enough to get edge of the penny in as a start towards full insertion.
Use linesman pliers to hold the pennies for pushing into place.
The pennies get gouged and dirty, save them for future re-use.
A baggy in your tool box to hold the pennies until next time.

Full insertion? You willing to type that around here, huh? J/k

That's a sweet idea right there.

This is all good info.

Really hope someone is trying or willing to get rid of a honda center stand though... might need to contact a moto salvage place.

A buddy of mine found a lot of old Elsinore parts for a '74 250 he was restoring on findmypart.com . Some Honda dealer may have some NOS parts just sitting around the shop. Worth a try anyway.

You click on Motorcycle Parts then I wanta' say you put the part number in the Description. I'll ask him.

Here's one just down I-95 (Coleman Powersports in Woodbridge, VA). You may want to call to see if they really have it...or you may have already checked there.

Talked to my buddy and, if that one doesn't work out, describe the part and put the part number in the description on findmypart.com . He found a bunch of parts for his '65 econoline that way too.

Somewhere there's a warehouse full of factory flyscreens, factory centerstands, and Givi crash bars. We just don't know where it is yet.

It wasn't that long ago that there were still new 919s in crates at some dealerships...
