Question when adding a center stand

When adding a center stand (the one by ConStands) to the 650, can you do it with just the side stand supporting the bike or must the bike be upright, supported by someone else / rear stand?

Thanks,
Dave

Not too sure on your request, but you should be able to fit with side stand on. A paddock stand will assist your fitting the center stand, but if you don't have one, try fitting with the side stand on.

When installing my T-rex Center Stand. My side stand was also used as a means of support. So I would also assume the one you purchased would be similar.

It's been swell, but the swelling has gone down.

When I recently put my Constand on, I did it using the side stand. Did not cause any problems at all.
Also, instructions wants you to trim the plastic guard but I found that it was not necessary.
Their instructions could have been better but nothing was very difficult.

Can do it with a side stand. But...make sure you know what you're going to do to get that spring in place! On my CTX I used ratchet straps around the rear wheel. For my Versys I wound up using a ratchet strap but pulling back on it like I was rowing a boat! It worked!!!

Hi folks, I've recently bought a V650. Previous owner bought a ConStand center stand, but never mounted it. Now all I've got are bunch of bits and pieces and no idea at all how to put it together

Could one of you please take a couple of photos of instructions for me?

Unfortunately, these are instructions for older model :/ My V is 2018 model, there is a different center stand for that one, it would seem.
But it might prove useful nevertheless, I guess it can't be that much different, so thanks

If it's not much of a trouble, it would be great, yes!
