    Centre stand - who's retrofitted it?

    Has anyone retrofitted a centre stand for their Crossrunner?

    Bought an '04 VFR 800 centre stand off eBay and need to source all the bits before fitting it.

    I think I'll need the following parts:
    SPRING ASSY., MAIN STAND
    SUB SPRING, MAIN STAND
    RUBBER, MAIN STAND SPRING
    PIPE, MAIN STAND PIVOT
    PLATE, MAIN STAND SPRING
    WASHER, PLAIN, 19MM
    RUBBER C, STAND STOPPER
    BOLT, FLANGE, 8X20
    GASKET (BETWEEN DOWNPIPE/SILENCER)

    Adds up to about £75 plus postage at official prices, unless anyone's got ideas to source cheaper bits or if they're available as a kit etc.

    I'm going on a few longer trips so I think fitting the stand would be worthwhile.

    Ta for that - previously did a search for the word 'centre' in the title which is why that didn't show up!

    I bought an SW Motech centre stand £100 - very easy to fit and you DONT have to touch the exhaust pipe it fits on easily around it. Well worth it!!

    Now that sounds like a better option...is it still available for around that price?

    Also, I see there's the Honda one offered on eBay, but the SW Motech one 'looks' appreciably lighter?
