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.
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!!
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.

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!!
