Anyone put the Vs. center stand on yet?

The center stand is not bad, but jeez(!) the bag with nuts and steel parts feels like 30 lbs.

I'm sure some are replaced nuts/bolts that are longer now. And there looks like steel fab pieces below the muffler since the frame structure was not enough to support the centerstand (at least i won't need a steel bottom structure cover to protect those expensive ss pipes now - not the back half anyway.) Maybe the shipper accidentally knocked over a coffee can of odd nuts and bolts in my order, but the weight increase will be a little disturbing.

It's about the weight increase I figured for a dozen new parts. Unless someone has previous experience here, I'll leave it up to my mechanic to sort it out (he'll do it anyway, but I'd like to help him all I can... to save labor dollars :-) He's going to flip when he sees all the nuts and bolts. He'll figure it out in a couple of minutes, but he always wants me to know how hard it was. If he has scales, I'll weigh my bike before and after he puts that and my crash bars and everything else I have by that time. Well, it did feel too light anyway (Not.) I might have to get that AL rear rack a Vs. member here makes to save 3 lbs anyway (although I was hoping more to save $150! - I may save both - ?)
