Center Stand

Hello folks of WT,
First time poster. I've had my 2007 919 for a couple of months. As you would imagine I'm loving it tremendously. My question is where could I get a center stand at a reasonable price. I figure someone here may know a thing or two.
Thanks guys/gals

Try Twistedthrottle.com. They have a center stand that does not require exhaust removal. I bought the Honda stand from the stealership. I was a bit of a pain with all the wiggle n' jiggle with the exhaust but came out perfect and works flawlessly. Highly Recommended!!

Welcome to the site! I also installed a Honda factory centerstand. It was a major pain to put on, but now that it is on it works perfectly and I dont think I could live without it.

Knees in the breeze!

I put the factory Honda centerstand on the wifes 919 and somewhere on this site it shows how to cut the centerstand to go around the pipe. I did it and her stand was on in no time.

I have the OEM stand, but recommend the SW Motech stand Smitty mentions simply for it's considerably easier installation. In price and structure they are equivalent, and either is preferable to a removable stand such as the Phobstand if you don't happen to be in the garage when you need it. And just so you know, I have zero chicken strips and have never come anywhere near dragging it in a corner.
Neither of these stands nor the Phobstand will work on a California model with an evaporative cannister.

If it has already been done, it is safe to assume it is possible to do it.
On the other hand, if it has not been done never assume it is impossible to do it.

Thanks guys for the great advice. I think I'll be going with the SW-MOTECH Centerstand due to its easier installation. I hope it's quality is equal to the OEM stand.

Anyone here have the SW-MOTECH Centerstand installed. And better yet, have a picture. Thanks again!

I have that one. Takes a few minutes to install. You already have the studs welded to the bike frame. Slide the stand on the studs from the side. Put the washer and keeper on. hang the duel springs and stretch like hell to hook them.
I wouldn't give mine up for 10 gallons of Premium gas!!
