    The suicide side stand makes me wary of using it. If the bike gets nudged the stand could spring back and the bike fall. Can anything be done? Is it as simple as taking off the spring? Would this mean the bike may not start? Thanks in advance.

    If you have a Dakar without a centre stand and you want to change a tyre or adjust your chain this could be the tool for you. Having sold my Dakar it is taking up workshop space so make me an offer.

    Anyone know which of these two stands would be the best for a lowered F650GS '09 and best place to go for price. I would like to put a centre stand on my bike and have read that I can modify one to do the job with cutting, welding etc...:think: Any help or advice very welcome. Cheers Tony.

    I would like a centre stand for my '04 CS . One discussion is which centre stand - and I have read all the posts, concluding that "you pay your money and take your choice. There are as many for a given brand as against. A second issue is whether a lowered seat on an F650CS imposes any...

    Something I worked out and thought may be useful for others. When I fitted a centre stand, my side stand interfered with it. However I noticed that the frame has 5mm tapping in the perfect position for a side stand stop. It may be that mine was missing, and they have these anyway! I then found...

    Hi, I am waiting delivery of a new annniversary edition F650GS after 12 years riding my R100GS. The new bike will not have a centre stand and I am unsure whether to fit a centre stand, or to get paddock stands or a bike lift, for servicing. I would appreciate any suggestions. Regards.

Has anybody on this forum fitted one of these kits?, if so could you 'e' mail me a photograph of the completed installation please. with fraternal greetings...

    Hi, I have bought a 2005 Dakar with a kouba link 2" lowering kit fitted which makes it my height and one of the reasons I bought it. I was wondering whether to fit the hebco decker centre stand to make chain maintenance, general maintenance easier. But, I'm not sure if being lower would cause...

    Hi I have a 2002 650 GSD that has no centre stand as standard. However, it is lowered by a couple of inches and I got hold of a new stand from a similar age GS. Fits the lugs fine and looks OK, but on lifting it onto the stand it immediately fell over on the offside. :-( So having picked it up...

    Where the stand is connected to the frame, is that the engine cut off switch above it? Anyway on my bike it is litterally just sat there sandwiched between the frame and the stand and moves about a bit when you touch it. It isnt going to fall off but is it supposed to be screwed down somehow...

    I'm unhappy about putting my 98 ST on it's sidestand as it seems to be extremely upright and therefore vulnerable to being knocked over. Is it sensible to increase the lean angle, and is there an easy way to do it?

    hello I have had a look around the forum but cant find an answer. Will the F650GS (2001 model) start on its side stand in neutral. I only ask as I have been having some problems with mine and have been told that it wont start on the stand and mine will. Many thanks Nick

    As the Dakar has no centre stand and I have no intention of fitting one, I purchased an Abba superbike stand. The stand is too small to work with the swingarm bolts, it would barely lift it off the ground and the footrest gets in the way any how. I can still use it however with a still rod and...
