I installed this in a few hours. It lifts the bike very easily. It took a couple tries to get the hang of getting the bike off the stand. Looks great and works better. (Posted on 14-12-18)

Great quality -- folds up neatly and easy to put the bike up on the stand. One minor issue: the upper allen head bolt on the exhaust side was impossible to reach to tighten. I replaced it with a hex head bolt and it worked fine. (Posted on 14-10-14)

I bought the centerstand to "complete" my 2011 650 Vstrom. I watched the video of the installation on the Twisted Throttle website and my installation went well. It took me about 45 minutes....be sure to mount the attachment side plates and the centerstand together at the same time, not one side at a time.

When it was done I decided to set the Vstrom on the centerstand and oil the chain. The video even showed the installer putting the motorcycle up on the centerstand after the installation was completed. I looked so simple!

To my surprise I initially was unable to "mobilize" my Vstrom onto the centerstand without fearing It was going to tip over from the upright position it requires to get it up on the centerstand. It wasn't that I didn't have good grip areas on the rear tail rack or front handlebar to get it upright. I just felt uneasy that it would tip over away from me.

My friend who also has a centerstand on his adventure bike came over and stood on the right side of my bike while I tried again to get it up on the centerstand with one fluid motion. What I discovered was that when I pushed down on the centerstand bar with my foot and swung the bike to the upright position I could feel the right and left pegs of the centerstand briefly stabilizing the bike enough that I could easily then pull the bike up onto the centerstand without fearing it would tip over. It took a few times to get the motion and the smoothness down but it now is routine. The key thing to remember is that once you have your foot firmly down on the centerstand bar and you push your bike to the upright position it will NOT tip over away from you. (Posted on 14-07-31)

I bought this centerstand for my '07 wee strom so that I could work on oil changes and chain maintenance without an external stand. This was money well spent - the installation was very easy to understand (although a bit finicky), and the stand works great. Despite being a taller bike than some of my old vintage machines, it's really easy to get the bike up on the stand, and when not in use it doesn't seem to interfere with ground clearance that I would need. This basically looks like a stock piece, and I would absolutely recommend putting this on as a first order of business after buying a Wee. (Posted on 14-07-07)

I was able to install this very easily (20 minutes) and it works really well. The instructions were easy to follow. Don't forget to buy grease, locktight and have your torque wrench available. (Posted on 13-06-22)
