My dealer says center stand not available. I'm in the US. Has anyone got one?
Only the U.S. models did not come with one.Mine came with one.......
Been a long time since I had a bike with a centre stand.....going to like it for cleaning the back wheel!!!! Strange that it doesn't come with the bike in the US or with the heated grips......I'm looking forward to using those in the Spring and Fall!!!Only the U.S. models did not come with one.
That and the heated grips or 12v socket.
I don't mind not having a center stand... yet.
So far have been able to do anything I need to by setting the side stand on a block of wood. There will be a time I may need to stand the bike straight up and I still plan to do that with the front wheel chock. I prefer to have the 12v socket in the right saddle bag where I put mine, rather than where Honda deems it should go... under the seat behind the right rear cheek just behind the right shock.
Don't know that one.So I can see how a centerstand would allow one to remove the back wheel...but how could one remove the front? How do dealers even do it? overhead chain/strap lift of some kind?
I wouldn't be so quick to unload it -- you could probably trim up a couple of lengths of 2x4 to contour around the delicate parts and settle under the liftable ones. I haven't looked under mine closely yet, but that's what I plan to do with my lift ... if I ever get around to it.I guess I will need to sell my motorcycle lift then. I bought it to lift my Honda Fury... only used it about three times.
