Center Stand Update.....I quit
Well boys and girls, I have sad news. I have worked every possible combination for a center stand and it just not going to happen. The main problem is the shift side food peg mount. It is not a stationary mount like the brake side and by being so, lets the peg rotate under load thereby moving the geometry of the stand by as much as an inch. I have fought it every day for a month now, spent a fair amount of money, and I hate to say it, but it just won't work. Short of drilling and tapping the frame, (which is much to much work, and would look awful) I'm licked. I hate to admit defeat, but I'm whipped.
Sorry to get your hopes up, but I tried. I'm looking at another angle, but it doesn't look promising either. Kawasaki intended that there be no center stand in their design and I guess they were serious.
If anything else develops I'll keep you posted.
