Motorcyclist installed a SW-Motech center stand on the gen 3 Versys long term test bike they had. They reported that although the instructions said to trim the lower fairing, it wasn't required. FWIW, the previous owner installed a SW-Motech center stand on the SV 650 I bought, and there was the same side stand interference. I didn't know that was abnormal, since it was my first bike and the only one I've ever had with a center stand. I would always put the side stand down before getting off the bike anyway, then deploy the center stand. Once I remounted, I'd roll off of the center stand then put the side stand up.
