Yes you did. My TOLERANCE was [0" to over 2"] AFTER my gold DID Streetpro chain BANGED on the STEEL centerstand support for 7000 miles with only 1/64" tolerance on one side of the centerstand support--------- But maybe I did if you and JD are not just trashing an informative post on the Versys owner site with twisted logic, COMPLETELY OFF-TOPIC to the thread!
Normally I would sit back and keep my opinions to myself, this is my take on your level best to inform the Versys community
, of which I take pride in being part of , and in your process you
are trying to prevent others from making the same mistake you made, that is commendable.
It is very rare for me to own anything that is all original, almost everything I won has had some sort of modification. Some products may be so poorly engineered that no simple modification will ever correct the problem---which seems to be what you are indicating in regards to the center stand.
Where I have a problem, is you paid to have a mechanic install this, you imply this is very dangerous, my question is twofold, was your mechanic licensed and is he or she blind? I live in the land of ice and snow, here if you ask a mechanic to install something that could cause a accident, he has the right to refuse, as he could lose his license.
In closing, I have no doubt that JD could easily make this work, and if I wanted a center stand I am sure I could make it work-------as a cautionary note Dallas Don was producing center stands, one issue was with lowered Versys ( insufficient clearance to the rear wheel and the stand would scrape the ground cornering on lowered bikes), which I have, having a center stand would make my bike extremely dangerous to ride as there are times I have cornered with the pegs starting to scrape.
One last thing, I am not implying that you lack the know how to install this stand,you admitted that when you paid a mechanic to install it, what I question is why it took almost a year to find a problem, your expertise to find fault with it, not give the supplier a chance to correct it, what was the opinion of the mechanic that installed it and does he still have his license-------and finally, suggest this is the wrong forum for the previous posters.
And that is my two cents worth!!!!
